Coppertone by Black Cat Cable Sweepstakes

Register to win a 1M pair of Coppertone RCA interconnects, a 1M Coppertone USB digital cable, and a 2.5M pair of Coppertone speaker cables (Total value $649.84) we are giving away.

According to the company:

Coppertone by Black Cat Cable distills a tremendous amount of high performance attributes into an affordable series of cables that punch far above their weight!

  • High-velocity, low-capacitance interconnects ensure the preservation of the low-voltage analog signal by suspending the conductor in air with our NAMI™ process
  • Low-inductance, low-skin-effect, low-proximity effect "tube-within-a-tube" speaker cables are structurally and electrically ideal
  • Noise-absorbing layers of our QuieTex™ shielding an outstanding feature of our Coppertone USB cable

As with all of our cables, Coppertone are part of Black Cat Cable's collection of cables that are manufactured in our Cumming, GA workshop by Chris Sommovigo personally! Our materials, our machines, our processes!

Love the name and the look - very nostalgic; reminds me of the old sunscreen add. And Black Cats are great cables as well.

danlu60's picture

have not bought any cables for quite some time, if they were as good as they said, I would like to try.

I love Chris and own some of the small run things he has done!

Chris is great and puts care into what he's doing.

I used to be on his mailing list.

Chris, if you read the replies, let us know how you are!

He makes good stuff, folks.

Maybe this will be an economical way for me to try out fancy cables to see if I can hear a difference between them and big box store interconnects and 14 gauge lamp wire.

One can never have too many audio cables and I'd love to give these a try.

Stevo9's picture

I need good cables. Mine are mostly DIY with silver plated hobby wire in 24ga. I have one pair of Audioquest Quartz (a lil bright). I want good ones to get the most of my system.

Enlightning stuff, new ideas over old problems.
Keep the good work, thanks!

I hope I win!

FredisDead's picture

I've been a repeat customer for many years. Has Chris moved back to the States from Japan or has production always been in the US? I would rather hear all the details in a nice profile piece in S'phile than win!

RafaPolit's picture

I have made more interesting and enlightened posts on other articles from Stereophile, but sure... I'd try some different cables in my systems for free any day! Sign me up.


RafaPolit's picture

Well, there you go: a more enlightened and useful post!

Are you aware there are other countries in the world beside the US? Could you at least have pointed out in the main article that this is only available for US residents (which in itself is a poor marketing move as you aim to - hopefully - reach a wider audience).

I'm fed up with everyone thinking the world starts and ends within the US.

I'm not a real audiophile, because I spend almost all of my limited time listening to music and not to things like cables, but I have an open mind and would be happy to try them out.......

Schmidlapper's picture

If I won. Which now I actually stand a chance of.


frankmccullar's picture

I am finally a believer in the improvement of the sound with decent cabling. Adding a good power cable changed the sound of my good system to a great system. Send me these interconnects and maybe it will get even better.

nonoise's picture

Nothing like another set of cables to try out and this time, from a well respected designer who actually makes them himself, from scratch.

srdykes's picture

...for my new basement rig!

bigasherm's picture

I need new cables like I need a hole my head, but I want them! If I win I will have some more toys to play with.

As a site dedicated to audio, I have to say it's surprising that I had to use someone with sight to register.
