RE: What speaker cables ?

I would look at changing your amp. before spending loads of money on cables which at best will only tweak the sound, Rotel have a rep for being a bit harsh.

RE: What speaker cables ?

As another poster suggested earlier, you could try a set of Tellurium Q Blues - this cable should live well with your somewhat harsh amp.

Good cables do not just "tweak" the sound - you should notice a significant difference (but there might be a settling-in period, as with audio equipment) - if the improvement isn't there, return it.

Rega Elex-R integrated amp, Rega Apollo-R cd player, Kef LS50 speakers, Rega Reference Power leads, Solaris Remote, TelluriumQ Green speaker cables, TelluriumQ UltraBlack Interconnects.

First off my amplifier does not sound harsh at all, give it a listen and then make your comments. I just want new cables, hence i have had these for a few years now with cheaper equipment, therefore i just wanted an upgrade in cables, and people are instantly telling me how to do this and that ... i just wanted sugestions on what cables was good, not peoples personal opinions towards using better cables, rather than standard electrical cable, i have some cheaper cable aswell and i have tested it and there is a HUGE difference.

You could give Audiquest Type-4 or AudioQuest GO-4 a try.
