Thoughts on Clear Day vs Grover Huffman SC's?
I concur with what Mcondon wrote. The Clear Day Double Shotguns with jumpers are the best sounding speaker wires I have heard, and are a great bargain. I have stated this opinion many times on these boards, so I am beginning to sound like a shill,...

Duped again
