I have experience with a few of their interconnects. I think the Oxyfuel is one of the best values available in cables today. Their customer service is also excellent. Check out their website at www.zucable.com

I am impressed with the tonearm cable I purchased, I also bought Julian's and liked them but had results similar to Boa2 and ended up keeping the Goertz which the ZU was going to replace.
Very well built and an excellent company to deal with. They frequently sell on ebay and sometimes you can get good prices to try them out.
I have enjoyed all the Zu cables I've tried, and I had fun buying some on auction at eBay. Good deals to be had there, but even at full retail I think the Zu cables are very competitive.
I've owned Warmouth, SV1000 video cable, Ash digital, and Pivot. I still have the Pivots and the SV1000. I'm hoping to find a Mobius for my Sennheisers.
Zu service is second to none--they really are great.
I have the following Zu Cable products:
- Pivot mini-to-mini and mini-to-RCA cables
- Bok power cords
I had the Gede RCA interconnects and the Julian speaker wire (bi-wired).
I think the company and service is superb and the quality of their products is excellent. Their products are good value for the money. Obviously, take advantage of their money-back guarantee if you are not satisfied.
I had and tried in my sytem:Varial XLR and RCA interconnects;Ibis and Vax speaker cables;Mother PC.Agreed with Boa2 and Steelhead-Even after 250 hours break-in sound was lifeless and flat.Power cords(Mother)sounds pretty good for this money,but stiff and thin.To my opinion,ZU use cheap materials as internal wire and connectors.But Zu servise is outstanding,that's true.Looks very cool too.
I have many Zu cables in my systems. I am using Ibis speaker cable for WP5.1 and also have Libtec speaker cable in other system. I use Mother II PC for Shanling T200c SACD player,use Bow PC for power amps and Varial MKII RCA and XLR for CD to pre. All in all, they do sound good to me, very musical, lots detail, never slow down the music.
BTW, I also have AQ sky, Cheetch, Kalamanjero cables and I use Harmenix DC PC cable for my preamp with Electraglide Epiphany for power conditioner. I am not saying the ZU cables are better or same as these cable but the ZU cables sound very good in my systems for MUCH LESS money.
The Mobius cable is generally regarded as the finest headphone replacement cable in the industry. See head-fi.org.
The Varial sounded good while I used it (about 100 hours), but then I switched to XLR cables...so not much comment there.
The Ash coax cable is great...my previous cable (Kimber) gave occasional errors (according to my Benchmark DAC1 status lights), but the Zu Ash is rock solid.
Their service is excellent (they were happy to give my a custom BNC connector on the Ash cable). Their cables look great too.
I own the Variel Interconnects RCA and Balanced. I also own the Ibis bi-wired speaker cable and a Mother Power cord.
Though I have moved on to other cables , I thought they performed pretty good at the prices they could be obtained at.
We all need some cables for our NOT top of the line equipment.
Presently my Zu cables are in my Surround sound home theatre setup.
