I recently switched from Monster M1.5 speaker cable to Anticables 3.1. The things I noticed most on my M3S were increased bass and dynamic range.

I just received the silversmith Fideliums.  They were a little lean the first hour or so but really opening up now.  They are a very thin wide ribbon foil and use no connector, the speaker foil itself is the connector.  We will see but so far they are very revealing and the micro details and trailing of sounds to the back of the soundstage is exceptional.

I tried many speaker cables, in the end, the ones that work magic with the M3's were Analysis Plus Black Mesh Oval 9's. Really brought balance to the sound with a terrific bottom end finally. I've kept them to date. Audio Envy is updating their speaker cables and Cap said they really sound great so much so that he did not need to use a subwoofer with one speaker he tested them with.

how do you connect the wide foil to the binding post?  roll it up into a tube and stick it into the bare wire opening and then screw down on it?

Gently fold them into a "U" shape, slide the exposed square conductive pad with "U" shaped slot onto the binding post, then tighten the post down onto the flat conductive pad. Works like a charm. If the posts are really close you end up with a side by side "UU" shape, black/red. They self insulate from each other with a film, so that's not an issue.

I just upgraded to Cerious Cables and am really enjoying the improvements in tonality over the Audio Envy’s I have been using.

Hi, I have M3 Sapphires and currently use Kimber 8TCs at a three meter length. 
No one in my household noticed as I switched from Blue Jeans, Mogami, to
Kimber, but I can’t complain!

I should have mentioned that my M3 sapphires are powered by a Devialet Expert 220 Pro.

Now using Supra Classic 6.0. 9 gauge works well for my 22 and 24 ft. runs. I have some anticables 2.1 for sale if anyone interested...

7.5ft run of Furutech Alpha 36 DIY cable (using supplies from VH Audio). Prefered them to 8TC and Wireworld mini eclipse.
This is for X3

With my X2 I’m using Audioquest Robin Hood Zero and Bass - 4 individual cables. Sounds better than anything else I’ve tried but as always YMMV.

I have been using MIT for the last 5 years, but when I switched to Spatial M3, they didn’t seem to make as much of a difference as with my previous speakers.
