The Paul Speltz Anti-Cables seem to be all the rage at the moment with Maggie users. Supposedly very neutral, transparent and not very expensive. I have taken a slightly different approach with my 3.6s. I have found that warm and musical components in every part of my system seem to work best with the Maggies, especially in taming the top end. Currently, I am using a 12' run of Cardas Quadlink 5c, bi-wired. I am also using Cardas interconnects and power cords. I have found that the Cardas line works well with Maggies because they are generally soft on the high frequencies and extremely musical in the midrange. Although I do intend to upgrade the speaker cables at some point, I do believe I will stick with the Cardas line. I previously used Audioquest type 4, Audioquest Midnight, and Nordost Solar Wind bi-wired. The Quadlinks are an improvement, but not the end of my own personal search. The Quadlinks provide good bass and a nice midrange, but are a bit rolled off on the top end; overall, I would say they provide a soft sound for the whole frequency range. I bought the Quadlinks used in your price range. As previously stated, speaker cables are on my list of upgrades for the future meaning that the Quadlinks are not the be all and end all of speaker cables as they are not the most transparent of cables, but do provide the musicality that I believe mates well with Maggies. I will also add that in my experience bi-wiring is not that important or that much of improvement with Maggies; in other words, I would suggest that you seek a single run cable of a good transparent musical cable in your price range as opposed to having your heart set on a lessor cable that must be bi-wired. Although my system has much room for improvement, I am extremely happy with the sound of my system at the moment and the 1.6s are a great speaker (I used to have a pair). Let us know what cable you eventually find works well with your Mags.
