    Nightfall, I dug them up off the city's power grid. Saved me a bundle. ;)

    Looks good for about 100w... I recommend doubling up.

    Wow! Just the thought of terminating that gives me nightmares.....

    Use a high quality IEC for best results.
  • Could I bi-amp my speakers with that and is it 99% oxegenated copper ?

    Burn the rubber off, scrap the copper. That's what I used to do. A shopping cart works great, go steal one. Rubber falls through, leaving the copper in the cart. Just a tip from your uncle Tony.

    The white stuff in the middle has a peculiar resemblance to something you might see from Patrick82 from Coo-Coonut Audio...

    Maybe one of his creations?

    That first sentence is ripe for the picking @ken brydson. Have at it! :D
