Hi there, My system is currently ... Naim CD5x/Flatcap2x source... Harman Kardon 970 Amp... Paradigm Monitor 7 v4 Speakers. The current speaker wire is QED Mirco Speaker wire (copper, $7/m NZ). With my system, it is perhaps slightly bright on certian cds with the speakers, but not too bad. Im currently trialing the QED Silver Annivers. The regular price is $20 or $25 bi-wire ex demo (norm $40 bi-wire, so decent step up in price from original Mirco wire). The bass is a LOT tighter, but seems a tad light on bass. There is much more detail especially in vocals. Some tracks seem a bit bright however. Over all its a good improvement over the QED Mirco wire, and is much smoother. Im wondering what other wire is worth listening to first? Bi-wire is an option, but not that important. The HK970 amp can run A/B speakers though. Am thinking maybe silver wire could be a little bright? The next QED (really think wire) is $40/m for copper and am told needs banana plugs ($15 each)....
