Teo Audio Liquid metal cables
« on: 23 Jan 2017, 07:35 pm »
Hello, my name is Ken, and I'll probably cause some grief just by being here - and (some) people knowing that our company sells 'new technology' in the form of Liquid Metal audio cables. Some will tilt at such windmills.

Wait for it.....3..2..1...

 :o :? :wink:

Not breathing for an entire month is liable to create serious health issues. I think organ failure must be high on the list of such issues.

Yes indeed, the metallurgist in me is dying to know! Your webpage is somewhat sparse with technical details, so those of us with more scientific backgrounds would like to know how your feats are accomplished.

I found reviews - e.g. http://www.6moons.com/audioreviews/teoaudio2/liquid.html  - but not really much technical detail

Isn't there another company offering liquid metal cables?

I found this about pricing in the link to the above review I posted - "Pricing: Divorce inducing for the average ‘phile, probably quite reasonable for the well-heeled."

And here is more specifics - http://www.dagogo.com/teo-audio-liquid-cables-review

"TEO Liquid Standard Speaker Cable MkII:
1.5m pair $11,725
2.0m pair   $16,500
2.5m pair   $21,000"

Contacted my friend and his cables are slightly different. His use a metal wire conductor with liquid metal within a clear tube. I don't know the mechanism that's used to seal them. They are similarly pricey and I believe are from Germany.

This is interesting.

A single post gets nothing. A single response generates multiple responses.

If I could criticize AC, I'd say too many initial posts go unanaswered. BWTHDIK?

Welcome. Post your thoughts.......don't post once and disappear.

Anyone who hasn't heard these cables, better not unless your committed to spending $$.  They are NOT a gimmick!  There is NOTHING that sounds as real, no B.S.  I auditioned all the best balanced interconnects from the big names (Audioquest, Nordost, PAD, etc)  at 3X and 4X the price and it wasn't even close.  Facts are facts -  if you trust your ears you'll never go back to solid copper or silver or gold . . . !!  I wish i could afford the speaker cables, but the slurry (similar materials to that used in non-mercury thermometers) is expensive and more tubes are required for higher level signals and greater lengths - that's the only caveat!

 :o Let me go win the lottery and I will get right back with you.

It is bazarr these exotic cables are pushed on audiophiles when most recording studios uses the cheapest Monster cables.

If this is true, then:
1) You might have posted that at the outset to weed out the 99% of us who won't be interested based on price.
2) Good luck, but frankly unless there's serious trickle down technology at a fraction of the cost, then what's the point? You could purchase a glorious stereo SYSTEM for less than a 1.5 meter pair of cables. This is what hurts the image of this hobby and helps make us all a bit crazy.
