    Default QED cables

    Hello,
    Im looking after a no expensive speaker cable, and I tought about the copper QED XT 40 speaker cable.This cable is only copper made, which I like.How would you describe the QED cables sound?Lively, laid back,whatever.

    Some QED cable is good some not so good.

    The Silver Anniversary for instance was regarded as a good cable back in the day and good value, everyone tried it.
    Over time though audiophiles hated it, describing it as bright and harsh ie: not particularly natural sounding.

    I had it too and actually didnt mind it then but that was a long time ago, in a basic set up - I've learned a heck of a lot since.

    The QED Silver Spiral I have is much much better and so it should be as it retailed at 31.50 per metre against 5.00 or so per metre for the Anniversary.

    Let us know your budget as there are loads of options out there and stuf recommended by the members here that is very good value indeed. Van Damme Blue series is one of those that comes to mind

    I agree with all that.

    Main system: MMs/ADCs/Low output MC's/One rare Japanese SUT/One scarce British phono stage/various tonearms/hefty Japanese DD TT and hefty Japanese BD TT and small British BD TT. 4 CD players/2 jitter buster/2 DACs/Valve buffer. TVC stepped attenuator or valve pre-amp or solid state pre-amp. Current dumping power-amp or either of two Class A SS power-amp or Class A EL34 valve monos or big Japanese (part Class A) integrated. Big dual concentric speakers/Smaller dual concentric speakers/Two way British compacts and full range speakers, amongst others. And too much more to list!

    If that's 2 x 2.5 metres you'll get some good stuf with a budget of 130.

    Lets see what recommendations come in
