Why not take pic's as you are making the cables prior to posting?

I did a comparrison test on the DIY cables. Sources included McIntosh MC 206 6 channel amp, McIntosh MX118 preamp, Meridian 508 CD player, Thiel CS 2.3 loudspeakers and Velodyne F1500 sub crossed at 80hz with volume at 9 (5 oclock is maximum)
My current speaker cables are Monster M1. These sound good and have lots of bass even with sub volume down. I used all 6 channels for ease of comparring 3 sets of cables for two channel. I used the Monster M1, cheapest Monster, and the DIY. The cables could be changed quicker via speaker end with the 6 channels. My ranking would be as follows-
The M1 seemed to have too much bass,and bass is not a problem with this setup/the DIY cables seem to open the soundstage up. Cables do sound different,I prefer my DIY at least for now.
After living with my DIY cables for a week I did notice the system sounded a bit thin. I connected the DIY on the left speaker and the old Monster M1 on the right. Imaging seemed better as did bass on both sides.Don't know why. I switched both to M1 cable and now I think I prefer it to the DIY. These cables are close but the M1 gets the nod.
