As rotaryphone suggest, use the speaker cables you have and fully break-in those new speakers.
What speaker cables are you currently using?
If you purchase speaker cables what is your price range?
Do you want Bi-wires or do you want to use binding post jumpers?
Knowing the above information would allow me to make some aditional good suggestions.
Looks like I won't be able to order the Clear Day due to illness by the owner...will check again in a month or so but not sure the dealer would take back the Audioquest wires.
"Thank you much for your kind words Fritz. Sad to say, I got sick again and have to stop making cables for a while. I'm hoping I'll be up and running in a few weeks though. So sorry I could not help now brother and God bless you, Paul

Message Body:Your Double Shotgun wires are definitely getting tons of love on Audiogon.
I have the Kef Reference 1 speakers installed today and they sound great. Time for the break in period. Also, I'm likely going to add at least 1 Rotel RB1592 power amp, 2X350 WPC. Depends on how well the sales year goes...might add 2 and dedicate to each speaker. Plus, would need a new Salamander AV furniture to better store the new gear. The BDI is 9 years old and staring to look that way... Plus, I'm resisting upgrading the power cords but likely will give in to the What If?... Need to wait for Paul to heal and then order Bi-amp Double Shotguns with a spade on one end & Bananas on other. there goes another $9-10k... Fun Time$$$
Congratulations @fritzjurg. Good to know that you like the KEFs. I have listened to them multiple times at audio shows. As far as the Salamander goes, make sure that they are not as tall as the loudspeakers+stands, unless you do not plan to position that stand between the speakers. Check out Cullen Cables or Signal Cables for power cord option.
Hopefully Paul gets well soon and make the cables for you. If you get a chance, please do post pics of your new speakers. Make sure NOT to use loud volume to break-in the speakers. Just use moderate volumes and you should be fine. In the meanwhile enjoy your system.
There is a Kef Owners group on Facebook and I posted the photos there. helpful group! Also, thanks for the tips milpai.
Congratulations on the KEF Ref 1s. I'll second milpai's recommendation of Cullen Cable for power cords. I'll also recommend Cullen for speaker cable as well.
About three weeks ago I added a Cullen Crossover ll power cord and Crossover speaker cable. They are excellent and a great value. I made a brief post with my impressions at the link. Good luck with your search Enjoy those new speakers.
