Jeezzzz..... I thought I was a bit over keen spending a grand on interconnect and speaker cables (Virtual Dynamics Nites I/C and David Speaker cables) but Martin Colloms has just reviewed the newer, just below the top Transparent cables.

At only £16K for the cheapie set and £22K for the semi-serious cable I am just fooling myself

, especially when you realise the top cable was a little system dependent and did not always show a clean pair of heels to the cheapie.

What!!

:shock: of course it doesn't include the mains cables, these are speciality cables and are therefore a shade more expensive than those from Maplins.

Not bothered what you use mate butnotice how you suddenly react when someone mentions something that you're using.... yet you implied that george should be shot for spending a grand on cables.... :dude:

A grand doesn't seem ridiculous.
