I was searching for another pair of Kimber's excellent "Hero" interconnects and to my surprise, it appears as though these guys have gone WAY up in price. I seem to remember a new 2M pair going for around $210 (with WBT 0144 connectors) a few years back...now they're $350! Anyone know what gives with the siginicant price increase?

Almost all the cable manufacturer incrase your prices based on differents arguments.
Search in others sites for a used one.

It's just plain ridiculous. I'll be keeping an eye on Audiogon then.

Was finally able to score a pair of  brand new 1.5M with the WBT-0144 locking RCAs on eBay.  Seems like there are more there than on Audiogon these days which is just funny.
