      NOT good bang for the buck

      After upgrading all 7 speakers in living room to Def Tech, which was a great improvement over old Polks, I didn't want to leave any weak links -- mostly concerned with the long wiring runs to the surrounds (~30 ft each) -- so decided to bite the bullet and finish it off right by completely rewiring with higher-end cable, up from current Monster XP -- spent all day Saturday going up and down stairs to tear out the old and run the new (ranch house, went thru floors and walls), wrestled with stripping the wire, switching banana plugs, etc -- expected a reasonable difference for $400 worth of wire -- but in the end just noticed a slightly improved tightness from fronts and center, did absolutely nothing for the surrounds -- disappointed, wasted a lot of time and money -- if anything, would now give Monster XP a higher rating than I would have before...

      i bought the def tech 5.0 surround bp 8060. was given incorrect bookshelf speakers when purchasing . returned and got the appropriate bi polar rear speakers. was also given monster xp speaker wire.and monster bass cables. i upgraded the bass cables with audioquest. immediately noticed a drastic improvement.. after a few months finally replaced the 16 ga. monster xp speaker wire with this audioquest x-2 speaker wire. immediately noticed a drastic improvement. amazing sound. if you are going to buy something in the magnolia room, you should immediately purchase this speaker wire. they cost more then average speaker wire, but not too pricey when viewing some of the really expensive wire out there. these are worth the money. no i am not a fake reviewer i bought the speakers and 3 years later bought this item. wish i bought this speaker wire the same day i got the speakers. don't hesitate. also the banana plugs are great too. quality going into your surround. no gimmicks here.

      This is my 1st time using AudioQuest cables and thus far I'm satisfied. Solid build quality for both the outer layer and the copper wiring as well. I used the Monster quicklock banana plugs and for much less than the cost of the way overpriced pre-terminated cables (stay away from those-total ripoff) I have custom lengths (3 ft for the center speaker, 7 ft for the fronts) that fit my needs. I definitely recommend these for anyone stepping up their speaker game (I run a Boston Acoustics system). On a related note, I give much props to the staff of Magnolia-They know their products and the level of service is heads and shoulders above your typical "blue shirt" in the rest of the store.

      High Quality Speaker Cable

      I went to Best Buy to purchase a new receiver from their Magnolia section. I spent a couple hours looking at the different receivers and speakers. After I bought a nice receiver I knew I needed some high quality cable for my main speakers (L + R). The Magnolia rep suggested this cable since it was 14 gauge and I needed to power two Cerwin Vega VE12 speakers. Normally I used 18 or 16 gauge wire, but I have tested the 16 guage vs. this wire on the speakers and the Audio Quest sounds better. It is pricey, so I wasn't going to buy 100 feet of it, but 30 worked perfectly for the center channel and the two main speakers. I used 16 gauge for the rest. You get what you pay for, so why not let more power and sound get to your speakers.

      I really don't know why I waited so long to upgrade my speaker wires, after installing the Audioquest X-2 speaker cables I was rewarded with a clean distortion free and extreamly rich sound not yet experienced with my home theater system. The decision was easy enough to make when I realized that even though I had spent top dollar on speakers and a reciever but then inturn conected those devices with .02 cents a yard cables how could I posibley achieve any kind of true sound reproduction (the saying is very true the chain is only as strong as the weakest link). I was unsure if I would experience a difference in sound reproduction but was plesantly suprized, all my conections are currently being upgraded to Audioquest. All I can say is thank you Audioquest!

      Good Entry Level Speaker Cable

      I used this cable for prewiring a new home theater speaker system. Since this surround system will be located in our Great Room, there is very little benefit to using high-end cabling. I have come to trust Audioquest and have found their cables to be quite good even at an entry level. So, if you're looking for something better than zip cord, you really should give Audioquest a try. You won't be disappointed and should easily be able to hear a difference in your music.

      I recently purchased a Marantz mini-system with some Monitor Audio BX-2 bookshelf speakers and wanted to get some speaker wire that would do them justice. I was using some inexpensive 14 gauge Monotronic speaker cable which I thought was fine, but took a change on the AudioQuest upgrade. I was surprised to notice an immediate "fullness" in the bass that wasn't there before and it was an improvement to my ears. Granted the price was in about 3x more money so there is definitely diminishing returns here, but I am please with my purchase and would definitely consider AudioQuest cable in the future.

      These cables are a bit gimmicky, but they work.

      They're made of copper, which is the second most conductive element on the planet (silver being the only element with greater conductivity, albeit at a "hefty-er" price). The claim that the specific way the strands are wound and how it passes current better is laughable. So long as you stick with high quality copper wiring (the larger the gauge, the better, to a point), current will pass through it just fine. Cheaper cable exists that is of equal quality and can be made at home with simple tools. The item works just fine, it's just overpriced.

        Hi TruePatience,

        Actually, the way the strands are arranged in a stranded conductor has a profound effect on the cable's performance. If you ever get the chance, compare your X-2 to "lampcord." I think you'll be in for a very pleasant surprise and you'll be pleased you bought X-2!
