    Re: Vandy Treo CT Review

    Ctsooner, I agree with you on all counts. This is kinda what is bugging me though: An 8-foot double run of Castle Rock is gonna set me back a cool $3k, and I just do not see how the cost differential over 88 is justified, at least in terms of materials. (This is of course hardly a new observation about cables.) Anyway, re your last idea: Interestingly I have had exactly the same thought. Rocket 44 and 88 can easily be found as bulk cable. So it could be done. I'd have to reterminate, and might be pushing the maximum thickness that I can get into one pair of bananas or spades at the speaker end, but one way or the other it could be done. That said, if you do decide to sell your pair of Castle Rocks, let me know.

    Re: Vandy Treo CT Review

    I just snagged a pair of Treo CTs. Should have them in a couple of weeks.

    They are replacing a pair of original Quatros. I purchased a pair of Kimber speakers cables at RMAF and my initial thought is BRIGHT! We'll see after another week or two.

    I sent a pair of single bi-wire Rocket 88 to AQ to be reterminated to double bi-wire. I liked the singles alot on my Quatros and plan to compare them to the Kimbers and I'll report the results.
