B&W 805D : what speaker cables????
Receiver: Pioneer SC-LX82
Blu-Ray / Cd player: Marantz UD8004 plus Sony PlayStation 3
Speakers : B&W 805d / B&W ASW610 / B&W DS3
Recently upgraded to my 805D and I need to upgrade my cables, currently using my old Straight Wire Octave II.
The dealer who sold me the B&W 805 is recommending the XLO Ultra 12 biwire, I was planning to listen to them but I find the price a bit too steep, about US$790 or Euro610, for a 2.4 meter cable. Another dealer was recommending to me to use separate cables, one for high and one for low frequency, both by Van Der Hul, dont remember which types.
I am trying to get the guy I bought the speakers from to come to my house to make me listen to the XLO cables , always easy on paper very difficult to do it in real life. If they were really the best (always subjective and debatable), I would splurge on the Xlo, but ideally I am setting a max. ceiling of about US$500 - €400 for a 2.5 meter biwireable cable.
Any recommendations on some speakers cables? Even thoughts to share on using separate cables?
