    After a bit of discussion, the E bay seller has substituted a new 2m pair of terminated Chord Epic X cables for the same money so I'm pleased with that. Reviews suggest my original requirements should be met.

    I ditched my Chord Reference speaker cables for QED Genesis Spirals last year, they have been around a while and not that expensive, got better bass control, a more open sound, resulting in improved soundstage and clearer detail.
    Listening is the act of aural discrimination and dissemination of sound, and accepting you get it wrong sometimes.

    Analog Inputs:
    Pro-Ject Signature 10 TT & arm
    Benz Micro LP-S, Michel Cusis MC, Goldring 2500 and Ortofon Rondo Blue cartridges
    Hitachi FT5500 mk2 Tuner

    Digital:-
    Audiolab 8300CDQ CDP/DAC/pre-amp
    RaspberryPi/HifiBerry Digi
    Buffalo NAS Drive

    Amplification:-
    AudioValve Sunilda phono stage,
    Krell KSA-80 power amp

    Output:
    Wilson Benesch Vector speakers
    KLH Ultimate One Headphones

    Cables:
    Furutech AG-12-R4 High Performance Phono Cable
    QED Genesis Silver Spiral speaker leads, & links


    I think I am nearing audio nirvana, but donít tell anyone.

    Not sold unterminated by the meter (or foot!) but since I got my Acoustic Zen Satori I've not felt the need to change. About £60/m second hand terminated.
