    A good step up that may surprise you if you are not looking to break the bank.
    These cables are 12 AWG. great for tube amps and longer runs, they employ very high quality copper and have 0 micro phonics even laying on a hardwood floor near a subwoofer!
    I use it for the run inside my floor standers from the binding posts to the crossover for this reason. It is very transparent and not expensive.
    It is deigned for car audio but don't let that put you off .
    I made these for a second system, the cables I have now where made from a Sea Wolf Submarine 7 AWG silver Teflon , They are big and I have no idea what on that Sub they where used for but the guy who scrapped it said there was a lot of sensitive equipment removed and there where several of these wires in a long loom left behind.
    The cables pictured (coiled up) on the floor are Audison Sonus S212 made in Italy ,if I did not have the Sea Wolfs (pictured green with red and black leads I would use the Audisons.
    Check out the S210 below! 2.60 mm conductors.

    At E 7.50 to E 11.50 per meter it won't break your bank account. It is fantastic stuff to work with believe me, you wont have to use teflex to prevent micro phonics on a hard surface just terminate using the connectors of your choice. 11.meters S212 E 82.50 and S210 E 125.50. 5.5 meters per side I would go with 10 AWG but science suggests you can get away with 16 AWG unless you are using speakers with a 4 ohm load. . https://www.audioholics.com/audio-vi...er-cable-gauge WATCH THE VIDEO IT WILL ENLIGHTEN YOUR MIND ABOUT SPEAKER CABLES.

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