    Speaker cables for Shindo speakers

    Having ordered a pair of Shindo 604 speakers, my mind now turns to speaker cable. Shindo wires are the obvious, if not expensive, choice, probably followed by Auditorium23.

    I'd certainly appreciate thoughts or suggestions from other Shindo speaker owners about cable preferences. What cables have you used and if you've used different kinds of cables with your Shindos, what were your (hopefully detailed) impressions? Thanks!

    Of course you could go the Shindo route, but others have been very happy with Sablon. I have A23 myself.

    Hello,
    I used 2 different cables with my CCQs.
    WireWorld Silver Eclipse 6 and pure solid core silver cable from a US brand ( I have to look for the exact diameter and brand : I forgot them). Both are only 1 meter length ( monoblocks near the speakers).
    The pure silver cables give a more opened treble on my speakers with more extraverted timbres. The WireWorld is more relaxed and maybe a bit more weighty.
    Differences are rather subtile to my ears so I stopped "playing" with cables.
    But I think that Shindo is made for silver cables.

    That's an interesting observation about the silver wires. I've read that before.

    I'm not sure I can swing the Shindo wires at this point! I also just picked up a DirectStream DAC... (it sounds real nice - feeling smarter than I am for buying it!)

    My dealer will bring some A23's when he comes to set up my speakers. I have Sound Strings right now and they're great, so I'll be interested to compare to A23's. I've read Jeff Day and Jack Robert's positive reviews about the Sablon products - I'll check them out too.

    I recall reading somewhere that certain Nordost work well with Shindo. Perhaps heresy to some.

    Yes, it will shine with silver cables. So Shindos best cables are silver itself.

    The A23 SCs would just about be the de facto standard, and you would nearly be guaranteed great results.

    Personally, I have been quite impressed by the KLE gZero 6 speaker cables, based on an audition in my system and also listening to them in a few other local setups.

    Get some A23 cables and then forget about it. You will be very happy. I think Matt has a used set of shindo cables you may want to try.

    Don't use wireworld. You would be insane to use cables that were not designed to be synergistic with shindo.

    I agree. Stick to the recommended A23. Once I switched from can't remember what to A23, it all worked seamlessly.
