    I'm Chris.

    Default Speaker cables at about 60 per metre

    Can I have recommendations please.

    My main requirements are transparency, musicality, relaxation and sound stage.
    Forget hard hitting frequency extremes, graininess and fatigue.
    I am tending towards pure copper

    Strong Recommend for Morrow Audio cable.
    Exactly the attributes your wanting.

    Have their SP7 cable,
    but had ones elsewhere in the range that show the same sound signature too.
    best result for studio purposes are not best results for hifi purposes

    Get hold of CCC or TripleC cables, you'll never want anything else.

    I have OCC cables and they are a very good second place.
    I love Hendrix for so many reasons. He was so much more than just a blues guitarist - he played damn well any kind of guitar he wanted. In fact I'm not sure if he even played the guitar - he played music. - Stevie Ray Vaughan

    Not that type of CCC Barry.

    PC- Triple C is probably the more accurate description. Here is a typical ad:

    I think you're right Lawrence. Its a process that draws molten copper through a small orifice where it cools and solidifies into a wire. The single copper crystal that forms at the start of the process then propagates throughout the length of the cable to give a single copper crystal over the entire length.

    This eradicates a multi crystalline structure where every crystal interface is an obstacle to smooth electron flow. Can't remember what it was call back in the day - perhaps OHNO??

    Morrow cables are a PAIN during run-in, more than any other cable I've had. Interconnects, speaker cables and digital cables, all similar construction and all the same long burn in.
    So its definitely a real thing you need to get past with them,
    good you don't have that to get through!

    Good review here of the SP4

    Bad news, the shop that sold me the cable on E bay has lost it, possibly stolen!

    There are very few used Morrow cables in the UK but they have offered to make me a chord cable of my preference. I have been impressed with the Chord Clearway cable I have used in the past and would be happy with more but better of the same flavour. Any recommendation?
