WHF review Audioquest FLX-SLiP 14/4

Hi all, In the WHF review the Audioquest came very favourably against the other budget speaker cables and looks to have all the attributes I am looking for. Having looked at the speaker cable and the title (14/4) this cable looks to have 4 conductors as opposed to the usual two. Can the guys at WHF please confirm that it was the 14/4 that was tested, and was it tested in a Bi-Wire configuration.

Many thanks

Judging from the image it looks like it was terminated into two plugs, probably combining the two positive and two negative conductors I imagine. AudioQuest do also make a two conductor version of the FLX-SLiP.

Excuse me, so is it true or not? Smile  Does it make sense to make 2 terminations from 4 conductors? Will it improve sound? Do you have instructions how to terminate 14/4 with 2 plugs? Thanks!

I am in the same boat....

 

Want to try it.

 

But for single wire is better the 14/4 connection 2 by 2 or the 14/2?

 

 

Will the 14/4 sound better 2 by 2 than using it as bi wire one plug to each strain?

 

help please:D

A good cable, but i find the Wireworld Luna 6 speaercable better. More full bodied sound and sweet voices. Never shrill. Why not the Luna 6 speakercable of the year?

Wiring it 2-2 but using 4 runs is basically biwiring

I think that is likely the main attributor to it being the better cable - I reckon that gives it the edge in clarity that they say it has over the others

 

Not heard just commenting

 

I do know of an amazing Speaker Cable that has just come out - its far more expensive that this but its quite exceptional for the money.

Sorry, but can I check if the Audioquest FLX-SLiP 14/4 is effectively bi-wired or not, when using in a 2-2 configuration?

The reason I ask is that I'm keen on the MA BX2s, and WHF forbids me from bi-wiring them, yet the AQ cable sounds perfect.

Muchos gracias.
