bi-wire vs jumpers

I'm sure the question has been asked before, but could not find it.
by bi-wire I mean a single wire terminated by four connectors at the speakers end.
if you had to choose, regardless of cost, which would you prefer, or which do you think would be more optimal in terms of signals reaching the speaker.

I was considering ordering the Crystal Cable's speaker cable bi-wire splitter instead of using jumpers.

what are your thoughts on this?
Generally, shotgun refers to a scenerio where two runs of cables are used when one run will do the trick. I'm curious to how it came up on a bi-wire thread too. I guess they are implying that instead of using two runs of cable per speaker one should be using four runs of cables per speaker. Or maybe Jgwilson is simply describing external bi-wiring, as opposed to internal bi-wiring, who knows.

Maybe Jgwilson will be kind enough to come back and enlighten us.
How does stripping an extra inch off the cable and running the same wire to both terminals differ from a jumper?
Henrly - functionally, it doesn't. I thought that was the point of Roscoe's post. Or at least, that's how I read it.
Add my vote to the "it depends" camp. You just have to try it and hear if it sounds better. To eliminate the cable variable, you can try the bi-wire cables in both single and bi-wire configuration. (For single, connect both leads at the speaker end to one set of posts and use your jumpers.)

If you want to get really finicky, you could run a three-way test: single-wired with supplied jumpers, single-wired with aftermarket jumpers, bi-wired. Not to mention testing to see if your old speaker cables are better or worse than your new bi-wired cables. Hours of fun to be had, if you're really dedicated.

I got better results bi-wiring with one pair of speakers, but better results single-wiring with another.
