It's wire.

Don't expect anything more than market value for comparable wire unless you find some PG fanatic that will pay more.

I've held onto my older PG connection accessories but just for nostaglia and not to turn a profit.

I didn't know old wire was worth anything more than scrap value?

The old Phoenix Gold wire has pixie dust in between the strands that increases the conductivity dramatically.

i would price it the same as knu's 12 gauge copper wire

The large gauge power wires have been hard to find and have a few people after them but speaker wire I thought you could still find new on the roll.

You need to have a pretty high snake oil content to pull big bucks on speaker wire. That's the only way it will open the 3d soundstage even close to the 4th dimension and provide the walloping vividity to compare to true audiophile wire. /idiocy

Everybody knows that snake oil doesn't conduct electricity. That's why they make the insulation out of it.
