My Speaker Cable Auditons

Ah ha. I think you've located the same shop as I used jinger... Yep I paid 110 inc delivery for the 5m pair of 4TC, so it is genuine. I think you're looking at about 350 new. Connect the spades to the speakers, leave the bananas on and use BFA converters on the amp end. I've seen 4TC speaker termina...

My Speaker Cable Auditons

OK so I got some Kimber 4TC in the end. Good lord above this is fantastic cable. Haven't switched the hifi off since I installed it. So.... I'll give my thoughts compared to the Cable talk 3.1, Atlas Hyper 2.0 and Chord Epic.... Whacked Fool's Gold (Stone Roses) on and.. ummm that sounds very good. ...

Cyrus CD8SE - an independent review

I'd give any new Cyrus CD player at least 48 hours of continual playing before making any judgements. ;)

Interconnect test

Cheers for the replies guys. I didn't want to start a cable debate, but I was just so amazed at the outcome of the test I wanted to know what the hell was going on! When I tested different speaker cable the differences were quite apparent. The other thing that struck me was that switching between th...

Interconnect test

This sounds more like it i.e. my test methodology is suspect rather than the cables! ;) In fact I remeber when I first upgraded my budget system (the aforementioned Sony CDplayer, a Rotel amp and Tannoy M1 speakers). I chucked away the freebie i/cs and replaced them with the Cam Audio pacific. It wa...

Interconnect test

After listening to some speaker cables I thought it would be an interesting exercise to test some different interconnects in my system. I'm 100% happy with the Cyrus i/c on the CD to pre and pre to power but I'd just bought a Gotham GAC for the DVD player and has interested to hear how the 2 stacked...

Cyrus CD8SE - an independent review

I'm very suprised with Robert's review. To me the 8SE sounded almost twice as good as the 8X, albeit in a high end amp/speaker configuration. The realism of acoustic instruments, for example, was amazing. Horses for courses I suppose. For those wondering whether to upgrade I'd have thought the sensi...

My Speaker Cable Auditons

Thanks for the input guys. So that gives me some more to try. 8TC could be interesting, obviously i'd have to start saving to get something like that... but then what would be the point of upgrading anthing else unless you're eeking the max out the speaker cable..? Still interested to try DNM stereo...

Spent a few quid now what's it sound like?

[quote="crimsondonkey"][quote="shrink"]mate your speaker cable is murdering your system. That cyrus biwire stuff, im afraid to say, is pretty dreadful. Even DNM who original designed cable just like it, admit that its not intended for use on the end of larger amps. Ive found the DNM / Cyrus cables t...

Spent a few quid now what's it sound like?

Actually thinking about it before you had

CD8x 1000 quid
Prevs2/6P 1000 quid
GS10 900 quid

now you have

CD8X 1000 quid
Prevs2/MonoX 3000 quid
GS10 900 quid

So probaly your CD and speakers are the limiting factor. Perhaps an 8SE upgrade?
