van damme pro studio grade, use bits for jumpers.

This stuff, you may find it cheaper if you shop around

just bought some of this and made jumpers from a short length,excellent improvement.

cost imho,means nothing where cables are concerned.

my other recommendation if you want a branded cable is Nva ls1.

both of these cables have a neutral balance,as a rule of thumb with these cables,the thicker the more bass weight the trade off being the treble may be a little more recessed.

i use van damme 2.5 mm

i think the nva ls1 is 7 strand ls3,14 and ls5,21

I changed from Chord to Van Damme, easier to route, as in bends easier, and thats at 4mm sq. Any change in sound, I think so, but I assume thats simply because of the extra thickness of copper. The main reason I changed was cost, I need 2 x 11m runs and I refuse to pay stupid amounts of money for rebranded copper cable, covered in posh wrappers. And the Van Damme is a nice shade of blue, clashes very well with most things.

they do free home trials on a buy it if you like it basis. send it back if you dont.

they also do kit form stuff (some of which i have) and have to say that for the money they are excellent.

I just looked at this site, they don't seem to do speaker cables or am I looking in the wrong place?

As mentionned in another post, the best way to do it is get some unterminated cable and use the final inch to go through your binding posts. Remember, the best connector is no connector at all, and the best jumper is no jumper at all. You could spend hundreds on platinum WBTs, Siltech jumpers or rhinoceros horn, they will still be in the way of the signal.

Spend the money on the cables and as Tel commends, don't bother bi-wiring.

well i dont know what to say about that tel. just had a look myself and i cant see it either?. he certainly used to do speaker cables as i owned some of them for quite a while and they were very good indeed. might still be worth ringing to find out, a really nice bloke to talk to and a free no stringshome trial. i cant think of another cable manufacturer that offers such a service. i might be wrong though.
