I have audioquest FLX slip 14/4 single wired, ie. two wires into each banana plugs. Works really well.

Their G2 is more than good enough IMO.  I use G2 in my system and, having compared it to much more expensive cables (which I actually own), I think it is spot on.  Works well with their entry-level Evergreen interconnect too.

1- RP3/Elys2/White Belt/TTPSU - Apollo-R - Brio-R - Q100

2 - Spotify Premium - V90HPA - RCD965BX - 1010 - DM2/6 - DT770PRO

Thank you tino and matthew,

 

the price in holland is the same for the G2 and the 14/2. I think i'll order the 14/2.

cheers Dalwen

You can use either the 14/4 or the 14/2, but the 14/4 is better than the 14/2, unless you must have the thinner cable. The 14/4 has twice the bandwidth of the 14/2 - 2 wires go to each connector rather than just the one. The 4X14AWG 's will act as the equivalent of 2X11AWG . Just make sure your 14/4's are configured for single-wire, not bi-wire...

I am thinking of using the version of Audioquest cable that was given a best buy by What HiFi and wondered how it was wired.
Does anyone know for sure if it was 2 wires into each plug at each end and also which banana / Z plugs were used in the test.

My thoughts exactly. Double the bandwidth indeed. ROFL :rofl:

I'd say 14/4. I wouldn't get the 14/2 personally, and I have 14/4 cable here. They are supposed to be used for single wire use, not biwire...as I found out after much faffing (see what hi-fi review). Good cable for the money.

   If they do not differ in sound presentation .

  Then why do WHF bother to review any cables ?
