Really depends on what you want, we also have cables in stock ready to ship. We shipped just over 150 orders out Tuesday, so backlog is clearing up. i sent out despatch emails to everyone who's cables shipped and will be doing this with every order from now on.

What cables do you have in stock at the moment?

Hi Guys,

 

Found this and thought it might be relevant to some questions i've seen around Burn in, i found it really interesting!

 

"As with all audio components, audio cables require an adjustment period. This is often mistakenly referred to as “break-in”. However, break-in is properly used to describe a mechanical change-engines break-in, loudspeaker and phono cartridge suspensions breakin. A cable’s performance takes time to optimize because of the way a dielectric behaves (the way the insulating material absorbs and releases energy), changes in the presence of a charge. Cables will continue to improve in sound or picture quality over a period of several weeks. This is the same reason amplifiers, preamplifiers and CD players also require an adjustment period. The key difference between “adjusting” and “breaking-in” is that things don’t “un-break-in”, however, electrical components do “unadjust”. Several weeks of disuse will return a cable to nearly its original state.

 

The run-in time is essentially the same for all cables. However, the apparent need for run-in varies wildly. As with amplifiers and other components, the better the cable, the less distortion it has, and therefore the less there is to cover up the obnoxious distortion caused by being new. Since human perception is more aware of the existence of a distortion than the quantity, the better the cable, the worse in some ways it will sound when new, because the anemic forced two-dimensional effect reulting from being new will not be ameliorated by other gentler distortions. Please be patient when first listening to any superior product." - Audio quests Cable Theory

I placed an order on the 15th April for a cable that I understood to be in-stock (i.e. the "Availability" figure was in double figures).

 

Nothing has turned up (despite my order showing as "Completed") and after sending an email last week querying this I was referred to your front page where it states there is an 8 week wait time for cables.

 

This is a dishonest way to do business and I am not happy with this response.  If your cables aren't assembled and ready to be shipped you have no right to display "Availability" numbers that are meaningless.

 

Please be honest with your customers!
