Bi-Wire Cables under $350 (Used or New)

Hi All: I am assembling my first system, and believe I am settling into my current setup for the (short) haul (assuming I’m ready to level up in about 2-3 years). my

Current System: Hegel 190 Integrated paired with the new Monitor Audio Silver 500 7G. Temporarily using some Amazon bi-wire Speaker Cables (CESS-106-6f Bi-Wire 2-4 Banana 12 Gauge, 2-Channel (6 Feet)).

Recommendations Requested: 2 or 3 Suggested Bi-Wire Cable Brands and Models, used or new, under $350.  Qualities: They DON’T add sibilance/treble further, but for perhaps "deepen" and perhaps add some further "clarity" .

Are these the right descriptors? I don’t know. I do know that I cannot tell what (now) what a low Zo (characteristic impedance) sounds like (see link below) and nor do I have the budget at the moment to spend 1000s to chase marginal gains on this system.






I like Mogami speaker cables and if you check with Event Horizon they can make anything you need, choose your wire, configuration, terminations, etc. Very good to deal with. The website will walk you right through customizing what you want and the prices are incredible for what you get.


Have a look at Duelund cables, combined them for bi-wire, the tinned copper they are made of wont add any brightness but the cotton covering will provide much more details than the plastic covering of you basic cables

At that price level you might be better off getting a single run of better quality cable and good jumpers.  

At that price point I also typically prefer a single run with jumpers of same cable 

I’m using 4- conductor 12 gauge OFC Monoprice on a very good transparent tube system, and it sounds natural, neutral and clear with good microdynamics and musicality. I’ve had Cardas, Kimber, Belden, Monster, and others. It’s very good wire. Spending more doesn’t mean better sound. Highly recommended for bi-amping/bi-wiring.
