Inexpensive speaker cables: any experience?

I’m currently running some entry Kimber Kable speaker cables and looking at possibly upgrading. In my research I’ve come across some “budget” options on eBay. I assume they’re not great but curious if anyone has any experience with some “no-name” or “budget” cables? 

Thoughts on these? 



@paulgardner - been using Kimber 8TC’s for a while now, and haven’t had the urge to hunt around much. My only cabling superstition is to do the entire loom from one maker (so all my cabling is Kimber, “Ascent” series - one up from their least expensive line)

I figure 50% of audio enthusiasts think the above makes me a foolish wastrel, and the rest think I’ve never heard music, so probably landed in the right place

Let us know if you find something that you like!

Have a great day


Not sure what your definition of inexpensive is.  However, I will offer up some suggestions: 1) Zavfino Prima....., 2) Grover Huffman Pharoah cables, and 3) Cullen silver/copper cables.  

The good thing about the contemporary audio scene is the unprecedented number of high caliber audio products in all categories.  I have no doubt that there ore other excellent cables I would like that I have not heard.

Duelund 12 ga.  The reviews are mentioned in an earlier post. A well known speaker manufacturer steered to them as he said they had embarrassed all the big ticket cables they were using. $8.00 a foot!!!  Tried them and they surpassed the top of the line hiDiamond and wywires diamond cables I had. In one review (perhaps one of the ones shown in the prior posting) the reviewer replaced high priced High Fidelity cables with them. All systems are different but in mine they are quite something.  Here is an excerpt from the positive feedback review: "Generally speaking, all of the Duelund DCA tinned-copper cables share a unique combination of intensity of tone color, dynamic prowess, timbral realism, vivid presence, and a compelling portrayal of beat and tempos, that distinguishes them from copper or silver cables, and makes them immensely satisfying to listen to music with"

Nonane ebay cables is just a crapshoot with fairly predicted results.  If you are looking for an inexpensive upgrade of your entry Kimber,  check Zu Audio cables, proper design and value for money from a former Kimber Kable higher end line designer.

Very transparent and neutral cable, IMO. Running a fool loom in my system. I was embarrassed when I heard these and thought about some of the megabucks cables I'd previously spent money on.

I will second the suggestion regarding treating the room. The best money I've ever spent on my system.
