One of Berning's retailers, Frank Stuppel of FS Audioweb, has a Berning and Merlins in his personal system. Frank (owner) had the following to say about Maple Audio cables
"I have auditioned many fine interconnects and speaker cables in my personal listening system. I have not heard any cable that sounds better than the Maple Audio Works cables. The clarity, dynamics, and smoothness is everything that I would expect from a world class cable. At the price "an audio bargain".
Caveat is Frank now sells Maple Audio cables. If you would like more info on these cables feel free to e-mail me - I have Maple Audio cables and love them!
XLO Unlimited, the XLO is really special in my system, Atma-Sphere OTLs/Köchel horns.
I have not heard the Jaden from Ric Cummins, www.roomlens.com, but those that have say it's good.
Another option to research is the ZERO autoformer, www.zeroimpedance.com. This might very well be the best choice as it can provide the optimum impedance match for your speaker/amplifier, resulting in superb performance, and I MEAN superb.
I know that I am weighing in on this thread rather late however, I'll give it a shot. I too am using the David Berning ZH-270 amplifier and a speaker similar to the Merlin. May I suggest Jaden IC's and speaker cables that are made by Ric Cummins, www.roomlens.com
I have tried many different IC's before (Tara Labs, Coincident, Cardas, Kimber, Norodst Quattro Fil, Acoustic Zen Silver Reference, Silver Audio, Totem, Coincident, etc.), but my favorite is the Jaden because of the cable's superior tonal balance, detail, smoothness, bass control, and coherency. Since employing the Jaden's in my system, I've never desired to use another cable.
