Speaker Cable : Low/Mid Priced Advice
This is the second time I'm posting for you....Go Kimber 8TC..Lots of lively music will flow out! Great bass too. Kimbers are more forward sounding therefore music will have more life in it. 
Speaker Cable : Low/Mid Priced Advice
Kimber 8TC. I have used these cables for a long time. I compared them to Transparent ML super, MIT 750CVT and Kimber's are definitely better. They are cheap too. Don't let the price fool you. Looks and price are deceiving. Go for it.

Does silver speaker wire sound bright?
Definitely go all silver. The miscnception of silver sounding bright is because most so called silver cables are only silver plated on the outside. These cables definitely sound bright. However pure silver cables are more relaxed and liquid soundi... 
Does anyone know...
They are called something like " tekna" available at Audio Advisor. 
Modify Audio Research to 220Volts
This can be easilly done by a certified technician. The transformer has extra taps that can be rewired for 220v capability. I had a ARC classic 60 110v that I converted to 220v for my dad abroad. Please do not attempt to do it yourself unless you ...
