Audioquest flx speakercable, Nordost or Van Damme 2,5 mm?

After changing my speakers and their position my speakercable are too short. I have now 2,5 mm copper. Van Damme 2,5 mm copper aren't expensive, but also the Audioquest. Nordost isn't cheap. My system: Marantz pearl lite with cd 6004 and Kef R500.

But can you say that the audioquest, Nordost or the Van Damme sounds better? What are the difference? I find What Hifi hasn't always right. For example; I find Atlas cables lifeless and dull. My very cheap Wireworld Terre 6 sound much better.

I bought some Audioquest FLX 14/4 to replace my Chord Carnivals.Well I have put the Chords back they sound a lot better the Audioquest changed the music as I know it so out they came and I am back to the sound that I prefer.Sometimes better to leave well alone if it sounds right

im finding that the audioquest is a little harsh for me and thinking to go back to the chord,i do love the chord.but saying that you can see why it got 5 stars it is good,better then qed.the audioquest is a lively wire and good at eveything hi lows and mid but for me its very in your face if you no what i mean.

2.5 should be fine, I prefer the 4mm myself, use the 2.5 for my rear speakers but may change this when the room is re vamped.

I've always been very pleased with QED speaker cables. Suggest that you try QED Silver Anniversary XT
