Russ Andrews launches Kimber Select flagship speaker cables, from £3772
We can hear the cries of "How much?" already. Russ Andrews' new KS-6000 range of high-end speaker cables starts at £3772 for a 2.5m pair of KS-6063 and rises to an eye-watering £21,388 for 3.5m of KS-6068.
Given that that's the price of a pretty decent car, these cables must be something special.
There are three cables in the KS-6000 range: KS-6063, KS-6065 and KS-6068. They build on the existing KS-3000 series, and combine Kimber's VariStrand conductors in a woven, multi-layer matrix geometry, with solid core conductors.
The KS-6063 features VariStrand copper and solid core copper with a X38R central core and pigment-free dielectric.
The midrange KS-6065 adds silver cable to both the VariStrand and solid cores in a 2:1 copper to silver ratio, while the range-topping KS-6068 uses silver cable throughout. All are fitted with nextgen connectors, the '6068 having silver ones. Prices in full are as follows:
Kimber Select KS-6063
Kimber Select KS-6065
Kimber Select KS-6068
All prices quoted as fitted with WBT 0610 banana plugs, with 60-day money-back guarantee.
Russ Andrews, managing director, says: "These really are top-flight cables. You can immediately hear all the rhythm and timing that characterises Kimber cables, but there's just so much more of it."
