Haha...

It looks like they'll be ready in the next couple of weeks or so. However, the timing on my side isn't great as I'll be travelling for work when they're completed. So realistically, it'll be mid June before I have them here and all up and running.

But someone in the US should have his well before then. Not sure who it is, or whether they even post here. But there may be a 'review' out before mine.

I recently discovered some cables with a capacitance as low as 47pF/m. The cables are hand made by order and this is what the technician who build them told me when I asked him about the capacitance of this cables (this is a translation, sorry if there is some technical fault):

"The previous version had a Star Quad (4 twisted conductors) geometry with a common braided shield. The new one is a miniaturized version of the above: same metal, same insulation, same cotton filling, but being thinner I can use two separate conductors per channel, each with their own shield and each with positive and negative signal in braiding pair. By reducing the size I can use an additional wire for connecting the grounds, and thus the shielding of each tube is connected only at the end of the destination (male connector), and so the only effective capacitance is the one  which occurs between the stranded conductors: 47pF/m, unlike the previous cable that´s about 50pF/m between conductors and 100pF/m between conductors and shield."

This cables are the most neutral and clean I ever had. I compared this cables with the AntiCables and found the AntiCables adding some kind of brilliance, same as Mani said. As a plus they are cheap. Now all my cables are made by this guy including the power cable for the NOS1 with an L shape connector which make it easier to route the interconnection cables without touching the power cord.

If anyone is interested in this cables PM to juanpmar@gmail.com. I´ll be glad to help.

Regards,
Juan

I use these cables for some months now and I only can concur with Juan, these are very neutral cables. Compared to my other cables (cryo, silver, etc) these cables do everything so much better, that I really forgot them  Happy.

Apart from the SQ, these cables are robustly build and have a more than reasonable price).

So in anticipation to the NOS1a, don't forget these cables.

Thanks Juan.

Regards,
Stanley

Yep Stanley, I'm really happy with my cables too. Are they the best cables available? Dunno. If I suddenly became a billionaire tomorrow, I'd probably order a 10m pair of Tellurium Black Diamond balanced interconnects. But until that happens, at something like 1/50th of the cost of the Telluriums, the cables Juan had made up for me are staying. I simply cannot fault their sound.

I'd highly recommend anyone looking for very high value-for-money new cables to drop Juan a line.

Hi Stanley and Mani. Thanks so much. I'm glad that the cables are working so well in your systems.

Kind regards,
Juan
