    What's your budget per metre?

    Lots of us recommend Van Damme cables - specifically, the Studio Blue. The 2.5mm version can be had for 2.50 per metre. The 1.5mm version comes in at under 2 quid a metre.

    Yep, van Damme all the way! Forum steered me toward it a few months ago after a frustrating QED evolution experience, very happy with it!

    Well it was about £1.15 a metre but what the hells £0.15p in this game lol

    Im just tight with money and the cable looks good quality and at 532 strand 2x 4mm it just seemed such better value than bi name brands that give you less cable and more insulation.

    Of course the lack of insulation is a concern but im not really in an environment that will give off significant interference. Im also of the band that copper is what you need and this in picture atleast looks like a big old lump of oxygen free copper so fingers crossed.

    What i saved on the cable tho ive blown £20 of on som Sewell Silverback Kong banana plugs. Hope they do the business. Ill be sure to do a post when its all set up lol
