Used for a few hours but now I have active speakers in the main rig it seems a waste to have these sitting around.

Two sets of four Gold Furutech FP-202G locking "piggyback" banana plugs with original boxes, and 2 x 5m Van Damme UP-LCOFC 6mm speaker cables, attached by the double screws rather than soldered. Typical rock solid Furutech construction for an excellent connection to Van Damme's largest diameter speaker cable. Heatshrink for identification has not been heated or shrunk!

The piggyback obviously allows for bi-wiring or general messin' about with cables. I was going to see if I could hear any difference between the 6mm pair, a separate 4mm pair and the two piggybacked for a 10mm pair... but then went active.

FP-202G retail at £69/pair, Van Damme 6mm at £7/unterminated metre, so total new price £208. Will list on the 'bay at £150 in a few days time, looking for £140 inc shipping to a discerning wammer... as the plugs rarely come up used, all are in perfect nick and there is nothing to go wrong with the cables (well, unless you plug them in the wrong way round in which case the music sounds congested 🤔).

EDIT: As I realise folk may not want both, I'll sell the RRP £138 plugs separately for £100 £80 shipped and the £70 speaker cable separately for £50 £40 shipped, both together for £140 shipped. Those is Wam prices right there, those is.

If not sold here in next 48 hours I'll put them on the 'bay as a bundle for £160. Buy now while stocks last!

Brilliant VFM cable and sound even better with the fancy plugs.

Yep, even the fat one is cheap compared with anything other than bellwire and it's properly engineered for those who care about/believe in cable design principles/folklore* (delete as applicable according to personal belief system!) with multi-stranded lightly twisted oxygen free copper.

Price drop, see opening post. Handover at Cranage would be ideal.

I'll take the cable please Nigel, and if the bundle price is updated to reflect the price drop (80+40-10 combined=£110 shipped) then I'll take the lot.

Had some fun with the new cables tonight. Get them out of the box, think these look like real quality cables and connectors. Tighten up the loose screws at the back then connect them to the speakers. Bugger they won't go in they're too big. Realise the screws I tightened are actually the the locks, unscrew them, put them in, screw again, tight fit won't come out now. Wow these are even better quality than I thought.

Sit down for some listening. Funny, not much bass for such chunky cables and they don't quite sound right. Take the links out, use my old cables for high and mid, new ones for bass. That sounds better but the bass is still a bit light. Port bungs out, getting there but not quite.

30 mins of listening, hmm a bit phasey maybe. Follow the marks along the cable, one end has red and white swapped around. Swap them over, lovely, all sounding right at last. Take out old cables again, replace wire links. All is good at last, worth it in the end :)
