    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.

    PLEASE NOTE: This Audioquest FLX/SLiP 14/4 single wire cable is also available in a BIWIRE configuration - CLICK HERE.

    This cable can be used as both single wire and biwire. All you need to do if you wish to use it as single wire cable is take two of the colours and twist the conductors together and insert into one plug or one binding post. Make sure you use the same two colours at the other end too. We recommend you do the following:

    RED & WHITE together for RED terminals
    BLACK and GREEN together for BLACK terminals.

    This is actually better than using a single wire cable as you are getting double the bandwidth which means more details through your speakers and a broader sound stage.

    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.

    These are absolutely fantastic speaker cables. I use them to connect my Mission Bronze 2 speaks with the Cambridge CXA60 amplifier. I feel/hear a very noticeable improvement in the audio quality in comparison to the cheap cables I used earlier. The build quality is top notch, and they are as thick as a pencil. Furthermore the quality of work of FutureShop folk who fixed the banana plugs at each is very good. I also opted for 48-hours of burn-in which they provide free of charge. Highly recommended speaker cables for any audiophile.

    I have used cheap no name cables earlier and I wanted to have better cables. After reading about this cable I thought this is good cable to be my first hifi speaker cable. I liked it very much that I can buy these cables made ready for my needs by professionals. I was very surprised how much difference it when I changed cables. Sound is much richer and has more bass than supermarket cables. I didn't believe cables can make this big difference.

    These are excellent cables for the price compared to some of the more well known brand names. I have no hesitation in recommending them if you are stepping up from the bundled cables that come with a lot of audio equipment. Much improved sound and delivery to France took 4 days.

    Purchased to replace very old QED silver cable because high frequencies sounded shrill through my KEF T101 wall speakers. Shrill frequencies still there on some CD's. Maybe this is the combination of amp and speakers. However choral music now sounds much better - the harsh muddled sound of the choir, on what I thought was a poor recording, now sounds like voices. Violin techniques sound more obvious and there is far more emotion in classical music. Basically, it sounds more real. So, on the whole, a fair outcome. Strangely even the bass sounds better - bearing in mind there is nothing below 100hz going down the new cable from my Marantz M-CR610. I guess it is the harmonics helping my BK subwoofer sound better. Cable well prepared by Futureshop with neatly fitted banana plugs. Good value and received very quickly.

    The Audioquest FLX 14/4 is a fantastic cable. It is well tonally balanced. If you like a warm or smooth sound, this is the cable to buy. Those who have problems with harsh or hyper-excitable trebles, try this cable and I promise you it will sort your problems. I have had many cables in the past including the ones costing many times more than the Audioquest FLX 14/4,but for the sound that I like this betters them all. This is one of bargains in Hi-fi today. Before spending a lot of money on expensive cables, please try this cable first. Thank you Audioquest

    This is a very fine and natural cable. I compared to qed xt400, chord rumour 2 and very expensive rma audio silver, kimber kable t12 and fadel art silver. My complete equipment is from audio note and very straight, without compromises. This audioquest flx/slip 14/4 cables sounds really well. Detailed and harmonic, clear but not harsh! I stay with this simple cable and sold the other cables. First i tried bi-wiring with two complete cables for each speaker, but it sounds better with single-wiring.

    I'm not well informed/in the know about the cable market now a days. Used to work as a hifi ousher, but that's a long time ago. Still.. These Audioquest cables strike me as really damn good for the money. For the price they are "quiet", have a great tone and musicality. Based on whatever little knowledge i have left, i whole heartedly agree witrh What HiFi. Damn good cable for very little money. Futureshop as a company: On the the cables i bought wasn't terminated right (out of phase). Shit happens, errare humanum est. When i contacted them about it, thinking they'll send me a couple of new spades so i could redo it, they asked me to send the cable back to them, at their expense, and i got the cable - now in phase - a week after sending it! (i live in Denmark, så well done:). You can't do better than that. Major thumbs up to FutureShop! Will be back, for sure.

    Hello. This is my 2nd speaker cable upgrade and although the 1st is also rich in detail, this AudioQuest is far, far superior in musicality, revealing every nuance from Marantz/B&W, especially with Classical music: warm, well-defined bass lines and a clear and pleasing treble. Recommended, as service and delivery from FutureShop are: always impeccable and prestissimo. Thank you very much, José Luiz Carísio, 19 September 2013 - Araguari/MG, Brasil

    People, are you connecting this cable in single wire or bi wire??? I receive mine this week , and i think Audioquest recommend this: RED & GREEN together for RED terminals BLACK and WHITE together for BLACK terminals. This is actually better than using a single wire cable as you are getting double the bandwidth which means more details through your speakers and a broader sound stage. So we have better sound in single wire that bi wire, yes??? Even so, this cable have a fantastic sound :) Thanks in advance....

    Boy do these cables make a difference! I have a KEF KHT3005SE home theater and the fronts and center where hooked up via Chord Leyline cables, sounding a bit harsh at the top. Enter the AudioQuest FLX and the difference is tangible, even for skeptic me. The sound is breathtakingly smooth, round and detailed, with rich bass and clear yet refined top, especially so when listening to stereo using only the two very capable satellites of the system. FutureShop was a perfect 10 out of 10, and I will wholeheartedly recommend anyone from outside the UK to order from them (as I'm also from abroad). The shipping is swift, the product is the real deal and the people are a delight to talk to on the phone. Thanks!
