That was my question to, I just bit my tongue, as I really don't feel like being flamed, but as the old saying goes Curiosity killed the cat.

First and foremost, a safely constructed cord, and UL listing.

Wow! I am shocked by how a well respected Member of the Trade is acting in this thread. Is this Head-fi or kindergarten?

In addition, are you saying that the free cables were inferior to the cable with the same name that you sell for money?

Hmm... this does raise a concern, do we know of any "audiophile" or "custom" cables that actually have UL listings?
post #82 of 772
Well....

... I hope this thread doesn't hurt the resale value of my free Testament 2.0 if I happen to go down that route.

But I don't know I will though. Even if it's made of a garden hose, it manages to sound better somehow and isn't that all that matters?

As far as I am aware my Ironlong cable is ( Quail is the actual manufacture)

I think a moderator needs to get involved here. If this guy was giving away inferior cables as a giveaway like he says, they might be fire hazards. Does anyone have a list of who got the giveaway cables? They should be contacted so they can unplug the damn things until it gets sorted out.

Edit: I just dropped a line to the mods.

Indeed. Something tells me "I told you so" just doesn't cut it here. The lies, the deceit, the immaturity...

I've got a Quail power cord from the group buy a while back and I have an Iron Lung as well, both UL and CSA approved.

I was actually more interested in the custom built ones, something like ALO Audio, Moon Audio, the custom ones. I would certainly guess that the wire itself is spec'd above what it needs to do, but once you custom build it, it's another story. In this case, I don't think that any actually custom built ones actually get certified.

Yea thats the one thing thats kept me really from upgrading to a fancy boutique cable. Interconnects are one thing, but when it comes to Mains, I like to play it safe call me crazy

I just did a quick check on the giveaway thread. It says there were five cables given away. Were they all power cables? I am seriously concerned about the safety issue. Who were the five winners?
post #89 of 772
Would there still be safety concerns for the digital cables though since they don't really connect directly to electricity or anything? Or maybe they do... Hmmm I'll unplug mine before I go to bed...

I was picked for a free cable. I refused the offer once they asked me to pay $90USD shipping for the "free" cable.

Im glad I didn't go for it.
