Parts Express sells power cable by the foot. You have to terminate it yourself.

Oh...I have a funny one for you bitterly sarcastic ones...

I have been investigating some OEM cable manufacturers / wire pullers lately in an effort to get some cable which is branded with my company name and logo. Well...I came across a company which happens to make the cable for a VERY well known and respected cable manufacturer (whom, for legal reasons, will remain nameless.) In any case, this famous (amongst audiophiles) speaker cable which costs a little shy of $20K for a 10' pair is purchased from the wire-puller for.........
