Supra FS gets 5 stars from What Hi-Fi
What Hi-Fi reviewed the FS fully wired scart cable (SRP £37.99 for a 1m)
in their November 2004 issue and awarded it 5 Stars, and said "..we applaud
this lead: the picture knits together beautifully and there's plenty of detail.
This is great value."
New Digital Video cable pricing
As a result of improved manufacturing techniques, as well as economies of scale
associated with the high level of consumer interest, you will be pleased to note
that the retail prices for Supra's digital video cables have now been reduced.
The new pricing will be in effect after close of business today.
The new "base" prices, for the 1.0 metre terminated cables, is as follows:
Supra 1m HDMI <> HDMI - now £44.99 (was £49.99)
Supra 1m HDMI <> DVI - now £39.99 (was £44.99)
Supra 1m DVI <> DVI - now £34.99 (was £39.99)
The "per metre" additional cost for longer lengths of these cables will
remain at £10 per additional metre.
The new Supra LoRad 1.5 CE-approved audio grade, factory terminated, shielded
mains cable will start shipping shortly. The initial run will be in 1.5m lengths,
and will be terminated with Supra's own 13A UK mains plug and IEC connectors.
This will retail at £49.99 (inc VAT) per set. We are hopeful that a 1.0
metre version will also be available at a target price of £44.99 (inc VAT).
In both cases, you should be aware that Supra LoRad is one of the few audio grade
"replacement" mains cables that is actually CE-approved and which meets
BS standard BS:1362.
As such it is legal to sell LoRad 1.5 in the UK and you will not be bothered by
concerns from Trading Standards, who may take exception to non-approved replacement

We are awaiting final confirmation of the availability of the smaller diameter
The new version, called LoRad 1.5, will retail alongside the existing LoRad 2.5,
and will be available "off the reel" or as CE/BS approved replacement
UK > IEC mains leads.
The benefits of LoRad have been established for some time now - as the cable is
one of the few available worldwide that is fully CE approved. The main benefit
is the shielding which helps to ensure that other low level signal cables are
not affected by the close proximity of the LoRad mains cable - induced RF interference
has been one of the biggest bug-bears of high quality audio and video reproduction
and so by equipping one's hi-fi or AV system with LoRad, you should both see and
hear a difference.
Pricing of LoRad 1.5 in both "off the reel" and pre-terminated versions
will be announced soon.
Supra are pleased to announce the imminent availability of Supra's own HDMI /
Available from mid-July, the triple shielded, silver plated cables, will be available
with a choice of either HDMI and/or DVI connectors fitted at either end.
These new type cables, we expect, will become "standard" on many new
products being introduced this summer from the likes of Pioneer and Panasonic,
who already have HDMI equipped products available.
Already many high definition projectors have DVI or HDMI sockets fitted and with
many other brands and other types of equipment adopting these new standards, so
many new consumer electronics products will become more easy to connect together.
Due to be available in a range of lengths (from 1m upto 15m), and priced very
competitively, these new cables will reinforce Supra's leading position as one
of the UK's most prominent specialist cable suppliers to the burgeoning AV market.

Also announced today are the HDMI and DVI adapters that will convert one socket
type to the other. Available as HDMI (Male) to DVI (Female) as well as HDMI (Female)
to DVI (Male), these adapters will enable the connection of either type of equipment
to the other.
