Which speaker cable for upgrade
I'm sure this has come up before but I'm ready to address my next upgrade which will be speaker cables. My hi-fi store is pushing me towards Kimber Kable, the 4TC series. I presently use Monster XP Clear Jacket speaker cable. My speaker runs are as follows: Left main 30', right main 10', center channel 24' and surrounds I will not upgrade. This is an unbalanced set up and can not change the receiver location. All B&W loudspeakers with a Rotel RSX- 1057 A-V 5.1 receiver.
My goodness, there are so many brands out there to choose from (Kimber, Monster, Tara Labs, Nordost, Shunyata, Acoustic Research, Audioquest, on and on). It's overwhelming and it's an area I haven't studied much on but I'm about to. Right now the Monster is serving me well. I like to feel the bass and subwoofer in my bones. I don't want to upgrade to a more polite sterile sound. Just the opposite. Warm, good punch and slam yet improved soundstage and detail. What would some of you recommend? What are the differences in these brands? I listen to a lot of smooth jazz (Ritenour, David Benoit, Larry Carlton, Norman Brown, etc) classic rock, blues, a lot of Van Morrison, Jackson Browne, Joni Mitchell, Steely Dan, etc.
I shop at two B&W dealers. One pushes and sells Monster and the other Kimber. The first one had been selling Kimber but changed brands. Don't know why.
I'd like to ask the forum which one of these brands would bring what I'm seeking to the table? The Kimber 4TC is $6.00/ft. If I go with the Kimber at $6.00/ft, I will not bi-wire. Can't justify the cost. Thanks much.
