    Can anyone advise if its worth the extra money for the 4mm (two core) rather than the 2mm Van Damme Blue

    Im in a middle of an extension, and need longer cable to replace my QED silver anniversary (connecting Denon 3805 to MA Silvers).


    Kind Regards

    Hello Gabs

    As Gerbilly says the 2x2.5mm (£2.17/m) will do the trick - if your feeling flush then the 2x4mm (£3.79/m) wont hurt.

    Best regards

    Joe

    i have the 4 x 2.5 bi amped into my quads, still sounds a little thinner than my old silver anniversary 2 x 4mm in the mid range, do you think the 4 x 4mm will make much of a difference?

    Hello Ingo Bingo

    Difficult one when its so subjective.

    The VanDamme Black Series 4x4.00mm is definitely worth trying out - we may be able to organise a couple of lengths for you to try out.

    Best regards

    dont know if you made your decision yet but Joe i owe you some money!!!

    The black 4 x 4mm is a distinct improvment over the blue 4 x 2.5 i had previously!!!

    Hello Ingo Bingo

    The bills in the post :) or more likely the wired wilderness; I'll be in touch.

    Best regards
