    Looking through my good ole Russ Andrews booklet, it says about technology used in the "Black Pearl" cable.....question is a) do they still sell it b) how much? (i know, if you need to ask...). Looked on the net, and only found one comment from one bloke that thinks its the dogs bits, but again says nothing of the price! anyone? (I'm obviously on the look out for a pair or 3)

    There are several references on the Andrews site to black pearl. None of them look cheap. www.russandrews.com

    I would love to know how many world wide sales of a £14K cable Kimber sell each year. If you buy some, can I borrow it........

    Each one was faulty, it seems that engineers are not keen to fix things but would rather replace. I think I have had most of the recommended TV's out there (Panasonic PD30, Sony DL10, Loewe Aconda etc) but I am very happy with my new Toshiba.

    Most of the TVs were bought from Comet, who were great to deal with, 2 were bought from a specialist who were are nightmare.
