i use magnet wire in my setup. i didn't buy the "anti-cable" brand, mainly because it is only 12 guage magnet wire with terminations. the wire sells for about $3 per pound, give or take. there's no way i was going to pay $10 per foot, that's insane. i actually prefer it to most of the cables i've used--for the price, all of them. my other wires are currently mit terminator 2 biwires. they have magnet wire in them, but to me don't sound quite as open as the straight magnet wire. i also made jumpers out of the excess. far and away better than the stuff that came with the speakers. do yourself a favor--go to an electrical supplier and pick up the wire yourself, buy some screw on terminations and make your own. if you don't like them, it won't set you back more than $20 for the whole setup.
The Anti-cables are excellent and barely ousted my $1800 bi-wired set of cables. At $60 for a 6 ft. pair they are IMO the best buy.
Speltz' Anti-ics sound even better than the Anti-cables. The XLR version was $100 a pair for a 1 meter pair. The Anti-ics made my $4700 ics sound veiled and bloated in comparison.
If you want inexpensive highend solid core I seriously suggest you try a pair of ELF Audio Super Helix speaker cables.They are the same price as the Anti-cables but use better solid core OCC copper conductor's and much better termination's.They have bettered cables costing upwards of $1000.00 easy in my system.A friend of mine has the Paul Speltz Anti-cables and we did a head to head shootout and we both agreed that the ELF Audio Super Helix sounded better on all count's.Ernest is great to deal with and offer's a 30 day money back return policy.His website is elfaudio.net
