Interconnect Cable business/technology for sale
« on: 21 Nov 2015, 08:40 pm »
I simply don't have time or an assembler for my patented top-tier interconnect cables or speaker cables anymore because my component business keeps me so busy, so I want to sell the business.  It is cheap at $10K for the IC's and $10K for the speaker cables.  Negotiation possible, depending on what parts are included etc..  Best if the purchaser is local in Oregon, but not required.

The business includes webpages, a full set of BOMS for different lengths, collaterals including white-papers and a cable FAQ.  Computer simulations and measurement plots for some of the cables will be provided.  Purchase includes up to 2 days of training on assembling the interconnects and instructions for the speaker cables.  Includes three drill presses with jigs for various operations and Tube Furnace for annealing of wire. There are enough parts to build about 25 ICs and a few speaker cables.  New silver wire must be purchased. Here are photos of the machines and parts:

These cables compete with the top cables on the market and I will divulge to the new owner several improvements that will make them even better performing, improved aesthetics and easier to fabricate so they can be reviewed again. This will make them new and improved over the ones that I sold.  You can advertise that the technology is based on Empirical Audio cables, but you cannot sell them under my company name.

The interconnects are unshielded silver bare-wire with the lowest capacitance of any IC on the market at 3.8 pF/foot.  This makes them particularly interesting for DAC to preamp and DAC to amp applications where the DAC output impedance is high and the capacitance of the cable must be low. 

There are a number of trade secrets with both the IC's and speaker cables that protect them, but you can list the patent numbers on each.  These were positively reviewed in Stereophile in 2013 and were listed in their recommended components for years:

I can provide the customer list as well.

Some photos of the RCA and XLR cables:

It cost me more than $20K for the two patents alone.  The parts and machines are worth at least $5K.  This is a steal for a business like this.  Buy some silver OCC wire on Ebay and you are ready to build 20-25 ICs right away.  I will connect you with the reviewers so you can get the new version cables reviewed.
