I received it as part of a package at an estate sale. There is no indication anywhere on the cable of the name or manufacturer. Just curious what I have. Hoping someone knows.
Unfortunately, there are many, many counterfiet cables in the marketplace.
It came in different colors, similar to yours, not identical.
I guess they could be some Japanese or Chinese knockoffs.
A little background:
They were part of a system that connected a Meridian 588 CD player to an Audio Research LS25 mkii then to a pair of Yamaha MX-1's which were bi-amped to a set of B&W Matrix 801 S3 using Audioquest Audiotruth Midnight 3 Hyperlitz speaker cables.
My initial thought was Audioquest since that is what the speaker cables were. And the system was made up of quality components which leads me to believe they are actually something fairly decent.
The rca connectors are unlike what AudioQuest has used to terminate their interconnect cables with.
every connector it was attached to...!
Those damn Monster turbine RCA where stuff as Hell, and sometimes tore the female RCA apart.
...it sort of comes naturally to me...
but, is there only the one, or was there another that came with it?
One pair interconnects with all for barrels missing.
It might be a digital cable.
I'm curious to see a better image of the rca connectors, including the soldered wires inside of the connectors. Perhaps you can post some more photos...
I can't identify the make of the cable, but it appears the rca connectors are a locking barrel type, but the barrels are missing from the connectors.
You are correct Sir. Thus I cannot identify the make or model of cable. I'm assuming the name was on the missing barrels.
Thanks for your reply.
It looks similar to a Harmonic Technology or Acoustic Zen interconnect, but it isn't. It could be a Chinese product.
I have some supposedly Tara Labs I bought off EBay that comes with those scrappy locking RCAs. I just use them with out the barrels.
