    Hello dear fellow hi-fi addicts,

    Due to a little baby in the house I can do some experiments with my current setup while the baby is asleep. I use a yamaha dspa2 with a thule 150b cd player, a s75 dvd-a player and kef reference model2 front, 100 c centre kef, kef rdm one rear, 40 b sub. I replaced the copper connections at the end of my speakers with supra ply 1.5 speaker cable which i use for all the speakers but i don't biwire since the yamaha dspa2 has the small screwing connections and doesn't accept banana plugs so 2 times 1.5 won't fit. I tried now to connect the + and - speaker cable strands in the + and - connections on the speaker with Hf. And then I tried to connect them to the LF connections on the speakers and it sounds different! When attached to the hf they sound a bit more bass light but a tad more detailed and attached to the lf they sound warmer.
    So i suppose biwiring could bring benefits but how can i solve the connection problem with the screws on the end of the yamaha because thickers cable won't fit and altough i would like to replace it i can't miss the cash now.
    Thanks

    www.videotec.co.uk will mod your amp to use binding posts that'll accept banana plugs.
