I would like to buy a good pair of speaker cables for a pair of Energy e:XL 25 floorstanding speakers in my second system. At present, I am just using Monster XP wire with Radio Shack Gold Series banana plugs. My budget for speaker cables is $100 since this is just my second system. I use BetterCables Premium speaker cables with Vampire banana plug terminations with Totem Arro speakers in my main stereo system, but these cables run $180 for a 10-foot pair. So, they are out. For what it's worth, here is the second system: Energy e:XL 25 speakers NAD C 350 stereo integrated amp Sony SCD-C333ES SACD/CD changer Pioneer Elite PD-65 CD player The e:XL 25s can be biwired, but I am not going to bother with that right now. I tried biwiring them with Monster MCX-IS biwire cables a few months ago and was very disappointed with the sound quality. It could be that I used the "wrong" biwire cable or that the Energys just shouldn't be biwired (I've heard it said that some biwire-capable speakers sound better with a single run of cables). Anyway, I just want a single run of speaker cables for $100 or less. I would prefer to go with banana plugs over spades. Note that I could buy a pair of cables with banana plugs now and then biwire with a second pair of these cables terminated with spades later on. Thanks in advance for the suggestions.
