Speaker Cables for FRITZ Carbon 7 SE mk2

Not sure if I should’ve posted this in cables or speakers...

but..Since this is somewhat speaker specific, I’m posting here.

I’ve posted a bit before about how I’m somewhat new here and have jumped into the deep end the past couple of years trying to outfit myself with a very pleasing digital audio setup without spending a fortune.

At this point, I’m in about $8.5k in and don’t’ really want to go too too much north of that.

I will be upgrading my streamer soon and with new speakers cables will probably crest the $10k mark.

I was using Omega single driver monitors with Supra cables (recommended by Omega) but have moved the Omegas to a different room but I’m still using the Supras.

In the past few months I’ve ended up with almost all my cabling (except power) being Triode Wire Labs (Ethernet, USB, Coax and RCA interconnects)

I’m interested in purchasing a set of speakers cables from TWL but thought I’d check in with Fritz owners about what has worked for them first.

Currently my system is something like:

Router > Linkup Ethernet cable > Uptone Etherregen > TWL Freedom Ethernet cable > Ifi Zen Stream with 12V LHY linear power supply > TWL USB cable > Denafrips Iris DDC > TWL coax SPDIF > Border Patrol se-i DAC > TWL Sprit ii RCA interconnects > Van Alstine T10 tubed preamp > BJC RCA interconnects > Van Alstine SET 120 power amp > Supra Rondo 2.5 speaker cables > Fritz Carbon 7 SE mk2.

Power Cords are all Signal Cable.

Ultimately I’m very happy for the most part.

I do feel like the Supras may be holding things back , but who’s to know without experimenting. The system is smooth, warm, relaxed ...never strident. Sometimes, not always, the highs seem a little rolled off. Maybe I’d like to interject just a bit of sparkle into the system.

I’m also not done experimenting with power amps so the SET 120 may change around but...given what I’m currently using , does any Fritz user have suggestions on speaker cables. I’d like to purchase about 3.5 meter pairs so that can get costly and I guess I’d like to stay near $1000.

thanks in advance



I have the same speakers and some of your other gear.

I am using Kimber 8Ts

$300 for 3 meter set. 

I see no sub's listed or am I missing them?

I would be buying a swarm before spending on cables.

You and I are value minded consumers. 

You can see that $3,000 speakers don't justify $1,000 cables.

Fritz recommended BJC to me. I went with the Belden 5T00UP and never looked back. 

In France we have a company called WhyNot cables. These cables use active shield and they are considered by french audiophiles as the very best cables regardless of your budget. Previously I've used american Magnan Reference speaker cables with my Sound Lab + Atma Sphere based system. I have recently switched to WhyNot and I think that my search for good speaker cable is now over.
