hi guys, im in the process of transofrming a 5 channel setup to a 2 channel one. my system currently comprises of musical fidelity a5 pre, pass labs x5 multichannel amp (soon to be replaced with mf a5 if i can find one!) and cd player is sudgen cd21 series 2.
Currently the interconnects i hav is a quite cheap ixos cable along with van den hul the bay c5(connected from power amp to pre) and also have a jps superconducter but found the ixos to be less bright. in terms of interconnects im looking for 2 pairs that have a very smooth sound and fairly transparent with good bass. i do not want anythin that will excite the treble response. I will be buying second hand and a budget of around £50 each.
Speaker cables, originally i had chord company carnival bi wire, however was very bright with my monitor audio rs6 speakers, so i changed that to both the qed xt400 and eventually xt350. the xt 350 was the least bright of these.
however finally changed them to some qed original biwire cable that i had hanging around. again looking for the same smooth sound and good bass response.
Can u guys reccomend me both some ic's and speaker cables please with these characteristics?
