WTB MIT Shotgun Speaker Cables

Ok. Time to upgrade my speaker cables. Right now I have homebrew set 10ga speaker cable (generic) with soldered ends, heatshrink tubing applied, and metal jacketed banana plugs at all ends.

To all you cable enablers out there, I'm gonna take the plunge. Everything I've read on CP and other sites rave about the MIT Shotguns. I'm looking for either banana or spade terminations. Bi-wire not required.

Help a CP Brother out!

FYI - Interesting video from MIT on their patented technology. What's in the box?

    It's a good price....I've seen better at around 200, but 250 is worthy. Considering what retail is....speaker cables, shotgun series, will be more. You might be able to find s3 speaker cables for around 400 used....add one set of IC's and your at 6-700.

    Just so the OP knows, doesn't get heart failure, or the wife divorces him.

    Here’s a blast from the past…

    http://forum.polkaudio.com/discussion/157221/mit-avt2-speaker-cable-8ft-plus-avt-xlr-ic-1-meter#latest

    These are very good cables, without the shotgun investment (certainly an upgrade from what you’re using now)

    I’m in 48098
    I don’t think you’re too far away??

    Happy listening!

    How do they compare to the Terminator 2's? I've been looking at those as a baby step forward.
