I will be upgrading my speaker cables. I will need about 30m of biwire cable or 60m of single run cable. Im looking to spend, well, not much at all. but if the benefits are big, might consider a bigger spend. both my fronts and my rears are biwire, which I want to take advantage of, Q acoustics 1050s and 1030s respectively. And the 1000C centre, not biwire. Also, would like terminations (nana plugs or spades) but not willing to pay the rediculous amount QED charge.

Why not go for the QED cable but terminate the cable yourself? it is a very simple process and you save a fortune in the process. I use Van Den Hul CS-122 and terminated all of it with banana plugs it really is quite easy. You may also find that you save money by buying one long length to your total needed then cutting it yourself,

I got a great deal buying my Van Den Hul cable that way. But i think in the price bracket that you are looking in you will find it hard to get much better than the QED SA.

Yes no reason why the conductor would be poor if it's a good purity of copper.

But the interesting thing about the Anti Cables is their arguement about the thickness of the cable cladding or dialectric. They say that in having almost none, you remove the capacitance effect of the cable and totally clean up the sound.

They sound pretty convincing. Enough for me to order them when I one day get my power amp for bi-amping my front 3 channels.

That will look lovely going all around your room, not exactly the most flexible or cable tho is it. Think I will stick with my Van Den Hul.
