Which cables for EAD 8800Pro- PassX350- B&W802
I've finally completed (for the time being) my system. Although I've still got a random selection of <100$ interconnects in use and I'd like to swap them out for something which is in line with the components in use. I know the current selection is stifleing performance because I borrowed a pair of Quattro-Fils and it improved in every possible way significantly.
The system is used 70% music (female vocals, R&B, etc), 30%movies.
I need 5 runs of balanced interconnects for EAD8800Pro->Pass amps (x350 & x5)
Either going with:-
2 high quality (front L&R), 3 lesser (centre & rears)
3 high quality (front L,C,R), two lesser (rears)
It depends on how important you think cable matching the front three speakers cable chain is for sound stage coherence.
I also need three runs of some speaker cable for the front three speakers, B&W 802 (Matrix not Nautilus) and a 805 centre. The rears are hard wired into the walls with Nordost cinema line stuff and would be a major pain to replace.
Current shortlist for cables to audition are:-
Ric Cummins Pursang
Acoustic Zen Satori / Holograms
Nordost Quattro Fil, SPM speaker cables
I'm sure there must be more that should be tested, but I'm kind of at a loss where to start. I'd love to find the perfect cables for me within the next 3 months rather than spend 3 years searching through all sorts of average products.
I like a fast, detailed, wide/deep staged sound.
Any initial pointers would be very welcome.
thanks in adv.
