I am planning to upgrade my speaker cable and interconnect to the HIJIRI cables but budget is a constraint I can do one cable at a time.

So my friends which cable should be my first purchase the speaker cable or the interconnect.



"15awg is not big enough for speaker cables imho."

well, we tend to go overboard these days, here’s a wire chart from the roger russell speaker wire document. depends on both length and impedance.

Unfortunately there’s no universal answer. I would replace the weakest link. 

I tested Inakustic, Tchernov, and Hijiri and a couple of others.  I ended up with Hijiri and they are a great cable.  I would go with speaker cables first.  I have since upgraded to QSA Ultimatum Infinity Speaker cables and they are in another stratosphere in price but well worth it if you can afford them

Hijiri is awesome and I use the RCA interconnects and power cords on my Aries Cerat System

Do a search on Audiogon for AES48 and see if it applies to your gear.



Dear Willgolf,

Have you sold your Hijiri speaker cables? Please let me known if you didn't.
