I’m don’t think that his anything out there
In the price range can beat this wire!
12 gauge for speakers
16 gauge for Intocsonnectors
I might have said the cabling of RCA interconnects matters so little, that one could use lamp cord instead of coaxial cable. I guess this is proof. Now on to the coat hanger listening tests...
I would reserve large-gauge unshielded RCA interconnects for the correct application:
I am using Duelund DCA16GA for speaker cables and Duelund DCA20GA for interconnects. I tried 16GA interconnects and preferred the 20GA. The sound was cleaner with the 20GA.
I just bought a pair of Duelund RCAs from Acoustic BBQ (Grannyring) on A'gon for use with my new DAC (I think my old Kimber Timbres are overly bright and underly focused). I bought the 16 ga double run version (two sets of 16 ga conductors per side = 4 runs total..guess that means they are 8ga?). They are terminated with the KLEI Perfect Harmony plugs, which seem to grip the socket like a...well, imagine a good metaphor. They do sound great so far, especially through headphones where the additional detail in digital music I've been listening to for decades is pretty astonishing. Of course, a lot of that is the DAC itself, but as they say, "it all matters." At the prices he charges, hard to do much better.
I plan to do some A/B testing with a pair of Grover Huffmans that I have in my system. Should be interesting.
