Mains Cables R Us exhibited at the Audio World Show in Manchester. Organized by The Chester Group who also hold the excellent Whittlebury Show every year in September, Audio World is smaller in comparison with less than 30 rooms. We do however expect it to be larger next year as we class it as a success based upon the number of visitors we saw in our room despite the bad weather. Our room had a steady stream of audiophiles throughout both days, many of whom had braved the weather to support the hifi industry and it’s dealers. The trade were also in [...]

I have a rather enormous box full of cables from Black Rhodium that are ex-demo or ones sent back for longer lengths, changed mind etc etc. All cables are in “as new” condition with full warranty (2 years) and are offered with substantial discounts off the list price which is in brackets next to each cable. I don’t have time to put pictures up but if anyone is interested in a cable they cannot find details on then e-mail me for a picture. All cables are factory terminated by Black Rhodium using their own connectors and plugs. There is only [...]
I received my stock of all 4 ifI audio products a few weeks ago and took them to the Bristol hifi show to see what all the fuss was about. To be honest the boxes look a million dollars and the units themselves are immaculately presented. I did not read any reviews prior to taking delivery but simply bought them on the say so of Select Audio the distributer (I already sell AMR fuses and AMR had a hand in the design of the iFI range). To cut a long story short I have never found a headphone [...]
Not only have IsoTek re-defined what is possible from a budget mains cable (the premier) they now turn their attention to further up in the product range where increased funds allow far greater performance due to increased specifications. The EVO3 Elite power cable is the result of many years research into what constitutes a good power lead. Made using IsoTek’s new pure copper and gold plated IEC connectors (3 versions are available) and the Furutech FI-1363 gold plated UK mains plug. The EVO3 Elite unlike the premier is available in custom lengths starting at 2 metres as standard, longer lengths as [...]

Waveform is the new class of semi-active digital RCAs from Tellurium Q® (patent applied for in UK, number:1223346.6) coming from many months of research. The new device contains a bi-directional, high speed, non-avalanching voltage clamp, controlling the peak voltages into your DAC. This clever technology is contained on two little circuit boards encased in anti-micro-phonic material, one in each RCA plug. The key attributes are: 1. Rise and fall edges are faster than ordinary non-waveformtm digital cables giving the most accurate signal possible today. 2. Produces a more symmetrical waveform which reduces over sampling errors where that method is used. 3. Spdif/BNC to RCA phono drive now will vastly reduce dropout [...]
MCRU will again be exhibiting at the Sound + Vision Show, Bristol 22-25th of February supporting some of the world’s leading brands including IsoTek Systems, Furutech, Oyaide, Black Rhodium Cables, Tellurium Q and many others. Sound + Vision is the UK’s biggest Hi-Fi show and a must for all audiophiles. One debate that has raged for decades amongst the hi-fi fraternity is the subject of “cables”. Are they audio jewelry making no difference to the sound or are they an essential accessories that can transform a hi-fi system to a higher level of sound quality? The MCRU “I am a believer” [...]
