Home Speaker Asylum

General speaker questions for audio and home theater.


...wire and cables do make a difference, although there are diminishing returns, like with all things audio.

Cheap wire is not going to make your music sound it's best.

For me wire is the last component I try after my system is chosen. The differences are usually not dramatic but they can't be ignored.

There is decent wire made by good companies (AudioQuest, Cardas, Straight Wire, Nordost and many others) and better wire as you move up the price scale.

However, for best results, try some different brands and models in your system to hear what they do.

Try putting in a new cable, listen for a night and then switch back. Quick A/B testing does not often work at this level.

They do not all sound the same and may add the synergy you are looking for to your system.
