I agree, they are very good.

However james couldn't make and finish them in a timely manner when he was single and not working on the new ALS speakers. He would never get that set Finished now.....

I have talked to Eric and told him of the attributes of James cables. I run them currently in my main system so they get a 2 thumbs up!

Re: Help me pick out some cables

Yep I talked to Wayne today and he was telling me about them. Might have James bring a set to Carverfest. I am wanting to try a few different types and see which one I like. After that I will probably sell off the others and stock up on my favorite. Might need to sell a kidney to get that full set of Shotguns though... :D :D

I have tried Doug's speaker cables too! Serious bang for the buck! My favorites were the Furez. They were pretty close to my Audioquest cables and my Audioquesst are not cheap!

Re: Help me pick out some cables

If you are going, you will be able to check them out at Carverfest this year. I'll be sending a set of our 9/2 regular, and a set of 12/4 Bi-wire speaker cables, as well as 2 pair of analog IC's by way of Wayne, to Carverfest. I had planned to karma these cables at the end of Carverfest to be given as door prizes. Not sure who to ask about that now. Anyone know who has taken over the planning since Tom left?
