    Guys,

    Just about to change my speakers to Misson M3 range with a BKXLS Sub.

    Whilst I'm at it, I was going to change my speaker cable. Any recommendations on the above (or something else at a similar price?)???

    Thanks
    Stace

    I use QED Silver Anniversary Bi-Wire on my Monitor Audio Gold Reference speakers, and am very pleased with the sound and level of detail. Not sure how it would pair with your kit, but I can testify to the quality of the cable.
    The Van-den-hul cleartrack is another good cable worth considering, I think I prefer the sound to my QED, but I would have to lift my carpets to replace them.

    I'm worried that the QED might sound to bright with my kit but have no experience of the Chord (is it warmer)????

    I currently have IXOS Gamma but as I'm changing (and will have to lift my carpet) I want to get it right!!!

    Any other experiences?

    The Chord recently knocked the QED off the top spot in What Hifi 2004 Awards edition. I think personally the Chord would be the way to go, but either of the two will be a winner. Maybe you can borrow a couple of metres of each from a specialist store and try them out before you commit to may metres?

    Hi Stace,
    Have you thought about going down the DIY route?

    Cheers
