RE: Magnepans and speaker cables again

I used Anticables for quite awhile. I then changed my amplifiers (biamp) and was able to use balance cables. When I got the 3.7i, I no longer needed the active XO and went back to unbalanced cables. Being a dyed-in-the-wool cheapskate, I decided to try 16 AWG magnet wire. The cost was about $12 for a 8 oz spool (~63') which was enough for 2 sets of 15' cables. I do not terminate but just use bare wire and clean with Deoxit every few months. I never compared 12 AWG to 16 AWG but I was totally happy with the DIY.
I don't understand those guys who spend 3 or 4 figures on cables. For $12 you can decide for yourself.

I married the perfect woman - the downside is that everything that goes wrong is my fault.
