If he sells them direct, at a fair price, with a trial period, and makes them available for bake-offs...then I wish him well.
I’m all for that SP, but they’d have more credibility if they were to not only have the odd failure (rather than gaining an improvement from each of these “new” discovery cables) or if somebody different had an opinion, rather than the same old names spouting the same old tedious cobblers. :bulls1:

As for fair objective bake offs ever appearing on AOS, shill is the only way anything like this gets a foothold there and Jabba the Gutt is more than happy to accommodate them :snooty:

AOS is the back-slapping forum. They would rather be chummy than truthful. That is my 'charitable' assessment.

He would learn more by loaning them to members here. I'd be happy to include them in a bake-off.

He is still a member here AFAIK...

I wonder if Jabba will be at the demand for blood money, sorry, trade account payment for Biggy’s new venture? He’s quick enough to publicly make the members there aware of an inbound PM to new members who appears to be selling, or will it be a similar arrangement to what Brains offers there? :naughty:

Roll up, roll up, form an orderly queue on the Art of Shill, grab’em whilst their hot and before the Scottish mafia snap them all up and they sell out. Mind you, still no mention of costs yet, so come on Biggy, what’s the damage for these world beating cables? Remember to factor in your £50 trade account fee, every little helps. Oh, and if you try and trade via PM on the chummy Art of Shill, don’t forget that Jabba can access them and keep tabs on what your up to :naughty:

The full price of these Spotfire cables is £180 for a 1m pair, but Oliver is such a nice fella he might well negotiate.

Can you tell me how a Night Watchman (security) thinks he knows how to design cables, or is it that if you piss enough out some may stick. Mr nice guy as you call him endeared himself really well to us by lying and spinning the Uddersfield bake-off, sadly he was found out.

Simple answer Doc is that he doesn't. What gets me is that these part timers manage to find cable and plug combinations that always seem to take their enjoyment to another level. Perhaps he should have called it Stratospheric, but where does he go from there? Biggy's Orbit cables anybody? :P

It also wouldn't surprise me if some of the sheep there are so shit scared to comment in public that one of these homebrew lash-up cables are worse than what they already have, but the spectre of Il Duce and the friendly forum shooting them down in flames looms large. Chummy rather than truthful indeed SP, many a true word spoken in jest :clap:

Objective comments on products which are part of these chummy shills are strictly prohibited. I was banned for referring to the Phono stage bake off where the open all hours did not come off too well.
