Two separate runs of AQ Type 6 or 8. If you can afford it, two seperate runs of AQ CV 6 or CV 8

I was a Transparent fanatic until I was forced to use a MIT MH-750 I had laying around to replace a High-end Transparent ($3k) on my right B&W 800n.
To make it short....ALL OF MY CABLES (speaker, interconnect, power) are now MIT.
I never really bought into the difference a cable could make, but since I had everything else high-end, I just had to do it. When I put that MIT 750 on my right speaker...it simply sounded about 25% better than my left. Just more refined and clearer.
I just got a pair of van den Hul D-352 speaker cables today and I have agree with williewonka. They are open but not bright, great bass response with tremendous depth and soundstage.
The VDH are replacing a set of high capacitance Alpha Core Goertz cables which sounded great for the most part but I could swear there was a bit of high frequency ringing caused by the high capacitance.
With the exception of the digital cable, I'm running all van den Hul.
My Vandsersteen 1C's always got along quite well with AudioQuest Type 6+ cables, and the sound of music was sublime. Then I switched to Paul Speltz Anti-cables, and the improvement was tremendous. A layer of haze that I never even knew existed was simply wiped clean when I switched over to the Anti-cables. It was quite a revelation !
Jambalya - welcome to the VDH club :-)
I've had my D352 on my system for many years and with each upgrade they still allow the improvements to be clearly heard.
I have to wonder exactly how good the resolution on this cable is. Certainly my system doesn't appear to be near to its limit
I also use their...
- D102 mkIII and also find them very transparent and open.
>>> also very low capacitance
- THE NAME - as a digital link - never missed a bit
I am fortunate to have a VDH retailer that sells bulk cable - so all of mine are DIY - except THE NAME, which was the first interconnect I tried - the rest is history!
Back to the music...
