The most I ever paid for cable was 12/m for 8x4mm^2 because it is convenient for my active speakers as I keep the amps in a rack.

But then this ebay cable is already 'burnt in' so there is an additional saving there! ;-)


A fool and his money etc comes to mind.

These cables are like the special Soviet smokey glass cryogenic treated NOS but burnt in tubes available today on eBay, or any Western Electric 300B.
