Speaker cables for Harbeth monitors
I have the Compact 7ES-3 speakers and I found the Crimson Electronics speaker (and interconnect) cable to be a fantastic cable -- plus it is pretty inexpensive. See the Austin Hi-Fi website. If you can live with the blue cables they are great. I p... 
Has anyone heard the new PS Audio Perfect Wave?
