A double-run of Kimber 8-TC worked nicely with my NHT 3.3's,

I personally work for an audio/video store. We carry NHT was one of our speaker lines. With fine speakers like these you wouldn't want to use anything less than matching quality. We use Rara Labs speaker cable with our NHT 2.9. Here are some of the Tara Lab cables I would recommend: 1) Prism Bi-Wire Retail $170.00 8ft pr (good performance) 2) RSC Prism 1000 Bi-Wire Retail $290.00 8ft pr (better) 3) RSC Prism 1800 Bi-Wire Retail $700.00 8ft pr (best) I know this might seem crazy for spending that kind of money on cables. But cables are what get from Point A to Point B. If that isn't any good what is. Just my own personal opinion. Have any other questions feel free to email me.
I promise you you would NOT be able to tell the difference with the Tara Labs cable and the pure copper wire I recommended.I also speak from experience.I was given a pair of the world's best speaker wire from a 10,000 dollar audio research system and I cannot tell the difference.It would take a highly trained ear to tell ANY difference. 89vett
I have done a/b comparisons using my cheap Esoteric Audio solid core copper wire speaker cables and expensive nordost red. The difference was very obvious using my high quality components, and barely perceptible using my midgrade components. I have also done a/b comparisons of interconnects of similar cost, and could perceive noticeable qualitative differences. The conclusion I came to is that cables are well worth their cost, and that system matching is a truth. Another thing I found important was to put my components on a solid footing rack, and to separate the power cables on one side, and the audio cables on the other. The audio cables are spaced apart.
If you are looking for mellow cables with tight bass, my vote goes to Lat Internation. I agree with the earlier post the SS-800 are good and hard to beat at your price. Also the construction on lat products is top notch. I am surprised more people do not use their stuff. Guess it is not fancy enough!
YOU WANT TO MELLOW OUT YOUR NHT 2.9's?!?!?!? Didn't you know that these babies were a bright speaker to begin with?!?! Anyway, MIT's and Synergistic would be the way I'd go. Whichever you can get your hands on to try out. Kimber 8TC to bright. I had the NHT 6.6's (two 3.3's stacked on each side) with two pairs of (4 mono blocks) aragon palladiums and used Synergistic speaker cables (Sig #2's for the lows and Sig #3's for the highs). I also changed the NHT cones to Black Diamond Racing for a warmer sound. Happy Tweeking
