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 love cables.

Alan Tomlinson's picture

I like yellow.

And my current interconnects were designed by Bruce Brissom when he worked for Monster Cable. They would love to be put out to pasture.

Thank you,


Alan Tomlinson

Those connectors look like RCAs. How can you have a balanced cable with only one conductor and a shield? The low side would have to go to ground with or without being tied to the shield. Please enlighten me.

hellion's picture

I have a set of Morrow MA1's that's arriving today, but I'd love another set of RCAs to experiment with!

Florence's picture

Professional gears must do right their work,don't look sharp.Time and money spent to make it look good,time and money stealed to make it working better.My costumers must be satisfied of my professional working,not amazed of your yellow titti cables...

rollo5's picture

They look GREAT!  Would love to have them.

33bowls's picture

Oh where, oh where is a new pair...of cables.

Preaching to the choir here, but over and over have found how significant cabling is; particularly in context with associated components.

aopu.mohsin's picture

Do very high-end cables really make difference in sound so it is easily noticable?  Well, I guess I will find out with these.

Jeffstudio's picture

Oh yeah .... I've got just the place for them !

beverett's picture

Looking for a nice upgrade from my Audioquest G-snakes. I've hard nothing but amazing things about these connects and would love to try them out!

XLR8R22's picture

I could use a good pair of interconnects, would be interesting to compare them to my cheapo ones.

fkrausz's picture

Is it a good thing that they're halogen-free?  Just asking.  I'd be delighted to see if they couldn't outperform my (not-very-expensive and not-very-new) Audioquests.

And, btw, since when did people start labeling goods as "made in EU" rather than made in, say, Switzerland or Portugal?

FSonicSmith's picture

I would love a pair of good and free ICs.

rowland's picture

I'm in the market for new cables so perfect timing for this contest.

Nice way to start building the whole new system.

downunderman's picture


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




nile49's picture

The design sounds interesting, now let me have em!

mike the electrician's picture

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.

deckeda's picture

as long as it's not profane or spam


Oh, you meant this post. (Whew!)

music or sound's picture

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.

sophilobro's picture

May fate grant me the luck to win these cables.

jacobg12's picture

Woo! This would be fantastic, I can only afford to use basic cabes at the moment.
