    Talk3 Speaker Cable

    I am delighted to confirm that I will have large stocks of Talk3 'speaker cable plus the Talk Electronic's excellent Z-plugs (banana plugs) in stock as from next Monday. Cable will be sold as completed pairs to your specification for length or as per the completed cable lengths which will be shown on the RFC website as from the end of this week.

    This cable has gone down a storm with reviewers and the Hifi press! It ticks all the boxes:
    • low impedance
    • low capacitance
    • controlled inductance (not likely to be an issue at all for a vast majority of 'speaker/amp combinations)
    • promises superb detail delivery and bass response
    • highly flexible
    • large 2.5mm sqr high purity OFC conductors and a low loss dielectric
    As importantly, it offers arguably the very best speaker cable available today at or anywhere near it's price tag and outperforms cables costing many times more. A completely affordable well designed high quality cable that won't break the bank and is free of foo! Just what many enthusiasts have been searching for!

    Prices as shown on Website (minus the 10% discount for March on total order cost when ordered via the Wam by sending me a PM)

    I am happy to take pre-orders for terminated lengths now, just send me a PM.

    You know, I happened to notice recently that this is the cable that EB acoustics (the speakers i have) endorse and recommend. Tempting!

    How are the plugs connected...soldered or crimped?

    The connections can be either but I prefer to screw-clamp them over soldering as it effects a really good electrical contact plus allows re-use of the connectors at a later date if yu ever wanted to change the cable (The Z plugs used allow both methods). It's great speaker cable!

    Been using Talk3 for over a year now, and been extremely happy with it. Simple, no frills nor fuss cable that just gets on with the job - works particularly well with old Exposure amps. Highly recommended.

    Bump. I have plenty of stock left so if you want to be amongst the happy customers who have been delighted with this excellent cable, turnaround is currently just a day or two.

    This was a shock.

    Paul came a-visiting with a few of his own RFC interconnects and also a pair of the Talk 3 speaker cables that he now sells.

    Hah - I knew that my pukka audiophool Acoustic Zen Satori speaker cables would see the Talk 3 off, no problem. I was just curious as to by what margin the AZ cables would 'win' and whether the Talk 3 could be considered good vfm at its much lower price.

    Sigh.
    So much for expectation bias.
    The AZ cables are sold and the Talk 3 is now resident, and has been for a few weeks.
    Superbly clear, detailed and lucid. The music just flows out. The Talk 3 is the best speaker cable I have heard.

    And I reckon Paul's price is VERY competitive.

    Just alone to say thanks for the brilliant cables, the Talk 3 has replaced Acoustic Zen Hologram with no loss of quality at all. They sound brilliant at a tenth of the price of the AZs. Build is superb with the best fitting banana plugs I have ever seen.
    Also took delivery of a Reference digital cable and again I have nothing but superlatives for it.
    You are to be admired sir!
    So much music, so little time.....aren't valves brilliant!

    Many thanks Pete! That Talk3 is a good cable isn't it? Glad you like the Reference Digital too which is carefully assembled from very high quality components (it seems to be earning itself quite a reputation!).

    Thanks Paul - great cables. They've replaced Townshend Isolda without any loss of detail or quality. As Jerry said above "the music just flows out"

    super cable and every bit as good as my ( now sold) tellurium Q black and tested against my mates very expensive red dawn, he is now thinking of selling.
    Great guy to deal with and the terminations are very nice too. Win win all the way and for the price of a few pints.

    Is this different in configuration, size, materials etc than the old talk 3 cable Paul and how much would a 7m pair terminated at both end cost sir?

    Hi Steve, it's a more flexible cable than the old talk 3 and uses a different conductor and spacer plus a new low loss dielectric. In short, it's far better as are the Z connectors. I'll PM you with price details for the 7m terminated pair.

    I got a 5m set of Talk3 cables off Paul a couple of weeks ago & it is working very nicely in my system. Concur with what others have said with the banana plugs giving an excellent, tight fit in both the Amp & speaker ports .

    Very happy with my purchase.
