Interconnects, speaker wire, power cords. Ask the Cable Guys.

RE: Anybody have any experience with Furutech FT-111 RCA's?

I'm going to play around with this gold wire that's been sitting in a box for the past 15 years. Don't remember who I bought it from, and don't remember much about it, other than it's a 24k gold and silver alloy. I have a vague memory that it was pretty expensive too. Calipers show it at .025", so roughly 22 gauge. Biggest problem is if the cables come out sounding really good I won't know where to get more of the same wire. :)

Gold is obviously questionable as the best wire for this purpose, but my favorite factory interconnects right now are the Stealth PGS (antiques in their lineup) which use a very small gauge gold conductor, around 40 gauge IIRC. Probably won't get very close to duplicating them, but I have no desire to duplicate the expenditure on another pair of PGS either...
