Bi Wire Cables vs Jumpers?


Ryan R610 monitors incoming and they are set up for bi wire...My speaker cables are Acoustic Zen Epoch.Choice 1 are the solid copper Cardas Jumper Bars,$45.00...Choice 2 is a new/used pair of Bi Wire cables(expensive) and choice 3 is 1 of the many cable jumpers ($50.00+)available like Nordost or VDH,Signal,Anti etc..,most of which are silver coated copper and stranded wire...Budget being a concern which way would you go?The choice can not in any way add harshness/brightness...Amp is 15wpc.EL84..Thanks very much..

IME, a shotgun bi-wire speaker cable will give you the best possible distortion less sound especially in high frequencies.

I do understand budget constraints, for now I would use the jumpers supplied with the speakers until you can save up for a bi-wire cable.

You can also experiment which configuration sound better by reading this article from Nordost. The diagonal configuration (fig. 3) is quite intriguing.

I would buy jumpers from Acoustic Zen. 
matching jumpers from Acoustic Zen if you cannot do a double run...
Great speakers freediver! I built a second sytem with a pair and I really enjoyed them but sadly I am selling it off due to space issues. 
Cables I used were morrow sp4 bi-wire and the sound was very good with no harsh or bright highs. Then switched to DanaCable onix ref mkll shotgun and used the stock numbers and that was even better. 
Another vote for AZ jumpers.  If you choose to try biwire later on you can continue to use the banana jumpers at the same time (not many people seem to do this for some reason -- I know not why).  Adding wire jumpers to my existing AZ Satori shotgun biwire setup made more of a difference in imaging, clarity, and tighter bass than going from single to biwire Satoris.  Of course YMMV, but just another option. 

Man the AZ jumper is $150.00..A friend just this mourning let me borrow a pair of Nordost Red Dawn II cables and I'm totally blown away at how much more they bring to my system over the AZ...
Wireworld makes jumpers in wires that match exactly their different speaker cables.
If a manufacturer puts biwire posts on the speaker, then they must believe it makes a difference.
I would contact Ryan and ask what cables they prefer for their speakers.
With my Vandersteen speakers, Audioquest is the brand the designer Mr. V. recommends.

"If a manufacturer puts biwire posts on the speaker, then they must believe it makes a difference."

I think if you add at the end "in how many speakers they will sell" the statement is correct.

Some speaker makers put the bi-wire terminals on because they think the market and their buyers expect that on a high end speaker.
Clear Day Cables Double Shotgun cables with their jumpers is an amazing combo.
Regardless if a manufacturer puts bi-wire posts on the speaker it doesn't mean the speaker will sound better bi-wired. It all depends on how it's internally made. I think you need to talk to someone that owns the speaker and has experimented with it regardless if its the manufacturer, dealer or private owner. I'm sure whichever way choose to go the speakers will sound good, just a bit better one way vs the other, just like one brand of speaker wire might sound better vs another. As I said before don't be in a hurry to buy something, use what you have until you have really researched this topic with owners of your new speaker.
+1 @snackeyp .

I used to have Signal Cable Silver Resolution bi-wires. But the Clear Day Double Shotguns with their jumpers was a whole new level.
You can try that with the  Signal Cable Silver Resolution too.
