They do need an amp capable of good current delivery into 4 ohms.

I owned the .7's and loved them, just couldn't do them justice in my small place. Anyway, I used the Anti-Cables and found them just fine. I have also used Blue Jean Cables with pleasing results. Personally, I feel that there is a lot of, let's say, hyperbole out there about cables. I never felt compelled to go into the lunatic fringe with them. Anti-Cables are very simple, very stiff which some people like but I don't. However, many Maggie owners use them and are very happy. Oh, and the price is real world....
lak opened the door so I'll chime in with my experience. I recently bought a pair of MMGs which is in a room adjacent to the rest of my system which consists of two separate (and different) amps being fed by a single preamp. The "other" amp is running a pair of MLs in that room. The MMGs are connected to my amp via a pair of 20' solid copper 12 awg wire - certified for in-wall use, run through my basement and bought from Home Depot. Before doing this, I hooked them up to the amp using the wires I use for the MLs which are older but good quality 8' MIT cables. Aside from differences due to the room, I honestly can't say if the long wires hurt the sound. I think they sound great as long as a low gauge/thick cable is used. This is of course not a scientific A/B comparison so YMMV, for sure.
