Alpha Core Goertz MI-2.
I'll chime in a plug for Mapleshade (Clearview) Golden Double Helix, though I'm currently using the plus version. Quite natural sounding, and a great bang for the buck. I doubt you would find a 14 to 16 foot length on the used market, so you'd have to have them custom made (8 and 12 foot pairs are stock). Still should be well under your $600 budget.
While you are at it, try some of their recordings....pretty impressive for digital.
I'm running the MC275 with VonSchweikert VR4JRs and liked the Analysis Plus Oval 9s considerably better than the Kimber I previously used. However, I took a big step up when I replaced the APs with JPS Labs Superconductor Petites - more dynamic, better bass, imaging and detail, plus an effortless sense of having a clear, open channel to the music. You might be able to demo and then buy if you like from Usedcable.com. JPS's Ultraconductor and Superconductor FX are also superior to the other cables mentioned IMHO.
Paul Speitz- anticable.com, see the website, buy a set of speaker cables for $10.00 a foot, 8 feet =$80.00. Treat yourself and have them terminated with banana's.
Pour your favorite drink, find your favorite chair, pull your reference music, and sit down, proceed to have a smile on your face the size of a Cheshire Cat.
If you are not grinning like an idiot because the sound is really that good, or the small amount of money you paid, return them for a full refund.
It is the audiophile's no brainer trial of the future of reasonable priced cables that will make your socks go up and down. Guarenteed. Go have some fun, you deserve it.
Thanks for all the responses, I will read some reviews on the recommendations.
Rnm4-Your post made me laugh. $600 being cheaper cables, I know its a little crazy but I was wanting to spend $2000. So 600 bucks is cheaper...
Alpha Core Goertz MI-2 got recommended a few times. What can i expect to hear over my Kimber? Also I have WBT topline bananas, how easy are these to terminate if I bought bulk?
I was hoping to get a Nordost recommendation, does Nordost not strut its stuff till you go further up the line?
I am really impressed with a 14 foot run of single Clear Day silver solid core.
The music that was trapped in my Tannoy Arden, Cary Cad 300sei system is now free at last.
The bass is also phenomenal!
And I still have 99 hours and 45 minutes left before Paul says they will sound their best.
"vonwaffen" was a real professional to deal with and his before during and after sales follow up was great.
So if you feel that only one of the "fatty" cables that are priced like a car is the only cable good enough to play with your speakers then good for you.
But for the curious and not so well healed, give these a try, you may be as impressed as I am.
