The thread starts: Is there a life-expectancy of old cables? Old cables can oxidize (rust) and get brittle. Thus, lose their conductivity. I have old Monster speaker cable in my storage area which shows darkened, discolored wire. Is it still useful? Mobility, relocating, moving, bending, manipulating, as well as aging must have negative consequences on any cable. Should we consider this in our purchase of "used" cable thinking we are getting a good deal?
