I recommend Naim NACA5 cable with Naim's own amp connectors (supplied in your Supernait box) soldered on.

Either that or Chord Carnival Silverscreen (actually copper cables with no silver despite the name) for £6 per metre. (Again with the Naim amp connectors soldered on preferably.)

Chebbby, thanks for your advice, Do you think that with silver in it would be a better choice and how good do you think are those NACA5 cabels for a AV receiver?

I will repeat...

"Either that or Chord Carnival Silverscreen (actually copper cables with no silver despite the name) for £6 per metre."

Chord Carnival Silverscreen has pure copper conductors and silver coloured foil screening inside a translucent outer jacket.

(I really, really wish Chord had chosen a less confusing name!)

The Spendors aren't bright speakers and I've found that the Chord Odyssey 2 works very well with them. The Naim cable has to be the safe bet; see if you can demo some.

The oddy 2 is a very good cable, and so is the atlas hyper 2. The atlas is all copper and the oddy is silver plated copper.

I just changed from the oddy to atlas hyper bi-wire as it is all copper, so maybe the hyper is good for the spendors.

I think sticking to Naim's NAC A5 is the best bet. I believe that it's swings and roundabouts if you switch to other cables - you might gain in some areas but lose out in others.

+1 for the odyssey 2

Well i find the odyssey loose in the bass compared to the NacA5... tried them both on several speakers with the Snait... and always preferred the Nac!

I wouldn't lose any sleep over speaker cable. The Silverscreen will be fine.
