    Just wanted to check in (again) and say that using single cables, and putting cable between posts in place of stock jumpers, has also had an amazing effect on sound quality. I used a few short...

    I'm sorry, I think I misunderstood your earlier statement. When you said that "any speaker with dual posts is built for bi-wiring", I thought you were saying that the internals didn't matter. While...

    Some speakers have discrete internal hi/lo sections (power to one section won't go to other section), which is why external jumpers are needed. Doesn't necessarily mean they'll sound better with...

    Thanks! I'll try to remember that when I go on my next cable safari in a few months.

    I must admit that my Blue Jeans cables really have me in a good place right now - the bi-wire set-up has...

    Bi-wiring my Polk LSi9s

    First, I'd like to thank Upstatemax for suggesting that I bi-wire my speakers, in another thread. The idea hadn't even been on my radar until then - it was just one of those things that I'd heard...

    That sounds right; I do have a toroidal. I wasn't even aware that toroidals aren't succeptible to lamination issues - thanks for info. My previous reading made me think that this might be my...

    Actually, hadn't noticed that someone had linked to a $99 DC blocker - I just assumed folks were talking about the Humbuster (which I recall being around $300). Thanks for info.

    What if the hum is intermittent, not constant, and not apparently related to load (i.e. music playing and/or volume)? Honest question. My amp's transformer hums now and then (there's no similar...

    You know, I hadn't been thinking of bi-wiring, but my Polks are built for it, and I'm pretty sure my McCormack can handle it. It does seem like the Signals give...

    No, it's not silver. Not sure I want the bright sound that folks report with silver cable.

    Prices have actually been going up for these - they're hitting $800-$900, and getting sold. Not sure what's going on, other than (I guess) simple supply and demand. Glad I got mine for $750.
