    In Russ Andrews' latest catalogue they mention a Black Pearl speaker cable that's so expensive they don't even bother putting a price! (As a guideline, 11 foot of the most expensive cable they have in the catalogue is £8425!!!!! :eek: )

    I'm not intending to buy the cable, but I'm curious to know how much it costs.

    Does anyone on the forum know?

    I guess its all relative, if you are buying a £30k hi-fi then it might be in order. But then again, the phrase "More money than sense" comes to mind.

    Actually Russ recently loaned me a pair on a 60 day home trial - thinking of keeping them as they work a treat with my Yamaha mini system (I have never heard it sound so good).
    :D

    Black Pearl Model 88 is $15,000 for an 8 foot pair in the states. Russ probably charges £15,000 over here due to tax/duty/his cut...

    Yeah - Hifi News recently reviewed the Siltech Signature line, which is £30,000 for an 8 foot pair (or thereabouts).

    It's a proprietary gold/silver alloy, and I think that pretty much defines the term 'silly money'.
