Update on Bi-Wire/Bi-Amp Cables - Shattered is an Understatement...

After finally receiving the cable required for making Bi-Wires, we were shattered to strip the wire back and find it to be tinned copper, not 100% copper. 

We have contacted the manufacturer and will await a response. We signed off on a 'plain copper' spec sheet, not this...

Does tinned copper make an audible difference? Honestly, probably not! Tinned copper is less conductive/more resistant vs plain copper when using the same gauge but over the distances we use and the thin layer of tin used, it likely wouldn't make an audible difference. But it's just still not right. It doesn't align with our other cables and we can't help but feel we're falling short by offering it.

Unfortunately, this means Bi-Wire/Bi-Amp cables won't be available any time soon. We will do our best to keep you all in the loop and fingers crossed we can get our hands on something suitable in the near future.
