Well I found some Straight Wire Star Quad cables on the cheap. $15 shipped! I am getting these because so many newbies ask about wires. This just may be the ticket into good wires for the non believer, or the guy who is open minded enough to try them out. The insulation is foamed for low dielectric loss. I have my own cables that I make, but for $15 terminated I think you can't go wrong with these. The only question about the wires is the termination quality. I don't believe you need to spend a ton to get good wires. They use a wire that is just like the Canary S4. I have heard the EncoreII's that Venom was nice enough to bring over, and let me audition. Those were about the best wires I have heard so far. I would like to try them against my solid silver core Teflon insulated IC's one day.
I know they are only level ones, but seem to have the wire of the level twos.
Edit: $15 each cable.
