RE: Speaker Cables for RX6 AV12?

For subwoofer cable I decided to go with the Canare LV-77S as it gets great reviews at a nice price!

 

For speaker cables I was set for the Van Damme Blue but but I am having second thoughts toward the Van DAmme UP-LCOFC.

 

In both cases I was looking at 2.5mm as I don't think I need 4 mm (fronts less than 1 meter away from AVR and Rears will be 10 meters away). Is 2.5mm enough or 4mm will be better?

 

Which one should I get out of these two?

Thanks

Go for the UP stuff. You will get away with the 2.5mm, but I'd personally go for 4mm for the fronts.

Hi,

 

I am looking at the following banana plugs:

Nakamichi 24k Gold or

GLS Audio Generation4 Locking Banana Plugs

 

Which of these would be best?

Also, for both cases, do I need heat shrink tubing or not? (These will go in the AVR and the Speakers as well)

 

For the RXFX I think I would need angle spade connectors as the banana plugs will be a problem because of the wall. I was looking at the GLS Audio Spade Connector. Anyone knows if the RXFX will hang on the wall fine with these kind of connectors? (I am worried that since it's exactly on the wall the connectors are too big and they will not fit!)

 

Thanks

QED Signature for a subwoofer cable - Seriously Great sub Cable - you wont be dissapointed thats a promise.

 

Whats your budget for the speaker cable?

If you want really great and I mean really great speaker cable - and I know it will work amazingly well with an LX86 and RX package then check out Graham Slee Spatia.  Its a lot more money than the £5 a metre stuff people have recommended but you get very high end performance from it and it will work very well with that system as I have tried it on 2 very similar systems.

 

You can get a free home demo - but be prepared to buy it
