I'm using the older Morrow speaker cables (don't remember the model #) and prefer them over any other speaker cables I've tried. And I've tried a lot. I also highly recommend their ICs.

Dear Dopogue, I appreciate your affirmation. As I continue to burn in the cables, they just get better and better. The soundstage has absolutely exploded,the top frequencies are super extended and sweet. The cables goes very deep and remains articulate, and the midrage is just so "right" sounding. I am hearing more music than I realised I had (where did that come from?). I think I really found something here that maybe others may try. I think I will check into their IC's as well, after having a bad experience with PNF. I did not like their balanced ICON interconnect and they refused a refund, even though it was a standard length. Buyer beware with PNF!
I am curious if anyone in the DIY camp has experimented using stranded copper for the hot(red)lead and solid core silver for the return(black)when venturing into speaker cable designs?
If it is not a good idea I would appreciate the reasons why, and I would like to know if it would harm my amplifier.
Thanks in advance,there are things I like about both metals, and would like the best of both worlds.
Lacee, while there is no harm in using different material in the separate legs of the speaker cables, there is no real 'rationale' for doing so, since the current is alternating and not concontinuously 'flowing' in one direction as the terms 'lead' and 'return' imply. The current goes 'back and forth', so it doesn't make any difference what material is used in the separate legs. Which also explains why there is no 'direction' of the signal.
Thanks for the encouragement.
I just bought a pair of Red Dragon amps for my Tannoys and didn't want to do any harm to the amps.
There is an improvement, more fullness to the sound now than when I ran just thin solid silver.
Doubling up on the silver and using it for the neg run and some cheap copper wire really helped things.
I think I would like to try some nice solid core copper for the pos run.
