Cobalt Audio Speaker Cables

5 ft (locking banana terminations)

COBALT cables are 10AWG stranded copper. High quality locking banana termination. Well regarded cables. Chosen as the top performer in Audioholic no-hold-barred Speaker Cable shoot-out. The lowest inductance, top 2 for frequency response measurements and the best for build quality and looks, of all the cables tested in the shoot-out.
"The Cobalt Cables measured the lowest inductance out of all the cables in this comparison...
The Stealth Premier 2 and Cobalt cables had the highest performance in this comparison. However, special care must be taken to ensure closely spacing of the (+) and (-) conductors of the Stealth Premier 2 to achieve comparable performance to the Cobalt Cables...
From a build quality and cosmetics stand point, the Cobalt cables were our top preference...
With that in mind, our top three choices in order of preference were:

1. Cobalt Cables

Good sounding. Excellent built quality. Heavy (over 3 lbs). The locking bananas are well designed and easy to use. Used with some signs of usage. I have 2 pairs, keeping one pair.
