    Magico A3 owners - what is your speaker cable of choice?

    Before anybody reminds me that there are plenty of other factors to this question, I know. Since they are very resolving, I'm curious as to what everyone has found pleasing with these. If you want to add your amp/pre/etc, that's also appreciated

    And for a S series speaker? It would be Shunyata Sigma, right? Difficult to suggest the Sigma price point for an A3, right?

    havent had the A series, but my magico's have really loved wireworld cables. that said i haven't tried every cable out there - not many at all but i like what i currently have. i opted for wireworld because i noticed they make conditioning power cords and living in nyc our building circuitry usually is lackluster. then ocd kicked in and i ended up with a full loom lol

    I've owned Naim's best SuperLumina speaker cables since before the A3's and have just kept those; not really motivated to listen to different cables. The system sounds great so I'm ok!

    Re: Magico A3 owners - what is your speaker cable of choice?

    Thanks to all who have posted so far. I'll look into all the cables y'all listed.

    To give you an better explanation of what I'm trying to accomplish........
    I'm currently running Cerious Technologies Graphene cables and have a suspicion they are a little heavy in the mid-bass/bass region. I've never tried anything else on this particular system so it's an educated guess at this point. The system consists of a PSA BHK Preamp, PSA DAC, Bel Canto 600M Monoblocks, with High Fidelity CT-2 interconnects. If there is a weakness, it's got to be the Cerious Tech. Again, just guessing but if anyone has additional opinions (specifically on the CT bass response) - please chime in.

    Thanks again
