...count me in. Don't know if the discount would be worth it though. Shipping is somewhat expensive for a single cable, but you can't save that much on shipping and the $15 cables themselves.

...not really making sense. allnighter..s.uckin.me..inn.
but basically if anyone with a saintly disposition sends an inquiry to markertek for group buy discounts AND the cost for a 0.5m cable drops to $10 (from $13 without shipping and small order fee) and the 1m cable drops to $12 (from $16?), then this would be more feasible.

Very sorry if my wishy-washyness is off-putting.

im not doing a group buy, just wondering what happened to the group buy that was supposed to happen some time ago.

I dont think you'd save much money on a group buy but canadians would definitely save on customs if an american did a group buy for us

Step 1: Plug power cable into wall. Step 2: Plug other end of power cable into....umm.... Step 0.5: Order something to power with power cable.

I think they charge Canadians $15 U.S. shipping for one cable... thats why I got mine from a head-fier (cost him $1.50 to ship).


Biggie.

I don't want to start a "discussion"
I was thinking about ordering two .5 mini to mini from markertek.
The cataloge says it's $11.95 if you order five.
The bad thing is I'm in Hawaii, so I think it'll come air. For jlo it'll be cheaper, but for any one else in the US...
Uh....Piano? I'll gladly pay you today for some markerteks tomorrow?

I say you guys just bite the bullet. Break open that piggy bank, go to your rainy day fund, and drop that huge load of cash on that expensive piece of equipment that will noticably upgrade your system. whew!

Or, you can call Belden, get some 89259 samples (free) call canare and order the miniplugs. DIY and it would be less than $8.

I recall from somewhere that you need tools for the Canare tips. Like a solder. Which could be a hefty investment with time commitments up the wazoo. So I'm copping out on the DIY scene (that higher plane, that sublime state)....but I'm thinking others won't want to DIY either.

sorry jlo. sent things to canada a few times and paying global mail fees (cause I wasn't using first class) was very painful. and since I'm not getting a portable amp anymore, we wouldn't save on the small order fee if I combined orders. ...'cause I wouldn't have an order. ...right.
