Van den Hul The Valley Interconnect Cable Sweepstakes

Register to win a pair of Van den Hul The Valley Interconnect Cables (MSRP $395) we are giving away.

These cables are distributed in North America by Bluebird Music and according to Van den Hul, The Valley interconnect cables are a twisted pair balanced cable with two 21 strand conductors and a double braided shield.

Van den Hul's new True Transmission Technology cables, known as 3T for short, "present an entirely new paradigm to the cable world offering breakthrough performance at very reasonable prices. The 3T wires are comprised of a fusion of five metals and one non-metal resulting in an amorphous alloy free from crystal boundaries. In fact, because the 3T wire is completely crystal free it is the purest wire possible. 3T wire completely eliminates signal bounce, or reflections, within the wire."

I would love to see if this cable improves upon the enjoyment I am getting from my system currently.

Would be my first pair of high end cables. Can't afford them otherwise. A DAC is higher on my list anyway.

I have been happily running a pair of the Van den Hul D102 MK 3 Hybrids for more than 10 years and coincidently I have been looking around for an upgrade.

When I got them delivered to the office I was the cause of much merriment and good natured ribbing from co-workers and even one of our couriers.

Even years later the courier would mention, with much good natured ribbing, my (in his eyes) foolishness at paying so much for the Van den Huls.....even if they were gold.

The idea that I would pay circa $150 AUD for a couple of bits of wire was just too much for them - they thought I was mad.  Of course they may well have been right, just not for the reasons they thought.

These days a figure like that is the height of protestant rectitude!

......would prefer XLR terminations though

After spending so mutch on  long grain coppers and single crystal ono cast coppers and silvers it would make an interesting comparison to a conductor without boundaries.

Oh, you meant this post. (Whew!)

I found a little interview on an Australian website with Siltech/Crystal Cable and they proclaimed that their next technolgy for conductors will be amorphous metal because it surpasses anything else. I guess they are only coppying another Dutch cable company.
