    Mine wasn't generic and was certainly a head turner in jet black with 4 barrel V8 power, Hooker header rumble, and Centerline shine. At way less money new and modified, it could have any newer Camaro Z28, TransAm, or Datson 280Z turbo for dinner. Plus it could carry a stove in the back.

    If you were in NZ halo i would lend you my cables to try. I just went from monster .5s biwire to A'quest rocket 44... What a difference, like night and day, has improved everything and i mean everything.
    In terms of audio, i truly feel sorry for the visually impaired. How can they know what they like if they cant read google?

    Naw, those guys drove Z28's and Datsun Turbos.
    They wouldn't know a Centerline from a party-line either.
    LOL.

    Hmm... this topic of wire, gage/quality of same, and ICs seems to be as, if not more, controversial than Christ's existance.
    Before I give my $.02 worth: If the RTi A5s have the same banana jacks as the RTi A1s, you can use 8 or 10 gage. I'm using fresh, new OFC AR 12 gage with my A1s (surround channels cut off @ 100hz) I plan to purchase A5s myself for front L&R. Using separate stereo amp for a CSI A6-I have the wire and channels available so why not!
    My EXPERIENCE on gage is simple: BIGGER IS BETTER!!. I've told these stories many times, but never on-line.
    Experience 1: a pair of speakers that I paid $650 in 1980. About 6 months after I got them I decided to rewire them w/12 ga monster cable. Did one cabinet. Reconnected it to my system w/the other the other speaker still stock. Had to set the balance control between 10 & 11 o'clock to "balance" the modest volume setting. when I did the other speaker that "balance" problem went away.
    Experience 2: about 10 years later, had a pair of subs with 2 12s in each, one driver daisey chained to the other. They came hard wired w/about 10' of 10 ga Monster cable. I EXO'd @ 110 hz, driving them with a Belles Series I power amp. One day I decided to rewire them. In a nutshell, I shortend the cable and gave each driver its own connection. Yeah that right-twice as thick, half as long. Had to make a signifcant change to XO LP setting because EVERYTHING sounded fat & heavy.

    Experience 2 served to fortify my belief with experience 1. I plan to rewire all my HT speakers given time & bi-amp the LCR channels! I'll visit another time w/ my experience with ICs.
    So to anyone that preaches wire size doesn't matter... ...you best plan to take 29 years to change my mind! And it will be a hard sell!

    The Clearview speaker wire is soft, solid copper, and must be 18-20 gauge it is so small. Both in the living room, and last night in the HT, I broke a wire off at one of the binding posts. Somehow, a few weeks ago, I, or a cat, ripped one of the analog ribbons from the RCA shell, so I need to return it for repair.
    Yesterday, I went to the Omega Mikro web-site to get some information on the Planar 1 speaker cable I had purchased, and really like for its performance. Anyway, I went to the Product page, and there were no products listed. My first thought was I screwed up, but after trying multiple times and finding no products, I sent an email to the “Contact us” link, and said I cannot see any products listed.

    A few hours later I received an email from Ron Bauman thanking me for my input, and asking me to try it now, since there was a problem. It was working better, but still no speaker cables were displayed. One more email, and it was fixed. After that, I jokingly suggested I should get a discount on my analog cable repair.

    Ron replied that it will be fixed for free.

    For me, that is customer service, and a great way to end the year, and start the new.


    Omega Mikro and Mapleshade are joint companies.
