Quote Exalted Wombat:
I almost wish SOS had left this one alone. The damage done by opening the door to the idea of "magic" cables may be more than it's worth!
There's nothing 'magic' about the SOS Pseudo-balanced cable! It employs solid scientific principles its effectiveness in resolving ground loop hums in compatible systems is easily demonstrable in a reliable and repeatable fashion.
The reason we've made the cable available is simply because none of the usual cable makers seems to want to do it, and a lot of our SOS readers don't want to build their own.
The cable is built exclusively for SOS to our bespoke design, and is very good value considering the quality of cable, connectors and construction... and doubly so for subscribers who can buy at a very attractive price indeed! If you bought all the bits and pieces from Maplin to make your own you wouldn't get much change from a £20 note!
