Pair of Cardas Cross interconnects 2 meter length, XLR factory terminated in very good condition. List $870; Bluebook $480. Asking $320 shipped.
Conservatively rated 8/10 for age, they look and sound lovely, with some mild scuffing on the strain relief collars from normal wear. Ready for immediate shipment. PayPal is preferred, and I will eat the fee if the asking price is met. Asking price includes shipping within the lower 48. Actual measured length is 78-¾ inches.
Cables come and cables go, but nothing beats Cardas. This is the 1st Generation Cross with the teal colored jacket and Neutrik plugs, valued for their warm presentation and deep bass response. If you need to smooth out some solid state glare, consider giving these a try. I ran them between preamp and power amp for several years with splendid results, but I’ve switched to an integrated so don’t need them anymore. The Cross series has long been considered the sweet spot in the Cardas lineup in terms of performance for value.

At the time of this posting, there is a comparable pair of single-ended 2M of this vintage for sale at UsedCables.com for $425.
My NY resolution is to clean out some unused cables so I will have several posted soon. I've included a spreadsheet with the listings if you want to pre-purchase.
