I have been using Vandersteen speakers for a while and I can confirm that it is best to bi wire them with 2 separate runs of cables. With other speakers it can be a tweek (at best) but on Vand it is very easy to hear. Just to put things into perspective for you, I can tell you about my first experience biwiring Vand speakers. I have a pair of TARA the 2 single run on a pair of wilson's in another room. They sounded pretty good but I wanted to biwire so I tried a run of Audioquest Mont Blanc internal biwire. The AQ were less than half the price of the Tara but sounded much better. I called AQ to ask them a question regarding their spade connectors and they suggested that I buy 2 separate runs of CV-8. That saves me even more money and they swore it would be better than the more expensive AQ I originally asked for. I had no reason not believe them since they were making the sale either way. As luck would have it, they made a mistake and sent me 2 runs of type 6; (retail price $200 for each run) which is their best bulk cable. $200 only because it was professionally terminated. Huge improvement over all the other cables I tried. Had I not already paid for the CV-8, I would have just kept them. Once they fixed the mistake and sent me the CV-8, there was another improvement (not quite as big but still noticeable.) Had I not tried this myself, I would never believed that it would make such a big difference. Hope this info helps you out in your decision.
