    Default SPOTFIRE speaker cable

    Having recovered just enough to do some cabling, I have taken on a couple of orders for speaker cables, which will be completed before I get my thumb cut off and put back on in the right place!

    I thought it me be interesting to show you the lengths I go to!

    I currently have 20m of very thick cable stretched out and now have to find a nice neat way of cutting it up.

    Any suggestions

    Only kidding, I have some very useful cutters from my days as a sparky.

    Hopefully some more picks when the sheath arrives and it's all suited and booted.

    Hi Oliver,
    I'm looking forward to getting the Spotfire Speaker Cable and trying it out, watch you don't slip with the cutters
    or you might not need the surgeon to do the cutting

    It looks like it might be an endgame speaker cable with the spec. I just hope it sounds as good as I think it will.

    It's a B@stard to work with

    I am, Grant. My good hand is my right hand and I'm right handed.

    It's the lack of grip and thumb power in my left which usually holds the cables. I started soldering left handed, I had to re do it

    Listening already. Low levels ATM but the difference is very apparent.

    Not entirely fair to compare as the Fisual S-FLEX was only £2.50 per meter and still ranks highly for VFM.

    This stuff is over 10x the price so I'll be looking to get Jimbo back with his Chord epic twin for a fair fight.

    Finished!!!

    Finally managed to dress the cable as I wanted and do the last little bits of finesse. Taken me far longer than usual for obvious reasons but I'm really happy with the finish.

    These SPOTFIRE reference speaker cables will be residing here in my system. There are two pairs of these currently sold so fingers crossed, feedback will be sent in due course.

    I'd really love to explain what my impressions of these are but being the maker of them, it's a bit pointless. Well just have to wait for feedback.

    If you are wondering what the third black wire is connected to the Krell plate, they are the shield connection. You can have it on or off. Does the shield make a difference? I certainly think so but as usual, it may be different in every system.
