Has anyone tried new Auvio cables from Radio Shack

I just tried some Auvio interconnect cables from Radio Shack in my Dad's fairly modest apartment system and I am shocked at how well they work. They clearly hit well above their very modest price. Since I have not done a thorough comparison, I would not call them "Giant Killers" at this point, but I would suggest they at least compare favorably to other budget Hi Fi cables in the $50 to $200 range - quite a bargain at $25 for a 6 ft. pair for the Auvio's.

They look a lot like the Radio Shack "Fusion" cables I bought a few years ago, and perform equally with that high value product. I actually replaced some Audioquest Diamondback cables with a pair of Fusions recently in my primary system because I feel the RS cables are more balanced sounding to my ear right now.

I am wondering if anybody else has tried Auvio cables, and if so, what was your experience?

Presumably the wire comes from the same factory in Taiwan or China which makes the "premium" or "reference" brand, right?
Btw, the perception problem they face isn't that all their products are lousy; rather, they will proudly sell lousy stuff.

Some of odds and ends are ok. I am thinking of banana jacks, and the like. They cater to a niche that doesn't a Bel Canto from a Bell pepper.
Shoot, man! Why do you have to spill the news?

Just kidding! I too have the cables. I found that in my TT rig, the cables works excellent! It seems that their "double shielding" works very well.

I have compared the cables, on phono duty only, to Groneberg Quattro and Groneberg TS Premium (sold by Odyssey Audio at Audio Circle) and found that it has better sound in the mid to high frequency range than the Gronebergs. Bass department is the same. I tried the cables on line level signals (cd, preamp to amp) and could not confirm any solid advantage/disadvantage from the Gronebergs. But, in the same system, my Nordost Blue Heaven Rev II sounds anemic to it.

Another cheap but excellent cables I prefer in phono application and line level duty is the Mogami 2534 if you do not mind to do a DIY.

My experience is base on my system performance only so YMMV. I am using 100dB speakers running full SET, so hum is the enemy.

Good stuff is where you find it.

I have Belkin PureAV Silver brand (as opposed to Blue) speaker cables in my analog 2-channel system. The current version uses OFC, but the previous version (like mine) used OCC (monocrystal copper) with multiple solid conductors of varying gauges--kind of like AudioQuest Varistrand PSC. Mechanically the packaging and connectors are on a par with PS Audio (which I use in another system). I got two pairs of these Belkins on closeout for $20 per 15-ft pair.
Got me interested. I passed a Radio Shack during lunch, purely by accident and got a pair for $20.00. I'll let them burn in and do a comparison against ELF Gold Helix, Virtual Dynamics, Audio Quest King Cobra and Quest's Black Mambas. So far, I've concluded that their packaging far exceeds other expensive cables I've purchased. I love those $300 cables in a zip lock bag
