I was going through ebay today and came across this company called 8Audio.

Their cables and connectors seem to appear high end and the rates seem too good to be true.

Take a look

Cables like this one for Rs 1000 And this one for 2000 seem to be too good to be true..

Even these flatline copper and silver speaker cables look interesting

Yes 8Audio cables are quite VFM and also deliver good quality. Some users are using cables from 8Audio. I think Audiodoc and kaushik has some experience with them.

From what I know the quality of coaxial cables is measured by the quality of it's shielding, and those wires look ridiculously well shielded so might actually serious value for money.

Looks like a internet only company like emotiva..
The problem with these companies is that, there could be no demo and all the good news need to be passed on by word of mouth.
I have reached a stage where I no longer gauge the cables by shielding or looks. So its kind of a deadlock..

If only someone in india can lend them for a day.. :rolleyes:

It's international delivery...they're based in china, have a look at the ebay store for more details.

This threads about finding out their quality. Maybe you can go ahead and buy it and tell us :D :eek:hyeah:

8audio has some cool enclosures too. I have purchased some chassis and tube protectors from him. Good stuff.
