Purchasing information and Reel deal

This product is sold in units of 1 metre, up to a maximum length in 1 piece of 100 metres. Orders placed for a quantity of 100 units, or multiples of 100 units will be supplied on a reel; otherwise the cable will be supplied cut to length.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from not as high quality or nice looking as I expected. The cable I received had the same specification as the one on the website but looked different. As the way it looked is one of the reasons I chose this cable I was disappointed with that. I'm not sure that audio cables like this need to have quite such thick, tough insulation. It makes them hard to route and very difficult to strip without damaging the conductors. It performs well enough but just doesn't look as nice as the photo. I suspect they have changed the cable but not the description or the photo.

Capacitance is measured in Farads not Amps. So I repeat my question ... what is the capacitance of this cable?

Looking at your cable prices I can't find any reference to the lengths or whether it is per metre or per foot or what.
Asked by: Rod Ball
As stated in Technical Specifications: Sold by the meter
