    I'm in the process of upgrading my home cinema to THX.

    My new Denon A1SR came yesterday :D

    And I'm getting KEF THX speakers.

    My problem is speaker cable?

    At the moment it's between QED Silver anniversary (£4/m) or Monster 12 GA. THX (£1.25/m on eBay, it's from the US so I'll probably get attacked for tax).

    Any advise/other suggestions would be great?

    Cheers,
    Too Tall.

    Hi

    Its worth checking out Chords range of speaker cable.

    www.chord.co.uk

    I use the Carnival cable in my setup.

    I wouldn't worry too much about getting THX certified speaker cable.

    I use QED Silver anniversary with a denon A10SE and KEF THX and it sounds great.

    Just go with a warm good quality cable like the QED as the TDMs err on the brighter side so you dont want to use a bright sounding cable.

    The only THX cable thats readily available round here is Monster Cable, and I can't say i'm a fan of that particular company.

    I have Kef reference 3.2, 200c and 2 pairs of 34ds all running Chord Odyssey 4. Powered by my KAVC-A1SE.

    This allows biwired fronts and splitting the two rear runs for the four rears.

    Not cheap though.
