Supra Ply 3.4/S speaker cables

I have now listened to my new cables burn in, and I am very surprised at the difference from my old Audioquests. The Supra's are much more pleasant and coherent, much less "in my face", but with a lot of details. The LF are very deep and round, and less boomy. It's amazing that a $20 per meter speaker cable can be so good. I don't hear any difference when connecting/disconnecting the shield to my amplifier's ground, but maybe I will when I get my new shoeboxes on Wednesday. They are more detailed and forward than my present speakers, so I feel it may even things out a bit, with a decent increase in fidelity, at least.

Both the cables and the speakers I am waiting for, get great reviews, so I feel like a child on Xmas day. Can't wait to get my hands on those sweet little boxes!

Re: Supra Ply 3.4/S speaker cables

That Ply 3.4/S is meant to be a killer budget cable, I remember a big cable round-up in one of the mags where it beat the QED and the Chord. I tend to think their cheapest products are their best!

Plenty of Supra cables in my system. Everything but the poweramp is on a Lo-rad power cable and I have the X-ZAC Toslink from Sonos to preamp.

Which 'speakers you are getting? (apologies if I missed it)

Re: Supra Ply 3.4/S speaker cables

It really is a great cable. Very very neutral and natural, but with wonderful details and soundstage.

I have been thinking of buying the Lo-Rad many times, and also Supra's extension inlet, but we have a different grounding system than Schuko in Denmark, so I wouldn't know how to work around this. If I learn how to, I will go Supra on the power side.

I just purchased the Dynaudio DM2/7 boxes today, and even though being entry level, they sound sweet right out of the box. However, I have learned they will need up to 250 hours of burn-in.
