  • Cable off the Reel
    All our cables are available in metre lengths, up to the full length of the reel (which is normally 50, 75 or 100 metres). When buying cable please bear in mind that some can be difficult to work with, and unless you have good-quality tools you could injure yourself. If in doubt, let us do the work for you for a nominal fee. Having terminated thousands of cables and re-worked hundreds more, we have the experience to ensure the finished article performs as well as it possibly can. We stock cables from Belden, Oyaide, Supra, Furutech, Black Rhodium and Furukawa (with the occasional Nordost and Neotech cable taken in part exchange).
  • Fuses
    The humble fuse is a bottleneck for mains voltage flow. Even the most expensive mains amplifier or power cord may be fitted with a 9p fuse; only there as an after thought because it is required under UK safety laws. Replacing the fuses inside your equipment and in your mains plugs will give your system an immediate and noticeable improvement in sound quality. Indeed, enhancements can often be so great that our customers have compared the effect to upgrading a component. HiFi Tuning, Furutech and Isoclean fuses are prerequisite for the serious audiophile.
  • IEC & Fig.8 Connectors
    A quality mains power lead will often come fitted with a cheap IEC connector. We know because we have seen first-hand that the big manufacturers often use the most basic terminations; a decision made on the economies of scale, not on sound quality. ALL our mains power leads are fitted with IEC connectors that are the BEST in class: we have not come across anything superior in our quest for the best-performing plugs and connectors. From £6.50 up to £350, we have an IEC to suit every need and budget. We stock connectors from Furutech, IeGo, Oyaide, Kaiser, Schurter, Supra and Wattgate.
  • Mains Plugs
    Mains Cables R Us probably stocks the most comprehensive range of mains plugs, for audiophile use, in the UK. After years of searching for top-performing, cost-effective plugs, we settled on a relatively small range that caters for every requirement. Standard brass plugs; silver, gold and rhodium-plated, as well as those able to accept cables up to 15mm diameter - we have a plug for everyone. The plating is carried out by a company with over 50 years experience, so our customers can rest assured that they receive a top-quality product at a competitive price. We also keep Schuko and USA (Nema) plugs in a variety of configurations, as well as stocking plugs from Furutech, Oyaide, IeGo, MK and Clipsal.
  • XLR & RCA Connectors
    Available for you to terminate your own interconnects; we stock only high-quality connectors from Oyaide, Furutech and Black Rhodium. Other brands can be obtained through special order.
  • Audiophile-Grade Solder
    Solder has to contain high levels of tin, which unfortunately is not a good conductor. We stock only the best solder available from Oyaide, WBT and Furutech, which improve soldered connections through maximising silver content whilst maintaining solder integrity.
  • Braided Sleeving for...
    Sometimes known as Techflex, a range of braided sleeving to protect cables and provide a pleasing aesthetic appearance. We stock popular sizes to fit over cables ranging from 5mm diameter to 15mm diameter.
  • DIY Mains Power Lead Sets

    A range of audiophile quality DIY mains lead sets for customers who prefer to construct their own cables using our connectors and wire. Please be aware you will need DIY skills to wire a mains lead together, if in doubt please consult a professional.

  • Heatshrink Sleeving

    A range of black heatshrink sleeving which is used when constructing DIY cables to seal the ends and provide strain relief.
