    Over the past 25 years, AudioQuest has a well-earned reputation as a manufacturer of exceptional video and audio cables world-wide. AudioQuest's cable designs come from years of in-house research and careful engineering.

    Sometimes, pulling cable can be a real pain! AudioQuest's new FLX/SLiP series of in-wall speaker cables has been designed to make your life at least a little easier. While there is no perfectly slippery cable, we believe that the materials and shape used for FLX/SLiP are at the forefront, making these the most slippery cables possible.

    SEMI-SOLID CONCENTRIC PACKED CONDUCTORS: Semi-Solid Concentric Packed Conductors are used in some of AudioQuest’s AC power and speaker cables as a cost-effective, flexible alternative to typical stranded conductors. Semi-Solid Concentric Packed Conductors use fewer, larger strands that do not change position down the length of the cable. While solid conductors are the complete solution to strand distortion, Semi-Solid Concentric Packed Conductors avoid many of the distortion mechanisms of stranded conductors.

    "Product of the Year, Awards 2013. If you're looking for a cable that does finesse and subtlety just as well as dynamic heft and punch, this is it." PRODUCT OF THE YEAR & BEST SPEAKER CABLE, WHAT HIFI SOUND & VISION AWARDS 2012 AND WHAT-HIFI SOUND & VISION 5 STAR RATING OCTOBER 2013.

    "Who among us hasn't cursed a cable for being too sturdy to turn a tight corner in a kit rack? Well AudioQuest’s flexible (FLX) and easy-to-pull-through-walls (SLiP) wire makes that kind of thing a doddle. But how easy is it to listen to?

    A quick spin of Tortoise’s solid debut set – called Tortoise, imaginatively enough – and the 14/4 conveys a balanced, well-organised sound that never lets its rhythmic grip waver and renders leading edges with precision and grace."
    PRODUCT OF THE YEAR & BEST SPEAKER CABLE, WHAT HIFI SOUND & VISION AWARDS 2012 AND WHAT-HIFI SOUND & VISION 5 STAR RATING OCTOBER 2012.

    FREE CABLE BURN-IN SERVICE OPTION USING THE NORDOST VIDAR MACHINE WHEN YOU PURCHASE THIS CABLE FROM FUTURESHOP.CO.UK

    We are pleased to offer a free cable burn-in service for this cable when purchased through us. The Nordost VIDAR cable burn-in machine combines three different functions all in one operation:

    • It neutralises charges that build up around the cables and the insulation

    • It provides a very wide band and deep conditioning into the conductor core, which produces changes in the way signals pass through the metal.

    • It ultrasonically conditions the surface of the conductors.


    • The VIDAR uses a proprietary combination of composite and complex signals to condition the cables. Parts of the signal oscillate at ultra-low frequencies, while other parts are in ultra-high ranges which extend beyond the range of video frequencies. The signal bounces in a ping-ping ball-like fashion from one end of the cable to the other. During the burn-in process, ultra-low frequencies penetrate deep into the core of the cable. The ultra-high frequencies zip along the surface. This method of signal transmission a set up beat harmonics, or heterodynes, between the two complex waveforms. In the digital domain, this would be referred to as aliasing products. These beat frequencies penetrate all layers of the cable.

      The design of the circuitry also has a unique feature which drives electrons above the conductor into the dielectric (or insulation) area. The VIDAR not only sends ping pong signals along the cable, it also sends a similar signal from the centre core to the outer shield in the case of interconnect cables. This function neutralises the electrical charges discussed above.

      So what does that all mean to me?
      The end result of conditioning cables with the Nordost VIDAR is improved sound staging, increased detail, and an overall more musical presentation.

    Sounds great, but I really want to hijack this review to sing the praises of Future Shop's customer service. We had a lengthy email correspondence before I made my purchase and they couldn't have been more helpful, recommending a product suitable for my needs and answering the most minute (and potentially annoying) questions I posed. If you're a bit of a novice, like me, their expertise, clarity and patience is invaluable. I highly recommend you use this company, trusting their experience and knowledge to get you the right product. SUPERB!!!

    Speaker cable arrived very quickly with plugs neatly connected. Sound is good and an improvement on my previous QED cables. Communication from Futureshop was very good and I was kept well informed of progress regarding the delivery.

    Read some reviews on line and this cable seemed to offer a mix of great VFM and performance and so it has proved. I was updating my whole system but tried this on my old speakers and amp first, much more detail and clarity. Not the warmest but if you like detail I can't fault it. In my new set up it is just as impressive but some of that undoubtedly the new app speakers and source. One day I may be able to afford proper high end cables but until then this will do nicely. Bonus is it is well sheathed for if you are running through walls but even if not if looks tidy.

    The FLX/SLiP bi wire cable has breathed new life into my system. They made an immediate small improvement but this has increeased 10 fold since I completed 96hrs continuos burn in yesterday. I have a Roksan K3 CD, Roksan Kandy MK3 Amp and Monitor Audio RS Silver 6 floostanders. The specifics are: Improved definition /separation of instruments A better controlled , sharper less boomy bass that is still deep and enjoyable A smoother warmer high and mid range presentation More detail throughout This is a very impressive result for a budget cable - proving that the glowing "What Hi Fi " review is right on the money!

    Excellent - softened the somewhat bright/hard sound which I had with QED Silver Anniversary XT cable. The 14/4s allowed me to play the music louder and for longer without the sound becoming fatiguing. Maybe the clear detailed sound of the QED cable just made me aware of the deficiencies of my budget system (Marantz MCR610 receiver and Q Acoustics 1020i speakers)! Used the 14/4s in bi-wire mode as this is what Q Acoustics recommends for its speakers ("improves both bass performance and dynamic range") and also the four cable construction of the 14/4s lends itself to bi-wiring.

    Ordered on 5-11-2014 and arrived this morning before 10am. Haven't opened parcel yet as two amazing football games on this afternoon. As long as they are the bi wired spec I am a happy chappie. Safe and efficient checkout service but confirmation of the order had no mention of bi-wired but I sent an email to the support team and had confirmation within the hour that indeed what I had ordered were the bi-wired cables.

    Now im convinced that expensive speakercables not necessarily are the best.My Hi-Fi system now sounds better, especially the treble Is more clean witout any notice of harshness.Well the bass is less powerfull than before but the sound is much more well-balanced .The speakercables are suitable for a good bookshelf loudspeaker like Dynaudio Excite X16.
