    hi all,

    well i'll finally be moving into the wonderful realm of arcam next weekend with the addition of an arcam cd23t and a22 amp which i'll be picking up for a nice price at a arcam dealer here in sydney. (the cd23 is ex-demo, a22 brand new in box). i was hoping someone out there may be able to suggest a brand/type of cabling which would suit this standard of system.

    i'll be using a pair of b&w cdm-1nt speakers with the cd23/a22, the dealer has suggest nordost blue heaven interconnects (AU$399) and speaker cabling (AU$899 for 2 x 2m).

    does anyone have any thoughts on the blue heaven series? maybe suggest a different brand, chord perhaps?

    any thoughts/suggestions most apprecaited.

    The Nordost Cable recommendation is a good one but you may find it soudns little bright with the B&Ws. An alternative would be the Van Den Hul range of cables which are much more laid back sounding, the Integration Hybrid interconnect and CS-122 speaker cable would be a good start.

    thanks for the recommendation crusty, spent a good few hours at the showroom this morning and came away with the cd23t, a22 and the nordost blue heaven interconnects and speaker cables. they just impressed me so much more than anything else we audtioned.

    now, back to the music :)

    I'm using Blue Heaven speaker cables with my A32, CD33, and Definitive Power Monitor speakers. No complaints here...

    The best cable for these units are QED Silver Anniversary. I use them also and its great, it cost you € 8 per meter. I dont know the Aus dollar price.

    The QED Silver Anniversary is ok if you have the A65+ and a CD73 but really doesn't do justice to the FMJ product line.
