Legendary Monitor/Polk Audio Cobra Litz speaker cable

Post by timurmusicfan on Sun Nov 06, 2016 10:16 pm

Vintage Polk Audio Cobra/Monitor Audio Flat speaker cables. The first, and one of the best high end speaker cables. Made in Japan.
New Old Stock (NOS) from UK.
Famous: One of the only two Class A speaker cables according to Art Salvatore High End column. He claims that this cable (round version with 6 parallel runs) is better in his set-up than most high end cables including USD15K Kimber cables! Read positive reviews on the net.
website: http://www.high-endaudio.com/rec.html Read reference components.
Note: This cable is highly recommended for SET amplifier fans.
Infamous: Amplifier-killer. Can destroy your (poor designed vintage) amplifier (or your modern Naim) due to abnormally high capacitance. Be warned. Some reviewers says that this cable is just hype.

My own evaluation: A single run is better than my other cables (Kimber Kabel 8TC, QED Silver Anniversary, Norstone & JKR cables). And this is with SS gear (Accuphase, Linn and SAE amplifiers), not glowing glass bottles. Please note that these are not sweet, warm cables. They are fast, transparent and detailed. The weakness of a single run is the Bass. Parallel runs supposed to improve bass. I have not tried parallel runs (happy with my single run for now)
And even my better half (who thinks I spend too much time fiddling with cables) thinks this cable is better (more 'real' in her words).
Reason for sale: After testing one set, I bought the entire stock from UK seller to save on shipping.
The original cables are in 25 feet pairs with factory original soldered wire terminations. Price for one pair of 25 feet pair in original factory packing in RM2400 firm (free shipping within Malaysia and Singapore. Can arrange delivery in KL or JB).
Caution: Runs of more than 16 feet is discouraged. Shorter the better. Terminations of these cables are difficult and pain-staking and is only for hard-core DIYer).
Option 2: A pair of 8ft parallel with rhodium banana/Gold plated Z plug/ bare wire termination: Price: RM1000
If you are interested in other lengths or want a taste of real high end (parallel runs) please contact me.
Please whatsapp 016 nine tw0 tw0 786o for pictures and more information.
Thank you.
