ProWire  "A Higher Class of Interconnect" mono intercnect cable, 3m good for subwoofer. R100.00

Looks well enough made,priced at less money than the connectors would cost.

I think this was a Vivanco Brand.

Cable Talk Monitor 2 RCA Interconnect 1m Pair R350.00

A firm favourite of Wat HiFi and HiFi Choice in the 90s winning many awards and group tests when affordable quality stereo was at its peak.

The plugs are worth more than the asking price.  Talk Electronics / Edwards Audio is abut to re launch these by the way at about R1500.00 a pair.

I have 2 pairs availabe.

Cable Talk Concert 4 Bi Wire Speaker cable 3m pair, 2 monster spades on the amp side and 4 gold plate bananas on the speaker side.


This was Cable Talks best offeing on speker cable in the 90s. They won award aer award for their goobut affordable cabe.

This is aheavy gauge wire. About 2.5 mm per core I would say.

R1000.00 takes the pair with connectors. A gift really.

Belkin Quad Shielded Silver Series Digital Audio Interconnect cable (75 ohm)  2.2m approx (8ft I guess) R175.00

Looks very sexy and I would think a good cable as Belkin churns them out at high volume so low cost of manufacture for materials used.  nice split Pin RCA plug. Moulded though else I would make 2 shorter cabes.  Which is still possible.
