No Quality Control Whatsoever Not at ALL impressed with these. I bought a lot of these, in varying lengths, and the plugs' covers were loose on 98% of them. One set didn't even have the cable fully seated in the plug, so bare copper wire was exposed. It doesn't look like this company has ever heard of the conceot of Quality Control/Assurance. 1No expert, but no evident reason for me to give less than 5 stars Very nice. Solid construction and looks. I'm using them with a pair of Pioneer SP-BS22-LR and a Monoprice 25w hybrid amp for turntable (AT-LP120-USB) and BT from my MacBook Pro. Music sounds great and clean, except for the occasional hum and interference from the amp (but not sure I can attribute that to these cables before I get cleaner power cables). The banana plugs connect well... I have nothing else to compare against but for my use, I have no reason to give it less than five stars. If something like that comes my way, I'll update accordingly. 5Update 11-22-2018: Very high quality! Helps my Sony SSCS5 bookshelf speakers sing! Update 11-22-2018 re: additional Silverback wire purchased for Sony SSCS5 surround speakers also from Amazon/World Wide Stereo in our newly expanded 5.1 set up:I recently purchased a 100-foot spool of Sewell Silverback 12 AWG speaker wire to install our two new Sony SSCS5 bookshelf speakers as the surround speakers on 36-inch Pangea stands in our nearly all-Sony home theater with STR-ZA3000ES receiver, SSCS5's also at front L and R, SSCS8 for center, and SACS9 for subwoofer. To run the farthest surround speaker required 50 feet of wire that I routed along the baseboards. The SSCS5 is rated at 6 Ohms, so with such a long run of wire, I felt 12 AWG was a safe bet to ensure great sound. For the nearer speaker, I used the remaining 50 feet of Silverback wire. I measured and confirmed 100 feet of wire on the spool, as advertised. Verdict: Success! Phenomenally beautiful, powerful, and dynamic sound from all Sony Core Series speakers, Sony STR-ZA3000ES receiver, and Sewell Silverback 12 AWG wire in 5.1 set up that just keeps getting better and better. Jaw-dropping sound nearing my standard of perfection that I am thoroughly convinced can be attributed to thorough and tedious homework, purchasing the right quality components, and ensuring their best placement in our home theater/den space. Details do matter, as far as I can tell. One of those details, Sewell Silverback wire, is excellent wire in our home theater set up. At minimum, I know that it is of very high quality, and I am certainly confident that the stunning sound we are hearing is the best that we can possibly get from our extremely capable Sony and Sony ES components. No doubt about it.Original review re: 6-foot lengths of Silverback wire with banana plugs:Great product of high quality that I highly recommend. The Sewell Silverback 12 AWG cables fit perfectly and work great with my Sony STR-ZA3000ES AV receiver and Sony SSCS5 bookshelf speakers on 31-inch stands. The highly-regarded and renowned Core Series speakers sound great anyway, but with these excellent speaker cables in the audio chain, they just sing and sing again like there is no tomorrow! I believe it only stands to reason that the true quality of these interconnects, including quantity and quality of pure oxygen-free copper strands helps make for true quality in the delivery of the intended sound from the source. The best part is that you can get this great quality at an equally great affordable price. I hope this helps. Cheers! 5WOW! like super flexible jumper cables for my speakers! These are simply awesome speaker cables. I have an amp with banana plugs, speakers without, and I was prepared to simply cut off the other ends - but WHAT A BONUS - these cables have a pair of setscrews inside each banana plug (as opposed to soldered, or crimp)... making them completely removable and re-installable if I ever buy new speakers with banana plugs. How cool is that?!?So indeed these are very thick cables, with many (supposedly 250+, I didn't count) tiny, real copper wires. I saw many of the other cables were copper plated aluminum. Well, copper is rather expensive these days, but sound quality is not a place to skimp. With so many small wires, the cables are not at all stiff.I'm not an audiophile, but I swear I can hear a difference.... (ok, the fact that I replaced 3-twisted pair silver-colored PA wire might have an effect)... but seriously - these are really quite awesome cables. Completely happy :) 5Disappointing plugs but good wire For the price, I would still say these give you more bang for your buck then going to your local electronics and spending a small fortune for not that much more, in terms of quality. That being said, these still broke after a month or 2 of use. I was pretty disappointed but not surprised. The plugs seem cheaply made and assembled. I was happy with the wire but it does me no good with one plug. 2Absolutely Awesome So, I bought a Pioneer Elite A/V Receiver for about $1000. Then I bought a room full of Klipsch Reference Premier speakers with Dolby Atmos Surround... So why would I use just any wire... I checked lots of brands and stores. But this was the best wire I found, hands down. Here's why I selected it. Wire doesn't transport electricity like a pipe with water flowing through it, rather the electrons action move across the surface of the material. Thus, the more surface area the better the flow. This wire, being 12 AWG (12 gauge) is thicker yet it has more individual strands than almost anything else I found, which means the total surface area is much greater than most other 12 AWG wires on the market. The wire was tightly packed reducing air pockets that lead to oxidation. Oxidation on the wires is like sludge build up in a drain, it blocks the smooth flow and eventually chokes it off completely. The insulation quality was awesome too, one side is a grey/silver the other is black, making it easy to keep straight, no thin colored line to try to find. I bought the pull box of 100 ft, because I could customer cut wires to the length I needed to ensure sufficient length without having too much "extra" coiled up. I simply bought the Silverback banana plug ends which are gold plated and attach via 2 opposing crimping screws. They are solid as a rock and look awesome. I was short about 10 feet of wire to connect my last speaker, so I bought a pre-made 10ft Silverback speaker wire with gold plated banana plugs on it... It costs a little more for the pre-assembled but either way, it was 100% worth it...The plugs even came with a small screw driver the right size for the crimping screws. So there you have it, I would love to tell anyone about how awesome this stuff is; quality, look, feel, weight, ease of use, etc.. 5Sewell has a new believer As an avid audio enthusiast for decades, I have always been very skeptical of the lofty claims of high-end cable manufacturers. I remain dubious of cables that cost hundreds of dollars, but on the other hand, I have changed my tune on the importance of high quality speaker cables. I recently replaced a pair of heavy gauge speaker cables from Lowes with a set of Sewell Silverback 12ga cables. I was very surprised by the positive effects of the new cables on performance of my modest 2.1 system (FLAC to Teac UD301 DAC to Onkyo A9150 amp to Klipsch RP250F & Polk sub). The sound seemed to open up, particularly in the mid-range. Vocals seem less pinched and more natural. A very nice improvement at a very reasonable cost.The build quality of the Sewell Silverback cables is first rate, and there is NO discernible odor as reported by other users. 5Great cables! I bought five of these for now: two for each of my main speakers for biamping, one for my center channel. My primary speakers are B&W CM8S2, and I prefer biamping. Since the copper is finely stranded, these cables are very easy to manage and don't easily kink. They come properly packaged in loops, not wound tight like cheap cables leaving you to straighten or de-kink the wire.This is 12 gauge wire, so it's far larger than what most people are used to seeing for speaker wire. It's probably bigger than what is really necessary, but it's what I like. I want the most out of my awesome speakers, and using the larger gauge should minimize any loss or signal degradation, even if for me the signal travels only six feet.The bananas fit snugly into my speakers and receiver, they're not extremely long shells, and I like the look of both the bananas and the cable (see my photo). As others have noted, these aren't soldered or bonded by any fancy means other than a screw securing the wire to the banana plug. This doesn't bother me--in fact, I like it because I can more easily repair or replace connectors if ever that become necessary. The outer shell screws over the banana and cable, and it had worked loose on about half the cables in shipping. If that happens, just screw them down. Done!These are my new favorite speaker cables. I only wish Sewell sold the wire in spools shorter than 200 feet. If they did, I'd buy some to have on hand. Maybe I'll call and beg them anyway!Buy the cables. If you're any kind of audiophile in training, these will give you good sound and make you feel good about wiring your system with beefy cable that people will look at and proclaim "holy cow"! 5Great cables that smell like burning plastic. Some reviews advised that the harsh odor issue had been corrected. I received these on Tuesday. Now, four days later, they're still AWFUL smelling...and it has permeated every room in my house. I don't know what the outer coating is made of, but it's a REALLY poor choice. The cables are good quality, but I'll have to try coating them with some other finish. 3Provides better control over the speakers Damping factor is the ratio of speaker impedance to amplifier+cable impedance. Higher damping factor provides better control over the speakers. Fat short cables help keep the damping factor high, long thin cables do the opposite.6' Silverback 12 gauge vs 24 gauge speaker cable: Cable resistance: 0.019 Ohms vs 0.313 Ohms. 16 times better Total damping factor with Laboratory amplifier (HP 467A): 333 vs 25. 13 times better Total damping factor with Parasound 1000A: 275 vs 24. 11 times betterDepending on your amplifier and speakers you may hear some improvementThe 2 parameters that define the performance of a speaker cable are:1- Length, the shorter the better.2- Thickness, the heavier, wider the better.There is nothing else, the rest is snake oil. 5
