I'm moving in another direction for my downstairs setup so I have some Kimber Kable items I'm looking to move along. Prices are WITHOUT shipping. I ship insured for full purchase price, with signature required. For purchasing via paypal add 3%. Offers should be sent via PM.

For sale are 3 USED Kimber Kable 8VS internally bi-wired speaker cables. This means there are 2 connectors at the amp end, and 4 at the speaker end. I have is a single pair of 6 feet cables used for my Left and Right speaker. The single is a 5 foot cable I used for my center channel. All speaker cables are internally bi-wired and are terminated at both ends with Kimber’s SBan factory connector. I would prefer to sell as a package. This would be a great starter set for your Left/Right/Center speakers. They were purchased through NeedleDoctor, an authorized dealer.

Pair of 6 foot cables (2 total speaker cables): Asking: 220 - if I can find the packaging its included
Single 5 foot cable: Asking: 90 - have package

Manufacture info is below:

    Awesome speaker cables, I have the 4pr, 8pr 8vs( as listed) and 8tc, 8tc double bi wire. Kimber is probably hands down one of the very very best speaker cables in the business, if you never had them and your into audio then you should have these. They have a way of allowing the music to flow and make your system sound the best it can be. Not many speaker cables I have heard or used sound much if any better at the retail asking prices of the twisted pairs from Kimber.
    If I needed these I would buy them.

    My personal quest is to save to world of bad audio, one thread at a time.

    Great deal, the only difference between 8VS and 8TC is the insulation material (and obviously the color). Same topology, same copper, same connectors.

    So is it 6 or 5? Hahaha. Thought I would spam Enders since he beat me to the 8TC.

    Replaced my standard configuration 8TC's for a pair of bi-wire 8VS, and have NO regrets over the change---and my wallet is happier too. Just saying.

    If anyone is on the fence about these, let me know what it would take to tip you over.

    If your only interested in the pair of 6 footers... let me know as I am open to splitting them up.

    I'd prefer they go to someone here rather than be sold on eBay....

    I have nothing as audio setup anymore. Still interested in the pair. I hate low ballers and being low balled. Message me price for just pair and all three.

    Haha @Tony from Windy City.

    If Sooners win today I take price good ol Dan offered. He wanted $50 plus ice cream or something like that.

    If Sooners lose, I will pay the price publicly listed here.

    I will take them either way. Just something about Kimbers that are really special.

    Go whoever is playing the Sooners lol...

    I may have overplayed my hand in asking for a pallet of ice cream sandwiches...

    It's only a 7 point game and OU has the ball. Plenty of time left midway through the 3rd quarter.

    Congrats Dan! Every week. The Sooners D is playing against the Patriots. Haha. Well. At least they are first place in every category for having the worst defense in college football.

    I still win the Kimbers. Haha

    Pair of 6 foot Kimbers sold to Halen.

    Single 5 footer remains. Will likely start a new thread for it tomorrow
