    Below the AVt2's, but I'm sure they are good entry level cables nonetheless.

    Check out MIT's home page. Some good info there metal.

    I just saw that you bought the RTi A7's metal. Seriously, do those speakers justice and buy some MIT cables. You'll be doing yourself a favor to. ;)

    One last question, how do those MIT EXp-1's compare to the three cables in the title of this thread? Just curious.

    Well, I don't think you can really go wrong with any of the others mentioned. For example, I had the Blue Jeans Cable-Belden 5000UE 12ga. on my 2 channel until recently. I still use it for my surrounds. It works very good. BUT I've had these MIT's on my system now for 9 days. They're just starting to break-in and open up a bit. I'm noticing a wider sound stage plus much more detail and nuances I wasn't hearing before. Separation also seems to have improved. The past couple days I've fired up my system it's been sounding better & better. I quesstimate in the next month or so they will be completely burned in and I'll be getting the full benefit of the cable. For me, this has been one of the best upgrades I've done with my rig. I listened and took the advice of other respected members here. There's no looking back now. I just keep moving forward. ;) Buy what you can afford metal. There's nothing wrong with the BJC, Signal or AQ cables. Some guys with more experience and that have tried different cables might even prefer one of those over another. I may be a bit biased now over the MIT's, but again, these were a nice upgrade for me. YMMV so good luck. :)

    Edit: Just don't buy any Monster Cables. ANYTHING but Monster!

    I am a first time buyer of quality audio cables. I just installed AQ 4's. I can tell you there is a big difference in what is coming out of the system. If money is an issue you can't go wrong with AQ 4's. Remember kill the monster.

    I've seen similarly-located sellers in the past that were selling Kimber 8TC and 4TC. The jacket coloring (blue/black) and bananas did not look like typical Kimber, so I suspect that they were cheap knockoffs. I guess the proof would be to inspect the internal copper strands for the Varistrand construction. YMMV...

    FYI, all my 8TC/WBTs were bought here in the states, although I did pay more than the Hong Kong ebayers. And they do sound amazing after they are broken in! I am using 8TCs in my A/V system (L+C+R) and 2-ch (bi-amped, 8TC LF/4TC HF per speaker).

    A/V system: I also have BJC speaker wires for my surrounds, along with BJC and Monoprice interconnects. I have been very happy with their price/performance too! And am just about to buy some Signal Cable power cords due to their high praises from many sources... I am an equal opportunity cable buyer! :D

    It also doesn't help when i search on google about all these cables, and just speaker cable in general, and i get all the "snake oil" type discussions. AVS seems good for that, the wire is wire type talk. I have no experience with any cable other then the cheap 16gauge walmart cable i'm using, so i can't form any kind of opinion, i can just read what other people say right now.

    Contact Greg(inspiredsports) about the MIT's. He will have a full front soundstage(3 separate cables) and you really wont feel the need to upgrade unless you really want to go up the food chain. Keiko's summary is dead on. You will be very happy. I'm taking all the thinking out of the equation for you.:D

    There's no snake oil in the MIT's bud. Just pure magic. :)

    Awesome! No work tonight because of a massive snow storm, so i get paid to sit at home and have some beers while enjoying my new RTi A7's...:D...Anyways lol.




    Yeah i think i'm going to grab those MIT EXp-1 cables, Greg seems like a real stand up guy and i feel a lot more comfortable buying from him then some Hong Kong seller on Ebay. I wish i could afford those AVt-2 speaker cables he has, but then i wouldn't have enough at the moment to buy IC's, which i'll need when my amp arrives.

    All you guys have been a great help and i really appreciate it, i love club polk! :)

    Now i just need to decide on my IC's lol.

    Greg's a real good guy. Ask him if he still has some AVt2 interconnects available. If he does, you might want to get the AVt2 speaker cable. He wasn't asking much more for it and this way you'll have perfectly matched IC's and speaker cable. Compare the actual retail cost on those cables and what Greg is selling them for. It doesn't get any better than that my friend. ;)

    By the way leroy, thanks for the suggestion on the MIT's.
    From what you and the other guys say, it seems that's my best bet.

    And i actually am going to be in the market for buying a house pretty soon, that's my #1 priority, which is why i'm being cautious with how much i spend on all this stuff right now.

    I just sent Greg a PM asking about the AVt speaker cables and AVt IC's, because the thought of having everything match up sure is tempting. I might as well see what i can get those for before i make my final decision, but i'm definetly buying something, i can't wait any longer!!! :o lol

    I have received the MIT AVt-2 speaker cables and IC's this morning at 10:00am. That is some amazingly fast shipping considering i ordered them on Thurdsay afternoon! Greg is without a doubt a great person to buy from!

    Can't wait to rip out the 12 ga Walmart cables and get these bad boys hooked up!

    Thanks for the help everyone...:D

    Yeah, i've got the papers that come with the MIT's on installing and burning in the cables. I'll probably leave my system on low when i'm out and about, and when i'm sleeping, just to speed up the process..:D
