  1. Very high quality power cable 1.2 metres long Voodoo Fire Dragon. Made in USA featuring massive 8 AWG heavy grade silver plated copper conductors this will work equally well on source equipment and amplifiers. Factory fitted uk plug. RRP $995 looking for £225. I bought this to compare against my Shunyata Python Zitron power cords and the results are very close for nowhere near the price of the Shunyata. Very transparent cable just lets more information through. Decided to keep my Shunyata which I had briefly for sale on here so this is up for grabs. Details here;- The Fire Powercord delivers refined harmonic resolution and vivid soundstage transparence throughout the entire dynamic range. The Fire Powercord is especially suitable for high-current power amps (200+ wpc) for an ultra-quiet background for vivid soundstage imaging and accurately controlled dynamics. When used with source components such as CD/SACD/DVD transports and DACs, the Fire renders the subtlest nuance of sonic detail and micro dynamics in the musical presentation. The Fire Power Cord is constructed with high-purity #8 AWG silver-plated copper conductors and terminated with the cryogenically treated gold-plated VooDoo PowerPhase IEC Connector and AC Plug. The conductors are wound in a proprietary geometric design for balanced inductance and capacitance. Each strand within the lay of the conductors is insulated with Teflon dielectric to suppress AC noise caused by micro-arcing within the individual strands of the conductors. For the purpose of suppressing electromagnetic interference, each conductor is insulated with Teflon dielectric and wrapped in a secondary dielectric jacket of polyethylene to shield against invasive EMI. The power cord body is sheathed with double layers of abrasion resistant mesh sleeve for maximum durability and optimal flexibility. All of the wire and connectors used to build the Fire Dragon are cryogenically treated in our custom cold fusion deep-immersion process at minus 315 degrees Fahrenheit to structurally align and fuse the metallurgical molecular structure of the conductive metals for optimal sonic performance. Available in lengths 3-10ft. Optional Connectors: PowerPhase Gold-Plated 20 Amp IEC Connector (120/240v) PowerPhase Gold-Plated Schuko AC Plug (240v) PowerPhase Gold-Plated Australian AC Plug (230v) British 13 Amp AC Plug (fused 240v)
  2. Thanks guys for the comments, now on ebay £100 starting bid.
  3. Hi Julian, If you are looking for vintage speakers for your nephew I have some KAR (Keswick Audio Research) Volante speakers for sale on here will compete with any £1000+ loudspeaker. Cheers, Paul.
  4. Bump. Ideal for second system, sumptuous mahogany wood finish.
  5. Still available. Just to reiterate these speakers replaced my Mission 753 back in the day, the Missions still fetch between £250 -£400 on ebay depending on condition. The Volante's offered so much more transparency and realism they really are a bargain at this crazy price!
  6. Shunyata Zitron Python Power cable AS NEW mint condition 1.75 metre length complete with all original packaging. These mega expensive power cables are capable of transforming your system to create a inky black background which provides much more detail and transparency so you can get the best performance out of each component you connect them to. I was using two connected to my Icon Audio MB90 monoblocks but have recently sold those on the wam and replaced with a Plinius SA103 Stereo power amp so one is now available for sale. RRP is 2495 euros / $2995 available for £895. The cable is terminated with a us 3-pin connector I have used a high end cryo treated US to UK adaptor which has a really tight fit which I will include in the sale. Shunyata Research is one of the the world's leading power cord manufacturers, the difference in sound quality when using one of their cords against a stock power cord is not subtle. I have tried lots over the years and to my ears Shunyata are the best. Lots of information on line but a great review here.... http://www.audiodrom.net/en/special-edition-reviews/60-shunyata-python-zi-tron
  7. Cannot believe these are still here, an absolute steal at the price! Beautifully uk made speakers in stunning mahogany wood finish.........all for the price of a cable !! New owner will not be disappointed.
