XLO Electric

Where can a body get cables from XLO Electric??

Can't find them anywhere, and according to the dealer list on their website, no one in the state of IL sells XLO cable... Just wondering if anyone knew where to get it [I was planning on the 'pro' series speaker cable].

If theses cables are really that hard to find,, can anyone offer a good alternitive? [not Monster].

I've already checked out some of Audioquest's stuff, even Type 4 is a bit through the roof for my system.

BTW, my system:

Denon DRA-395 http://www.usa.denon.com/ProductDetails/574.asp

Infinity Primus 250

http://www.crutchfield.com/S-uIyvk3wqoWu/cgi-bin/ProdView.asp?wm=fp&I=700P250&g=12000

Denon DCA-280

http://www.usa.denon.com/ProductDetails/499.asp

Not really audiophile standard, but hey, good enough for a 15 year old

Oh, also, no one tell me to go to home depot and get the 10AWG cable cheap, and that I wont be able to tell a difference 'tween it and exotic stuff. [I've done something similer, it's more like 14AWG from Ace Hardware]

Since you can RETURN speaker cable, I'm going to buy some low-end exotic cable, and see FOR MYSELF if there is a sonic difference. I was thinking in the $80-120 price range for like 6-8ft. [I think 6] of speaker cable.

Thanks in advance.

oop, nevermind. No one reply.

sorry, I've decided not to go with XLO. What a waste of typing, right?

Re: XLO Electric

Hello your majesty,err Brian.

I have several cales (i/c and speaker) in my collection.
One of them is XLO's signature cables which is way above the "pro" series. I'd suggest you steer away from this brand as they are just a bit "hard" sounding with certain set-ups and since Denon is not the smoothest sounding components around (although not that "hard" either).
Do have a look at this site though : zucable.com

Hey Brian -

Don't let anyone tell you otherwise, but if you like to listen to music on your system, then you are an audiophile! That's it - period. I'm a big fan of MIT cables, but you may want to look at Canare cable from a "pro audio" supplier. The price/value ratio is about right with this cable. . . Whatever you save on cables, you can use for new music and that's really what it's all about: the music.

Have FUN!
