Duelund conversion to DIY Helix Geometry Cabling
Nice update and info Steve! Thank you.  
Does it matter the wire gauge used in interconnects?
Two VH Audio 18 gauge solid core sounds best. Many of us who have built these know first hand. Better than one 18 gauge on its own. Nicely extended top end. TFA on the negative for single ended or ground/pin 1 for XLR. This recipe just works. The ...

I will share here that I have made double helix RCA ICs and SPDIF cables for audio friends that preferred them to cables costing up to  $7800.  Not joking here. It really happens regularly.

You can build your 10 foot XLR ICs this wavy Ken. First, the double sounds best based on my testing and builds over the years. I have built some 400 sets of ICs over the past 4 years and taken the time to listen to all manner of conductors, gauge,...

Duelund 16 gauge sounds best in ICs within the Duelund family.     More full bodied and better fleshed out mids. I have also found wether you use VH Audio Airlok, Neotech etc... the thicker the better up to 16 gauge.   Shielding does close in the ... 
To Roon or not
Yes Roon and Qobuz has me listening to more music, new music, than ever before in my life.  I love Roon!

Wonder if Chris at VH Audio would consider making his solid core Airlock copper in a 12 gauge thickness? That would be the ticket in my estimation. I also think the bare copper will oxidize over time, but how much and to what sonic impact? Not sure.

Yes indeed @tvad. They make some monstrosities to be sure! Seems no Agoners own this speaker.

Great stuff! My guess is the 12 gauge with molded Teflon jacket in place would sound even better on your speaker cables.  I use 2-10 gauge conductors per leg in my speakers cables as an FYI. Sounded better than a single 10 gauge per leg.  These ar...

I am most interested in these, but would like to hear from owners. I called OMA and am even more impressed.  Yes they are expert in this area of speaker design.

Any owners out there that can comment on this speaker?

Steve, my mistake as I noticed you already mentioned the Neotech PVC option. Sorry!  
Duelund conversion to DIY Helix Geometry Cabling
Steve I am thinking your Neotech power cord experience has much more to do with gauge and voltage carried than the sonic qualities of the two brands of wire. I think if the VH Audio wire was offered in 12 gauge would likely sound even better than ...

I have been building ICs, USB and digital cables with the VH Audio 18 gauge solid core SILVER Airlock wire in place of copper and the difference is not small. In my system, and others of high quality, the sonic gains are substantial. The realism a... 
Equipment purchase that made you want to get off the Merry Go Round (good or Bad)
“When I bought my Silverline Bolero speakers I closed the book on that pursuit.” I loved my Bolero speakers and every time Newbee mentions them I feel a tug at my heartstrings. Great final speaker.
