101 - the name references US Route 101, the coastal highway that runs through Bandon, Oregon. *101 Speaker features two 14 AWG bare copper Cardas conductors, each built around a small air-tube, providing performance beyond its gauge. Natural cotton & PFA dielectric, and an Alcryn outer jacket contribute to making 101 a soft, flexible and great sounding cable. *Since it uses bare-copper, 101 is easy to work with - no solder pot is needed. 101 can be used with crimped or soldered connectors, or just strip-and-twist to use with 5-way binding posts. *101 is available with factory terminations (shown with bananas on left), or in bulk for DIY users.
