great products & excellent service

i bought 8 Isotek US plugs & IEC connectors, they were great quality as compared
to Oyaide, but only cost 66% as much, they were all copper component & 24K gold plated to prevent oxidation. only problem is i'd like to finish my pre-amp from Japan before i can get to making the new power cable, but i believe they would be a great upgrade from my old ones. again, Mains-Cables-R-Us provided excellent service in
getting the parts to me that i would recommend they to any friend.

Made to order

I ordered something not from stock, elements had to be hand built. Despite that I received the order in just over a week. Very pleased with it as it does the job even better than expected.

I just emailed David with a number of questions. He replied in about two minutes, very impressive.

Item advertised as in stock but has not shipped 2 weeks after ordered and paid for.

Main Cables Are Us sells nice items. In particular I have bought 2 power extension for my Hi-Fi from MCRU.

Once it went smoothly. Once the extension had to be shipped unassemblied because the shipping cost advertised did not cover the real shipping cost to send it assembled (it was a relatively long 6 gang extension). So I had to assembly it from the separate shipped parts at my expense. This time, I have paid for my third extension two weeks ago and it is still being prepared for shipping (although it was advertised as in stock).

Nevertheless the quality of the products is good and I am not implying any malicious intent at all. I just would like MCRU to be more... organized.

Reply from Mains Cables-r-us

hello
I am very organized, all mains blocks and mains leads are made to order, yours is built and on test, you wouldn't want me to send it out un-tested would you? The comment you are making about sending a block out un-assembled is in-correct, perhaps before posting you should ask if there is a problem at all, you would have been told I am extremely busy and your order is about to be dispatched.
Best Regards....MCRU

Great advice and service as allways

Rang Mains cables-r-us for some advice on speaker cable, in particular Tellurium Q black. Got great advice from them, and about 10 minutes later the cables were on their way. Arrived two working days later, and they live up to every expectation. Great service and product!

Excellent product, brilliant service

I bought the 'cables r us' power supply for a Chord Qute Dac to replace the standard (rubbish) power supply. The difference was outstanding: less sibilance, better definition, improved imaging and a big increase in the quality and quantity of the bass. It was impressive straight out of the box but 'broke in' after about 24 hours and took another step up in quality. The power supply was extremely well finished, so much so that you would think you were looking at something that was closer to £1000 than £150.
I ordered it for next day delivery and it arrived on time. David e-mailed several times to check that everything had arrived and that I was with happy with the product.
Highly recommended from start to finish. Well done David and thank you.

Cables that really work, good science and great prices

I have been into hi-fi ever since I replaced the cartridge on my dad's Imperial radiogram and used Plasticine to weight the stylus. So 40 years of tinkering etc. My first experience of the effect of mains cables came from the Penta show at Heathrow and by co-incidence it was Graham Nalty (Black Rhodium) using a new mains lead to improve the sound of one of his own design amps. I have over the last 15 years tried various DIY and manufacturers blocks and cables, borrowing some to test and making up my own as well as purchasing cheaper and pricier options. I have made two purchases from MCRU that have transformed my sound quality and it is the best tonal balance, clarity and foot tapping enjoyment I have ever had from a system. First purchase was Mains Lead No.27. Immediate improvement with this plugged straight into wall socket to amp and more expensive well know lead straight into wall to CD. As Malcolm Steward says it is a "killer cable" and the magic (my words) is in the sum of the parts working together. I have emailed David numerous times and always received great advice and answers. It was the No. 27. Cable that convinced me that in my house and system, RFI must be a problem as the improvement gained by the double RFI action of cable sheath (Faraday Cage) plus Carbon Infused Sleeve was so good. I decided to follow through and get a mains block. The RFI and plating science David follows seems to be sound. I could not afford to buy a No. 44 mains block and add the Carbon Infused Sleeve to it. I decided to go for the Audiophile Silver plated mains block, opted for the silver cable, added Carbon Infused sleeving and one of the new AMR gold plated fuse. Cost £132.20 inc. P&P. The big questions were- will this be better than plugging straight into the wall? And will the sound be improved? No surprise to know that it is a big yes to both questions. I advise anyone to try David's Cables but do dialogue with him as it is instructive and enlightening. He makes the differing products in his range for very good reasons. I think my more expensive woven cable may just get replaced by another No.27, but not before I email David first!!

Contacted the manufacturer and got hold of the component that I wanted!

They didn't have a part in stock but contacted the manufacturer and got back to me the next day (when they said they would). Friendly, not the cheapest for each component but overall price was right! Will buy from again.

When quality counts!

I value quality, quality of materials, and of workmanship. The product I purchased met this criteria, and then some, plus a service to match

Excellent service, and a pleasure to deal with

I bought a few minor things of little value and the service was as good as if I spent $3k. I won't hesitate to go through them again

Reliable and interesting store on the web for foreigners

I had an issue with my order, as my Paypal payment, first, would not go through. David told me (mail) to try again and everything went all right. After, shipping took four days and the product was exactly as I intended when I received it. Good store and webstore/master very vigilant and reactive: very conforting for orders coming from a foreign country.

Wondercable

The MeiCord ethernet cable when connected between my Gigabit switch and network audio player ( Naim ND5 XS) produced a vast improvement in sound quality with improved bass, clarity and sharpness of vocals and instruments and good timing.

Faultless! A delight to deal with.

I had just bought myself a decent Arcam amp/cdp set up and a friend with a similar set-up suggested that by upgrading the power leads and mains block that I would hear further sonic improvements. I've always been sceptical about the benefits of these "amazing" improvements just by changing power cables. My friend heartily recommended Mains Cables-r-us, and said that if I didn't hear any improvement within 30 days I could always return them and get a full refund. OK I thought, I'll give it a shot and contacted MCRU. All I can say is that from start to finish I have received nothing short of excellent service, superb communications, and despatched exactly when they said it would be. The leads and block are of a very high quality, and yes they have made a difference! Not "night and day" as some people would have you believe, but a subtle one nonetheless. For someone like me who listens to my hi-fi a lot this is money well spent I reckon, and I shall certainly be contacting MCRU again as and when I need further AV accessories.

PS: thanks for the free CD packed in with the leads!

Good communications are essential

I have found it very refreshing dealing with this supplier. To have virtually instantaneous replies to queries makes the shopping experience both rewarding and satisfying.

The range of products is good and if not in stock you are told how long it will be before they are.
