The stuff is a big pain to work with especially when biwiring. I love the sound and the price, i'm not sure if smaller guage would work as well Bound For Sound thinks Lowes 6AWG sounds the best as evident by the equipment they use it with here is their system.
What's in the BIG RIG? (June 20, 2005)
The components listed herein are not so designated because they are, or are not, the basis for a Bound for Sound reference system. Nothing so profound or meaningful is intended. Instead, the products listed below are those that happen (by design or serendipity) to be in the Big Rig on the date above - it could change the next day (and sometime it does).
What this page does is let you see what's being auditioned at a given point in time, and therefore know what components are likely to be reviewed in upcoming issues. And as for reference pieces, the more times you see it here, the more likely yours truly feels it to be of special merit.
