Greetings from Indonesia,
what do You guys think the more match speaker cable between Canare 4S11 (a lot of good review) and Mogami 2921 (can't find the review but have a great experience with IC like 2534, 2552) for my system:

PC Soundcard (Lynx Two A) - DIY Stepped Attenuator - Rotel RB1080 - PMC TB2S+

Thank You

I have tried the Canare out of curiosity, and I kept it for 4 months in my system... I was disappointed and put back my Monster Pro Link 1000 last week; just one run with the jumpers provided by the speaker manufacturer.
The difference is appreciable and after more than 15 years in the hobby, after having tested cables after cables on a variety of gears, Monster always come back... To me, it is the best value.

After a week of comparison I choose Mogami 2921, sound smoother, and more extend in the low area than Canare 4S11, Canare have the excitement in the mid-high area tahn Mogami, but in my system I think Mogami is more suitable & preferable. Built quality is on par, but Mogami is more flexible and easy to route/bend, Canare have more stiff jacket. When soldering the tips of the cable (I don't use any plug) the Canare inner jacket is melting more than Mogami.

Thank You all for the input and opinions.

I have no direct experience of either star quad cable, however, the Canare cable features a PE dielectric, while the Mogami cable features PVC dielectric. Based on that factor alone, I would opt for the Canare cable since PE has a lower dielectric constant than PVC. Additionally, since a star quad cable tends to have higher capacitance than say for example a twisted pair, the sonic impact of such capacitance would (at least in theory) be more benign via PE vs. PVC. Furthermore, unless the Mogami is actually a sonically superior product, the Canare cable is the lower priced option for otherwise similar pro audio speaker cable products.

During our testing of different Mogami interconnect cables, we also auditioned a few similar Canare models. In each case, the Mogami was the superior sounding cable.

Iíve used Mogami bulk length interconnect cables for non-critical DIY applications that require *very* long runs and found that I fully appreciate the price to performance ratio and easy cable routing. However, the Mogami interconnect cables feature a PE dielectric, while the Mogami speaker cable in question features a PVC dielectric, so they are quite different animals. One should compare the PVC Mogami speaker cable with a PE cable such as the Canare speaker cable for a qualified opinion. I can only postulate with a disclaimer about the topic.

are not that expensive. Then you will know which one sounds best in your system. Please report back your experience. Good luck!
