I wonder why too. This week I should receive all 3 for trial and hopefully be able to discern the differences in my system/hearing preferences. I do have a revealing system.
After a couple of hours, I switched to the OF copper cables and the realism with definition, tone and impact throughout the frequency range just was so much better - the best my system has ever sounded - I might be finished other than small tweaks and room correction and speaker placement. I'm just thrilled. My wife, of course, is critical but after listening she said 'it sounds beautiful' and before she has said 'how can it get better than it is?'.
Next will be switching to the SPTC (silver coated) to listen BUT I am so impressed and satisfied with the Oxygen Free OF that I'd be completely satisfied to stop here BUT the SPTC is just staring at me and in a couple of weeks I'll put them in.
I will do another update at that time. Iconoclast speaker cables are very high-end in contrast to the moderate cost.
