Congratulations on your speakers. I had the same speakers before and I love the MIT Oracle 2.1 on them. I tried many brands before I settled on the MIT.
Thanks for your response, Nick. I am looking at the Oracle V2 and V2.1. My friend who has a pair of V2 said the V2 is actually better than the V2.1. I wonder if that's true. Also, do you know if I should buy the ultra wide band or just the wide band, and if I should get sigle wire or bi-wire? Please advise.
Cardas makes very good jumpers that aren't very expensive. As to cables I like very neutral cables. I liked the previous line of AudioTruth very much. The last version of Clear was excellent--I still use it in my reference system. The cable that I've listened to lately at one of our dealers that was considerably better than many of the others was Tara the One. I haven't heard their other cables and I think the One may be more expensive than your budget. It's possible some of their others would be worth checking out. Kubala Sosna is another one probably worth checking out as well. I will say that my cable experience is limited and working with a dealer that has a good selection would probably be a wise move.
Is the importancy regarding speaker jumpers, especially if you need very short ones not a bit exaggerated? For my speakers I just need 1.5 inch jumpers. I want to use bare solid silver wire for it. Is this wrong? Should I despite the short length use 6 inch long jumpers from a highly esteemed cable company (terminated with spades or banana connectors)? I think this is a bit overkill, don't you think?
