Up for sale is an Audioquest Carbon Digital Coaxial cable in the ideal 1.5m length.

Comes with original box and everything that was included like ziplock bag, desiccant pack, barrel and tip protectors, etc. Purchased from an authorized Audioquest dealer (The Cable Company).

Full disclosure, I used this cable once and upon disconnecting one of the ends, I noticed that the silver coating on the shaft was slightly marred in two areas. I've tried to illustrate this here, but it was hard to photograph:

It's a very minor imperfection on the surface of one of the tips, where it seems that the soft silver plating has been scratched/gouged by the harder steel inside the RCA jack. Just figured it's worth mentioning, as I aim for no surprises with the condition of things I sell.

These retail for $221.95 in this length, asking a Polkie Price (100+ posts, longstanding member, etc) of $100 shipped.

Thanks for looking.

    Hey Dave, I did review this cable against two other digital coaxial cables, but informally and for my own information/experience. I never did get around to writing a review about my experience.

    That's a nice looking cable at a really good price. The fact is, it generally takes a lot longer to sell on the forum than it used to (of course there are exceptions). The membership has really shrank every since vanilla, and we never fully recovered...

    Question Drew: Does it have the DBS?

    No, the Carbon line of cables do not come with the DBS pack from AQ.
