They appear to be a good value. I like cables with the silver coated copper and the Teflon insulation.
They do have the full gambit...interconnects, speaker and power cables.
Would like to hear from any inmates who have experience with any of his products.
In my system the Mark Tunis Silver Ghost ICs preformed excellently, and in fact replaced my earlier more expensive ICs......., here I'm talking about an Acoustic Zen Silver Reference as well as a pair of CRL Bronze within all of 3 tracks.
Once again in " my system " is has remained and I don't feel a need to explore to many more options to to what I feel matches the collective whole as it relates to synergy, as well as an absolute beauty of note and nuances presented in a manner that merely sounds | feels right.
Yet as Mick has mentioned as much as I love this cable, I haven't been pushing them of late because I've asked Mark why he doesn't allow for a demo period, and he mentioned so crap about having to double their cost!, in which I felt was a bunch of BS, especially taking into account you've a few options of sellers when it comes to this NASA | Aerospace graded silver plated copper if you were to simply put silver ICs into an eBay search.
On the pure silver side of cabling........, I'm very taken with the Albedo line, and while I'm only now getting around to sampling their USB cable......., I can say it's a keeper.
I tried the Silver Ghost IC and it didn't work for me. A little thin and bleached in my system. Also, unless his policy has changed, he doesn't offer an audition period. You buy it, you own it and in my case, I sold it.....for about 60% of what I paid for it. I took a chance and lost, but learned an important lesson. I think it's a red flag when an audition period isn't offered.

That has been my experience with silver clad copper.
I find pure silver much smoother sounding.
I wish Mark Tunis would advertise his wares more honestly. He calls many of his products Silver ___, when in fact, none of his stuff is pure silver.
On silver clad copper, I've had a good experience with Morrow IC's. My current MA 5 IC( with Eichmann's) is a well balanced cable with a nice open/ lifelike presentation. The Tunis was thin and fatiguing by comparison. And of course as a special bonus, no audition period with a return option.
You might approach the ELF cables.
I like the Super Silver Helix (silver-plated copper) and his ALL silver prototype was also extremely good-very balanced through out its' range.Helix 1M:$100,not sure where he priced the silver IC.
Does offer a return policy.
Tom.....after recently discovering the TEO Game Changer, myself and a few of my audio buddies are done exploring the IC frontier for the foreseeable future. Just a superb IC that lets me kick back and simply enjoy the music a little more than I'd previously experienced.
Good to hear/see, Mick.
I just purchased the 1.5 meter TEO Game Changer last evening. I hope to report back, once I receive it and find the proper place for it.
I use the TEO IC between pre amp and amp. Feel free to experiment with location and report back. Not sure it's suitable for anything phono related though....not sure if it's shielded.
