UK is a wonderful country. Railway guides are experts in electronics, taxi drivers do brain surgery and birds singing on every tree.

PaulD is rather keen on Coherent 5d speaker cable. A bit silent when it comes to the price per metre. :lol:

It is just another shill and spam job. Mr C gives discount to those who promote him - so I am told.

He over does it though. Enthusiasm can be toooo much. Certainly wouldn’t raise my interest

Looks like the rest home for audiophiles has blown a fuse! As usual, The Cloak has the ongoing incident well covered ;)

Mucho amazement http://theaudiostandard.net/thread/4370 ... rent-audio and enlightenment. Not a salesman just pure enthusiasm for product. All at 90dB not the usual listening level.

I’ve won a lucky dip

Take four lengths of RS 56 strand cable - two red and two black... Plus a couple of lengths of the silver-mesh outer jacket material with neatly cut heat-shrink to neaten the ends up. Add four posh looking 4mm plugs and solder up. It would 'look' the same as that Coherent 5 stuff, but would it actually 'sound' worse? Nobody knows what's inside the Coherent cables, but I'm sure it's nothing outrageous really, as he wouldn't make enough money on it I reckon...

Before Naim introduced the A4 speaker cable (professional string-lighting stuff? I understand), we used drums and drums of first RS 42 strand (2.5mm) and then the 56 strand which is thicker and less easy to work with,especially if twisted as we used to do (in ignorance). Years since I used the stuff but the 56 strand was fine for general Top End use I remember...


If I went on there bigging up NVA and/or my own dealer pal, what do you think would happen? I've been all but bullied off most forums now and sometimes I get rather pissed off about it! Life's too short and I've work to do to care much these days , but still!
