I have Monitor 7s (only a week old) driven by a Denon 1603 (80 wpc x5). I have done a search read lots of debate but thought I would ask for expereinces from owners of the same brand and more specifcally similar or same speakers. I currently have cables I made myself using 12 gauge Thunderbolt lightning cable and glod plated bannana plugs. 6ft long each. This was fairly inexpensive and have been pleased with the performance on my old speakers given the low cos of this set up. I rally don't see the point for me to spend a lot on cables given I have a $600 CAN amp and a $700 set of speakers. Given my lower powered amplifier would I notice any real difference if I made a second set of cables with Bannana plugs on the speaker and and spades on the other and went bi wire on my 7s? I could probably do it for $50 or so. Would I even get my money's worth out of $50 with my current setup. anyone like to share their experience wit Paradigm and bi wire on budget systems?
