I landed some David Manley/VTL cable a while back and am going to have it turned into speaker cable.
Here's what VTL has written tabout the wire:
"The VTL cable consists of a twisted array of five Teflon-insulated conductors: three legs of 18ga OFC solid-core and two of 20ga stranded silver-plated OFC, all encased in a braided shield.
For use as interconnect, VTL advises tying a solid-core and a twisted leg together for signal, tying another solid-core and stranded leg together for ground, and terminating the third solid-core leg plus overall shield to ground at the load end only.
For speaker wire, two configurations are given:
-- the first is to tie all five legs together along with the shield and use this for the positive side of the cable (another such leg is used for return, or negative)
-- the second is to tie two solid-cores and a stranded together for positive, and the remaining solid-core and stranded legs plus shield together for negative."
Concerning the speaker wire configurations, does anyone know of pros or cons of either method in regard to using them between my VTL amp and SDA's?
