sorry to tell you my Harbeths benefited more from bi-wire than the three jumpers I tried.

Good call, Awe-d-o-file. While I have no experience of a Harbeth loudspeaker, but I bet their designs are best served by the use of bi-wire cables vs. jumpers. A jumper no matter how good is an adapter, with all the caveats of an adapter. IMO, it's almost a disservice to offer bi-wire capable binding posts with brass straps as default. It's a very weak link in the signal chain, and unacceptable to many audiophiles after discovering the benefit of bi-wiring.
My gosh going bi-wire would be a budget killer. I got a good deal on Auditorium 23 speaker wires it's not something I would look forward to replacing bi-wire.
I do respect your input am willing to keep an open mind it's the cost, ouch!
Finding another run of Auditorium 23 speaker cables, or buying a new set of bi-wire cables is a typical upgrade path, nothing too drastic.
FYI - 3M length of Auditorium 23 speaker cables with bananas on US Audio Mart now.
If you want a real tonal treat, try double runs of NOS Western Electric 10ga wire or Duelund 12ga stranded tinned copper new stock. Neither is too expensive.
Have used Auditorium 23 in the past. Very nice. I now use Western Electric and Dueland. Great stuff. I use Western Electric 16 gauge. It is becoming hard to find. The Dueland is readily available
