Analysis Plus Oval 8 Vs Acoustic Zen Satori


Hello All,
Maybe someone out there can help out??? With out getting into the specifics of equipement I was thinking about buying either one of these cables for my main system.(Speakers being used are a pair of B&W 805S)
When it comes down to it, which company makes better products, etc, etc. I have heard many positives about both products but I thought I would get a little more info from the Audiogon community. Thank you for taking the time to help out. Have a great holiday!

The local dealer handles both brands. When it came time to improve the speaker cables in my system I demo both models listed above. I opted for the Acoustic Zen Satori. I thought it was a warm and detailed sounding cable. Just for reference, I am using Martin Logan Aerius I's. I am also using Acoustic Zen cables in the rest of my system. The results are very ear pleasing. You also have a great Holiday Season!!
I owned BW 805S and i think AP cables are a great match.
Thank you for your ideas, suggestions, experiences etc. I am still undecided on which cables to buy. I think I will continue to do more homework.
I used AP and I'm currantly using Acoustic Zen Satori. I had both cables at the same time and did AB comparison. AP was to heavyweigth and definetely less airy, less spatioues than Satori. Satori is better balanced all in all. Better cable in MY SYSTEM.
I have heard both in my system and preferred the AP's. In my experience, they had better detail, balance and transparency. The AZ's also had a mid-bass emphasis that I did not care for. YMMV with the 805's.

Regards,
Would depend on your components and speakers. I've heard both and went with the AP, because they are so clear and a little more balanced. In my system, which has a tube pre-amp(CJ), a more mellow solid state amp(Belles 350A), and speakers which lean toward the warm side (Unity Audio Signature 1's), the AP's clarity was just what I needed

Satori Shotgun would be a better fit in my opinion. B&Ws like to be bi-wired with separate runs and that is the Satori Shotgun. I use these in my system with great results on B&W N803 with Acoustic Zen ICs. Tough to beat for what they cost, especially on the used market.
