Speaker cable recommendations

Hello! I'm currently looking for some speaker cable recommendations. Current system is Luxman L509x to ATC SCM20s and I've been using Belden 9497 to connect the two. I have roughly 10 ft between the left speaker and amp which makes for a more expensive cable.

I've been wanting to stay around $300 or less but the options that have been recommended to me tend to be above that.

Options that I've been considering - 

  1. Wireworld Solstice - there's a sale right now and I can get biwired for $250
  2. DIY Duelund 16GA for tweeter/12GA for bass - for the length, I'm looking at ~ $550 biwired from partsconnexion
  3. DIY Neotech NES-3004 MKII - ~$600 
  4. Used Analysis plus - it looks like I can only afford Oval 12 around this price range. 

Any suggestions on which direction would go well with my system? I've been leaning more toward the Neotech since I've read the duelund has a specific sound that it goes for and Neotech should be more neutral. I have no experience with any of the cables above so any help would be appreciated.



Canare 4S11 speaker cable. A 10 foot pair terminated should run around $120.00.

++1 for DHLabs and Zavfino, excellent products for the money......both should be around $300 to $400 for a pair

I’m a tightwad and I’ll toss what I use into this thread .

I have a set of acoustat 2+2 connected to a Jolida 100w

tube amp and energy 2.8 Veritas triamped with three 

nad 208thx.

I found a surplus company that had black single strand 

silver plated copper multi strand wire for $.79 a foot.

I clearly marked it - and + and used it for all .

I think I paid under $200 for it and still have some leftover 

on the spool.

I think the newer version Kimber 8PR might be the best new cable deal around...uses their excellent "vari strand" copper, great connectors (I use their bananas for the potassium content on the amp end, with "postmaster" el squishos on the speaker end), and for longer runs (why I needed another pair of speaker cables for my re-designed gear heap) they get 9awg into each leg. Hard to beat for the money and they sound great.
