RE: SPEAKER CABLE FOR ROTEL MONITOR AUDIO

I must admit that I am a bit of a Chord Company fan boy(although no commercial links) and I have found Rumour has worked very well on a number of set ups.

If you have a load of other Graham Slee cabling, you could try their Spatia speaker cable. I've not tried it myself but their are some very good reviews on this forum if you do a quick search.

Ignore the bell wire brigade and trust your ears!

 

Edited -Sorry, misread your other cables doh!  The Russ Andrews stuff is called Kimber!

Hi robg1976

I'll recommend standard 500 strand OFC speaker cable as I feel it'll be more then good enough for your system. Fwiw, I don't use anything more then standard 500 strand OFC speakers cables with Monitor Audio's reference Platinuim Series of speakers and with amplification such as Plinius Hiato, Naim NAP 250, Krell FPB600, etc.

All the best

I would get Van Damme OFC 4mm about £5 pm, several ex Rumour users think its better and its cheaper. You could try Tellurium Q Black thats about £50 pm. But probably too much for your system.
