    Very good. We’ve tried them on a few pairs of speakers as “zeros” when we were comparing to the Oak and Aspen. I was quite surprised at two main areas:

    Increase in overall transparency and detail without any harshness and bass.

    Re: The good news is.....and the bad news is.....

    I currently use Rocket 88 speaker cables. If I were to upgrade these to the next level what would you recommend? The William Tell Zero? My other option would be the Ansuz P2.

    I need about 3 to 4 meter.

    Yes. But that Rocket 88 is damn good for the money. May want to wait until you can swing the Thunderbird Zero.

    You may find a nice pair of used Oak?

    Not to veer off, but my curiosity is peaked about your rocket 88 comment. Never tried AQ and currently have purist audio musaeus
    https://www.puristaudiodesign.com/Da...r/spk_mus.html

    Not sure what would be a worthwhile try and was thinking about 88 or aspen (used). Where are the 88 in the scheme of things? PM me if you’d like

    Aspen is definitely a step up, but the 88’s are excellent for the money.
