Craig, told me he thinks these are very good, much better than the previous Eichmann bullit plugs. What does that better really mean, I guess potential, but there is never an absolute on a well tuned system. l really what to try these soon,  Plus this is an Australian company.

Yep, one of the best Australian companies! They are well known throughout the audiophile world. I am very interested to see what the silver does to your system this time around Steve!  8)

I was talking to a guy on another forum about these the other day, he got both the copper and silver ones, and thought they were both excellent, in his system and to his ears he preferred the silver ones.

Heh, just another thing going on my list :)

My issue with standard Eichman plugs,  is the spot where the ground wire attaches is small,  and this meant the ground wire could (and would) easily break free as the IC was being flexed.   

Looks like they have addressed that problem in the new design,   see the pins in the pic at the bottom right.

I've had that problem on 2 of my connectors.  Had to solder the pin back together which I don't think is ideal for sound quality.

Its just hard to get a really solid solder join, on such a small ground connector.

Really happy to see the bigger pin on the new model.

I tired them both.  They are easy to solder, strong, easy to put on/off an RCA socket, look good, and most of all they both sound great. 

The Silver, for my ears is better... thanks  :)

Hey PingPing,

Where did you buy them from? And how much did they cost?

Hi Greg, Aurealis ($66/Copper, $99/Silver).  Just had a look at KLE Innovations website and it shows Aurealis, RK Cable, Soundlabs, and Holton...  :)

More resolution but none of the sonic nasties we associate with silver. Heard them in his system and I wouldn't have picked silver in the chain.

Silver plugs seem to be the preferred choice over copper with these new plugs?

Interesting...

Shall buy a couple of sets of silver since they on sale. Need to make some half decent interconnects! (With copper wire funny enough :))
