Yes but surely using a 2" piece of speaker cable to loop is the same as having the jumper plates in? Unless you're telling me that due to the difference in the two conductors (jumper plate & speaker cable) there is an audible difference in using the two methods? I bought bi-wire, sounds exactly the same, left it bi-wired as I've bought it now and its supposedly better....
Yes, I am saying that. As for the difference between jumper plates an wire- I already posted a question which I got no sensible answers - Link
. I am pro biwire can tell fairly easily. I also use different cables for bass and treble to tailor the sound (Its interesting that if use different cables to bass and treble and swap them over you get a very different sound). Maybe now you are used the sound of your system , try it in a single wire mod and see if your are still satisfied.
