Item Condition: New
Shipping Options: Pickup available and you can audition.,Shipping is included in price.
Suburb or Town: Beautiful Brissy
State: Queensland
Payment Method: Bank Transfer, Cash, PayPal, Beer, Good Wine
Reason for selling: Cos I can

Further information:    What happens when you combine double baked 99.99% stranded copper wire, 99.99% solid copper wire and twisted 99.99% solid silver jewellery grade wire in a speaker cable 

 

Answer is, an astonishingly open and clear sound.  The widest soundstage I have ever heard. Unbelievable highs, mids to die for and tight bass.  It’s the combination of shielded and unshielded wire, along with the varying gauges that produce this incredible sound.

 

I search weird and wonderful forums ( yes there are other Hifi forums ) world wide in the pursuit of better cables ideas   Then something clicks.  I awoke at 3am on Sunday morning and made this cable.   Only time I really have for experimenting.   They do take quite some time to make. Plugged it in and was just gobsmacked at the resulting sound ( and this is before they are burnt in ) 

 

The cables are 2 seperate cable runs per speaker. ( I can techflex them together if required, but part of my research is suggesting they are better as seperate cables 

 

I will take some other pics later but here are some quick ones I have snapped of my prototype cables. 
 

Price ( 4 cables or 2 if techflexed together )  And include express postage 

 

2m.    $700

2.5m  $750

3m.    $800

 

Locking bananas or spades available 


PM my for other lengths 

 

This will be the last speaker cable upgrade for quite some time.    The Pinnacle think

Hi Bill , how is it compared to your boutique cables ?

 Thanks 😊 

I was amazed how the soundstage improved and the detail also improved.  I still love the boutiques but this is next level.  Instrument separation also improved.  And the last improvement I’ll be considering in speaker cables for some time

Just going from strength to strength Bill, they look the business!

Thanks mate 

 

But I have to stop thinking of new cables.    At least for now.   Range is quite large already.   Covers most budgets I hope.    Now for the website   😬

Hi Bill,

 

Did you take any pics without their clothes on? I'm always up for a bit of cable porn...😊

 

They sound delicious and, if I had commensurate equipment, I would be tempted. The cost of divorce would be too high, unfortunately.

 a demo cable to SNA members will help?

 

 Nice looking cable Bill.

      Item Condition: Used Shipping Options: Pickup available and you can audition.,Shipping is available at agreed cost. Suburb or Town: Birkdale State: QLD Payment Method: Cash on pickup, PayPal, EFT Reason for selling: NLR I bought this from a fellow SNA member a little while back. I found that the combination of my tube DAC and this buffer was a tad to much. I then modified it to also be a headphone amp. I was surprised how good it sounded, but having a souped up Bottlehead Crack, I found I wasn’t getting much time on this. If you are looking to add that bit of tube warmth and liquid mids to your system, this will work wonders for you and the addition of the headphone output is the cream on the cake. As usual Eric has used quality parts throughout this build and his point to point circuits are of an excellent standard.
       
      Unit is supplied with 4 x power tubes and 2 x rectifier tubes, so plenty of rolling to be had. Unit has a switch on the front to set it up for 6as7 or 5998 tubes.
       
      Please note the buffer will only driver high impedance headphones and doesn’t have a volume control, I was using my DAC to control the volume.

      Item Condition: Near new – excellent condition 1/10/2020 Shipping Options: Pickup available and you can audition.,Shipping is included in price. Suburb or Town: Teneriffe State: QLD Payment Method: Paypal Cash Reason for selling: Too many headphones KENNERTON THRIDI MAPLEWOOD LIMITED EDITION Planar Magnetic Headphones near new in original packaging with receipt and warranty card. Kennerton are a boutique high end audio company out of Russia. 
       
      Free shipping AUS
       
      The Thridis can be the most focused, intimate headphone in your line-up, in the absence of Focal Utopias. You get the idea. The reason Kennertons have an edge over Focal, is the tonal saturation and density. The Kennertons saturate the midrange with plenty of life and colour. Within the intimacy of its soundstage lies a very, very expressive performance. Music comes across with a zing and a zeal about it, the way it gets propelled at your ear. It's not something that any headphone, bar something like the Verite, can easily match. Consider it a great match with chamber piano, small vocals, and small jazz.

      Driver Planar Magnetic
      Driver Unit 80 mm
      Frequency Response 15-50000 Hz
      Sensitivity 104 dB
      Impedance 42 Ohm
      Cord length 2 m detachable copper cable (6.3 mm)
      Weight 580 g
       
      Our drivers are solely designed and produced in Russia, which involves a facility that also work for the aerospace and military industries, which ensures the highest quality and durability of our headphones.
      A new 80mm planar-magnetic driver, with every aspect of this technology being implemented, such as phase coherence, flat impedance and a low-mass diaphragm.
      Multi-layer 10µm polyimide film diaphragm, tested to have the highest reliability and longevity in the most extreme environmental conditions.
      FEM-Optimized Magnet System with 10 neodymium magnets arranged in symmetric push-pull configuration.
      Unique semicircular bar magnets.
      A semicircular form therefore has many advantages over the ordinary rectangular shaped bar magnets: It gives a more uniform magnetic field, greatly reduces internal resonances and produces an optimal sound.
      Our driver allows greater sensitivity, thanks to its powerful magnets and low-mass diaphragm. It can therefore be easily driven by portable devices.
      We aim for reliability and durability, and so used simple but functional construction.
      Aerospace grade aluminum and steel used.
      Quality wooden earcup.
      Complete absence of any plastic parts.
