This may only confuse you; I have ALL Syn. active ics. I bought the Res.Ref .5 speaker wire at the same time. I don't have any of your pieces but I do have pretty good stuff. I used the speaker wire for 6/9 mos. so it wasn't like there wern't enough miles-for breakin. I know they have since come out w/ active speaker wire; ain't tried that. All I know is that 1/3 the price wires sounded better to me.---I'm now using Celtic silver--- and I'm sure there is better. I just decided to get off 'that' merrygoround,for now.
