    How high are the terminals on the speakers?

    So, a 10cm gap allows for the use of bananas

    As you can see, the cable is significantly thicker than the SPOTFIRE Interconnect!

    They are halfway up. Bottom of speaker socket to top amp socket is 65cm maybe slightly less. Leaves 35cm for 2 bends. so as long as the bend doesn't make them stick out a foot a meter might do. I don't like spades

    Ok, understood.

    Had a longer listen with these speaker cables in place now and am pleasantly impressed. Had some incompatibility between DCB1 pre and the XTZ so am now using the XTZ as an integrated which is a surprising improvement. That aside I can now hear that the cables really do deliver the subtle resolution required to make those little things that are so important work - like getting cymbals to ring and decay just right. The sound is very precise and 'tidy' (can't think of a better word right now). Bass resolution is excellent.


    Only drawback is that with their huge girth and fancy braided covers it does make it look like I've spent thousands on audiophile speaker cables which is a bit embarrassing. Fortunately I don't get many visitors.


    If you can live with that shame I highly recommend checking these cables out.

    Oh the shame!!!

    That made me laugh Martin.

    Yes, they may "look" fancy but it's all about the sound. It does take a few days to get your brain around the sound and as you say, when starting from a position of having decent speaker cables, the subtle differences take a bit longer to register. That's been a common statement since I started selling them but everyone has confirmed my opinion of these cables, which is all I can ask.

    I started from a position of bang average and the improvement blew me away. I'm still enchanted by the sound I get. I'm hoping you get the Krell back up and running soon, as the combination of DCB1>Krell will really demonstrate their ability.

    Thank you for the update and I'm really pleased they are working for you.

    Imagine the bi-wire version - a large octopus?

    Need to find an excuse for a quad wire.
