    I am wondering what HTF members were using or could recommend to use as far as speaker cable with their Paradigm Studio 60's/Studio CC. I have debated on several brands and can not decide what to use. Please help....JB

    Some will say otherwise, but nearly any 12ga. wire will work just fine. It's not something that will make a large difference. Speaker wire is not as critical as say, a component video cable.

    Radio Shack Gold 12 G or
    Home Depot 12 G speaker wire
    Now take the money you saved on not getting the expensive speaker wire and donate it to the Red Cross where it will actually make a difference.
    Regards, Nick

    I use 12g generic cable (on my Studio 40s) after auditioning a variety of brands and discovering that I could not hear a difference between cables of equivalent gauge.

    I use Monster Z1 speaker wire with banana plug terminators for my Studio/60s and Studio/CC. I'm happy with it.

    Any 12 gauge speaker wire would be fine. Obviously, if you want to go with a professional cable... They usually sound better, although still very debatable by others. I myself would stay away from Monster, I think they tend to be a little too over bassy. I'm using the Home Depot 12 gauge and made my own bi-wired cables for my Energy C-6s. I'm very happy with the cables. But, just about any 12 gauge wire should do the trick.
