Hi poldo,

Try to audition Tellurium Q black speaker cable if it's within your budget Smile

System 1: MF AMS 35i / Focal 1028be / Electrocompaniet EMC 1UP / MIT cables

System 2: Laptop / Chord gem / Rega Brio-r / KEF ls50 / TQ black / Sennheiser momentum  / Qobuz

Sorry poldo I'm not sure what's the conductors are made of as it does'nt say on the description. But IME it simply outperforms the Naca5(copper) and Chord epic(silver-plated copper) I used to own Smile

Right now i have the ocos, chord silverscreen, epic and signature cables on loan. 

I must say i prefer the ocos, chords are too bright.

Hi poldo

I'll feel that you should also consider using standard 500 strand OFC speaker cables.

All the best

RE: speaker cables + analogue interconnect

I have bought the Ocos speaker cable, very good cable love it.

Chord cobra plus does a good job, but could I better it by another cable?

Amp exposure 3010s2 - dac exposure 2010s2 speaker pmc 22.

By the way Exposure - PMC is a great match, shame WHF never reviewed the new exposure range.

RE: speaker cables + analogue interconnect

I don't know if I can help you but OK here's my try.

Have owned Chord Carnival and Chord Crimson speaker cables and interconnects. I was very pleased with it, especially for the money, they were sold at a good price. The sound was nice and easy I think, nothing wrong with it.

Later on switced over to Wireworld Oasis 6 cables, that I use still, for speaker and interconnect. Sound characteristics were not very diifferent from that Chord cables. But the level of performance is simply two steps up! 

I can't tell you how it will work in your ssystem, because I don't know exactly your equipment. But in my system (Roksan cd and Arcam amp with Sonics speakers) they function wonderfully :rockout:

So maybe you can give it a try.
