We should make a list of all the companies trying to damage our industry credibility and the pockets of our hobby members. Trouble is it would be well over half the companies in the market - it is a serious pisstake going on.

MCRU sell Black Rhodium.

MCRU says he only sells stuff he believes in.

If MCRU is stocking lots of it and if the dealer terms are the same as in my day, then he makes a massive amount on each unit he sells. I'm not saying the stuff was bad, merely that the margins were very high and that the raw cable must be pennies a meter on a £75 interconnect for example at the margins I remember.

Is that 1.7m from entry to plug or 1.7m between inside plug termination points? - could make all the difference :think:

No, this is completely wrong! It should be 1.732M not 1.7 surely?

I'll leave you to work out the significance.

Didn't one of the US companies claim 1.9m was the magic number?
