What Speaker cable are we all using

Postby Starwarsmike2422 » Fri Oct 05, 2018 5:56 pm

Interesting to see what speaker cables are being used with a variety of systems.

I’m using Chord Signature - Furutech plugs on both ends
ASR Emitter Exclusive II
Roon -- SOTM Ultra+PSU -- TAD D1000
PS Audio P5 Regenerator
Sonus Faber Amati Speakers
Reference Fidelity Saturn cables
Symposium Isolation Platforms and Rollerblocks
GIK Acoustic Panels

yes using chord epic 2 runs into each tannoy speaker [ hf and lf] rather good

also using 28 pound 2.5mm van damme copper studio into my impulse speakers and they just sound incredible , just got some 6mm van damme studio to try . very good cable for the money . can`t afford long runs in fancy cable but it does not dissapoint

I see you have Boenicke speakers. Just deciding if I need any exotic cable for a pair of W5SE that are landing with me soon.

Not unless you want to waste money?
Plenty of places sell studio grade wire which will do as good a job!

Less than a meter per speaker.

Cheap bi-wire, I'm really happy with it.

Coherent 4D terminated with WBT banana on main system. Van Damme studio for surround sound.

Tried many over the years. They all have different house sounds. Some are designed to attenuate others are open.
