    Default Next level up in speaker cables.

    I use Fisual Hollywood Dark Twist cables, recommended by may on AOS and think they are great value for money. What would you recommend that is a clear step up in quality but is not too expensive as speaker and amp are a considerable distance apart?

    There are few cables that are a true step up for sensible money. The Fisual stuff is superb and I used/use the S-FLEX regularly.

    Only recently have I found a clear improvement but it's not cheap.

    What gauge is you Hollywood?

    It's my own SPOTFIRE Speaker cable mate. As I say, it's not cheap but it's definitely better.

    Has the same materials as the SPOTFIRE tonearm and Interconnect cables. Just more of it! Lol
