Best IC and Speaker Cable for DIY
I have tried Canare too. but the performance was not night and day with belden. Looking for several highend cable that can be bought by ft/spool. I will consider Neotech as their upocc is intriguing as well as duelund for its silver foil with silk...

yes I agree with the ringing of the non paper, but have you tried excels? They certainly dont hv common weakness compared to other nonpaper..hence my search yet on nonpaperAccutons cant go low unless the 6"-7"..even 5"one cant go as low as others ...

@shadorne: yes I understand what I'm trying to do and I'm willing to pay for it :D I wanna something non-paper, so anything like poly/carbon will do. paper is too laidback of presentation to my likings as non paper will do a clear straight forward...
