    Alright, I've played with quite a bit of speaker cable and I'd be interested to hear back from the group about what you think is the best for an HT system.

    I currently use Liberty THX certified 12 gauge 2 conductor from onecall.com. I also have some Monster Z3 cable in the mix, and I cannot hear the difference between the two.

    I saw that bettercables is now making speaker cable, and I also saw some silver speaker cable at homegrownaudio.com. Has anyone had any experienced these two cables, and what were your impressions of them?

    Thanks,
    Gareth

    Silver has approximately 6% greater conductivity compared to copper, an 'advantage' that is negated by going up 1 gauge on the copper.

    I use DH Labs Q-10 cables in my system (I also use 11 Homegrown Silver Lace IC's) and for the money, I haven't heard better. But the best? Nordost Valhalla, hands down. Granted, they'll run you the price of a car, but you asked for the best. [​IMG]
