    Speaker Cable Synergy D1

    Hi All,

    My "new to me" D1s arrive this afternoon.

    My pre-amp is the Ayre KX5-MP and my Amp is the Ayre VX-5 twenty. I am using Transparent Ultra cables all around for interconnects. The speaker wire was a 15ft run of Transparent Music Wave Super with bi-wire speaker end terminations. Obviously, these cables will not work. I am reluctant to buy any cables until I learn more and try some plain 10 gauge copper wire to get a sense of what if anything wire might add/subtract.

    I was hoping somebody might have already figured this out with the gear I have. I appreciate any feedback on speaker cable selection.

    On a side note, I sold my Rowland Model 10 to buy the Ayre VX-5 twenty and after reading all the Rowland synergy....They more powerful Ayre was a big step up with my Revels. Hopefully, I am in good shape with the D1s.

    Thanks.

    You may try Ansuz Accoustics / Nordost,

    They were well blended on my Raidho D1 & X1.

    Thanks! I was considering Kimber 8 or 12tc and Cardas Clear as two early possibilities.

    Sadly, the speakers were delayed by FedEx and now will arrive Monday.

    I guess I will use that time to investigate room treatments to solve my terrible 12by12 room dimensions of my new listening room. Thankfully, their are french doors on one wall to open the space up.

    If anyone has any other thoughts, I really would appreciate them!

    Cheers!

    I use Audience AU24SE. It's physically a thin cable so won't interfere with the Raidho stands.

    GIK designed my room setup and 15 treatments later my square room sounds superb. It looks like a studio but it is my dedicated office/listening room and I am cool with that. Once my Eames chair arrives I will be golden.

    I can post a photo of treatment drawings later. I am still waiting for the rest of my room to arrive. Once it is a little further along, I can take a picture of the real thing.
