You're just determined to spend excess money, aren't you?

I have some Nextgen 0705 sets. if you really need WBT, I'll give it for a fair price. MSRP is 320USD for a set of 4: link. so you'll have nextgen for topline price

1 - about nextgen i have the doubt that are no robust insted of btass structure
2 - why you sell them ?

0705 is made of 99.996% pure oxygen free copper. then Gold plated
I bought them some years ago (2009), I've used some in some DIY projects. now some are remaining with no use.

Both actually work no better than the buck-50's from Radio shack. You are buying for bling and bragging rights. Pick the one that strokes your ego the most.

Gee, if they had not tired to make oxygen free copper, they could have gotten 6 9's out of it. Oxygen is used in copper to remove impurities. Totally irrelevant, but that is how it is made.

Let the flames begin.....

No flaming from me since I agree.

$320 for binding posts is about $310 more than I'm prepared to spend.

As for oxygen free copper: It does conduct better than standard copper. If the conductivity of standard copper is taken as 100% oxygen free copper can reach a staggering 101%!!!

Yea, and that .000001 Ohm difference in the copper makes a big difference when they are nickle and gold plated, soldered with tin-lead-silver (and not in an inert environment) Of course, just touching a binding post is probably enough to cause the resistance to rise more than that last "9" of purity. I know, we need heat sinks and fans for our binding posts just like CPU's!

The problem here we are trying to help folks with is that there is a big difference between empirical physics and engineering. Let's let NIST worry about international standards and if the gram has actually evaporated enough to measure. I'll stick with my nickel over brass terminal blocks so I can afford better tweeters. We have a tremendous way to go before speakers catch up with he rest of the chain, so let's work on the parts that matter. I could provide a list if anyone were ambitious or looking for a thesis project.

I think WBT is from before the internet was invented
might explain the prices
at the time it was probably very expencive to construct this kind of special stuff, and market it

time have changed a lot since then
but some older companies have a hard time keeping up with the new and cheaper internet market
they are founded on a different 'strategy'

there is no substance or compound with 100% of conductivity!! (absolute 100?!... mmh nothing is absolute)
