Good news for International buyers and other addendum

First, international orders from now on will pay no extra shipping when compared to US buyers.  Rates are $5 for orders $49 and under and free for all orders $50+.

 

Second, recently added to the audio cables is the option for OCC copper and silver-plated copper.  Soon, litz coated wire will be an option as well.  Here's why OCC is a big deal for personal audio like headphones and amp/dac interconnects.  The process with which UP OCC is made starts with a pure metal (copper or silver, which I don't offer because costs are so insane for silver right now) and is then cast in such a way where the resulting wire is 1 crystal.  This ensures the best conductivity and consistency in the wire which is never a bad thing.

 

For those interested,  a white paper detailing technical specs and conclusions in regards to performance of OCC wire is linked here: https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0213/4262/files/occ.pdf?1508513069569546028
