Isn't a Red Kiwi a strawberry? Anyhoo, I agree with much of what you say here...BUT ISN'T THIS "PSEUDO SCIENCE"? I thought you were against pseudo science? (NOT that I think what you've discussed here IS "pseudo", but you seem to use that as a crutch to help your point of view when it suits you...it doesn't help, though...) I AM A SPEAKER DESIGNER, SO I KNOW A THING OR TWO ABOUT THIS: Biwiring is usually not worth the cost of the extra cable, but if the speaker comes with two sets of posts, you need to use a biwire cable. I AGREE, IT IS MORE IMPORTANT TO HAVE THE BEST CABLE POSSIBLE IN THE FIRST PLACE (since cable is in series with the signal's path, and thus HAS TOTAL AFFECT ON THE SIGNAL'S INTEGRITY...SCIENCE READILY VERIFIES THIS). The reasons many speaker designers don't provide bi-wire as an option is because INDEED, DIFFERENT CABLES BETWEEN AMP AND SPEAKER CAN AND DO CHANGE THE SPECTRAL BALANCE OF THE DIFFERENT DRIVER'S OUTPUTS. Not that I think Wilson Audio is great, but just ask David how he feels about biwiring. If I remember the quote correctly: "Why would we want the customer to screw with the spectral balance, after we spent the manhours to get it right"...It's not as if that isn't factored into the cost of the speaker, cause it is. I SAY IF THE SPEAKER HAS BIWIRING POSTS, THEN IT WILL ALWAYS BE BETTER TO USE A BIWIRED SPEAKER CABLE, because the binding posts have a huge signature on the signal! So, if you USE JUMPERS, YOU'RE RUNNING THROUGH TWO SETS OF BINDING POSTS INSTEAD OF ONE. And you have THREE sets of spade or banana connectors, instead of ONE. DON'T LET YOUR DEALER, OR ANYONE, FOOL YOU INTO THINKING THAT POSTS AND CONNECTORS DON'T HAVE A SIGNATURE. Even the best have one, AND IT'S MORE SEVERE THAN HIGH QUALITY CABLING...I've heard it myself, AND AGAIN MEASUREMENTS READILY VERIFY IT. I mean, even WBT's best posts are a partial brass alloy (I have several of these). Solid high quality silver spades might have the least signature of any connector, BUT IT'S STILL MUCH MORE PRESENT THAN THE BEST CABLING ALONE. I know Kimber recommends jumpers instead of two sets of cable for their Select series, BUT THERE ARE BETTER SILVER SPEAKER CABLES OUT THERE ANYHOW. In summation, jumpers are silly, don't use them!!
