THX!, I will have to think about it.  Have you compared them to MIT Terminators? This is the most expensive interconnects I have ever purchased.

I will be comparing them to MIT, Purist Audio Design, Tara Labs, and Canary today.

Found them.  They look like high quality stuff!  But, I have always wondered why or how electrons know or care about direction thru a wire.  Any explanations out there?

With MIT, I could sort of see, that depending on what's in the box, direction could matter.

Thanks Tom, I'm glad you like them so far.
Just to help everyone understand the "directional" design of the wires...

Directional wires have an additional shield  inside of them...
that is grounded at one end only, to help reduce any outside interference.

Directional wires are supposed to be connected with the "grounded" end being connected to the "source"
So you would connect the grounded end to your CD player output..  the next set, you'd connect the grounded end to the amp output, and so on.

Here are a couple close up photos of them as well.

The verdict is in.  They are great cables. I compared them with everything good+ I have stashed away. Kimber,MIT,Tara Labs, and Purist Audio Design. They passed with flying colors.  ;D

I took a look at these over at Tom's shop today.  These things are solid.  The construction of them is VERY good.  Especially the connectors.   :o  They are very high build quality.
