You can get most of them from my signature line. What you don't see there are the AudioQuest ethernet cables, WireWorld HDMI cables, and the HiFi-Tuning power cord on the TV.

Default Nordost vs Wireworld

Regarding only cost, how does Wireworld compare to Nordost at equivalent quality or level ? I am mostly wondering for the US market

Thanks

Nico

I use different interconnects, depending on application: Cardas, WW, Kimber, DHLabs, Tara Labs, and something I'm sure I'm forgetting.

Speaker cable - Dunlavy

Power cords and accessories - all DIY

I gathered a bunch of interconnects when I worked in the business, most were freebies, and that's what I use to this day. The speaker cable was a bonus of sorts from the manufacturer, as were the silver Music Meter jumpers. AC-wise, I look for interesting wire and work from there. A few of my past efforts:

For my meager system I use Morrow Audio interconnects and speaker cables - level 4's. PS Audio PCs.

Nordost and Nirvana as PC for my amps and sources. Ocos as speaker cable and Cardas and Van den Hul as IC's. The last one for my headphone system.
