This is incorrect. Perhaps you are applying the same line of thought to speaker cable that you do with interconnect cable? Due to the low impedance of amplifier/speaker interface, a high-capacitance speaker cable will actually offset the series inductance of the cable. It's the series inductance that causes high frequency roll-off in speaker cables.That said, high-capacitance speaker cables can cause some amplifiers to oscillate. So, while high-capacitance is desirable in a speaker cable its use isn't always desirable.
I have heard Mike Morrow's SP1, SP2, and SP3 cables, and while I currently use the SP3s in my system, I think the SP1s are also an excellent value. Would not hesitate to recommend these.
Best value would be getting the Neotech UPOCC teflon copper stranded at Soniccraft, which is very affordable. There are so many retail cable choices with near infinite geometries and selling points that you're just playing lottery with a purchase; with the neotech at least you know you are getting the lowest dielectric you can get next to air, and the highest copper purity you can buy (okay, barring VhAudio and other uberexpensive brands). Almost always it's either one or the other via retail unless you shell out big bucks. Neotech: 16awg 8ft pr. <$150. The grain-free (not just covered up, rolled off) delivery of low dielectric and 6N occ copper/silver is something to be heard. Then you can fine-tune by doing twisted pair or separate or whatever geometry floats your boat. No reason not to diy speaker cables given the incredible price/performance value and ease of assembly.
The Liberty Cable bargain bin Z500 THX speaker cables are Neotech OCC. They were made by the same manufacturer, Wang Lung. You can't go wrong at $26.18 for 3m, $31.41 for 4m and $36.63 for 5m.Martin
Looks liike you have to be a dealer to buy them? There is no 'how to buy' info on that site.
10 AWG conductors constructed with:60/.127mm Ohno Continuous Casting copper center rope6x60/.127mm Oxygen Free Copper ropes helically spiraled around the OCC center conductor
The sleeper of ALL TIMES IMO are the Radio Shack 14ga speaker wire. The trick is to tie both ends of cable together "shotgun" So one run of two wires makes one run of cable. If you are handy separate the wires and weave a Litz configuration [ 4 wires ] for each leg. Try them cheap enough and you may be quite a happy camper. charles
I was settling in on Anti-Cables and then saw the posts about them being "magnet" cables. What does this mean and why is it bad?Any other good options around that price range? Looks like Coze Cables aren't taking orders anymore. Darn.David
