Moving from Belden 1860A to either Klotz or Canare is NOT an upgrade. However, all three cables sound diff. Personally I like Klotz best, Canare sounds warm and less airy while Belden sounds grainy relatively but it has a bold sound.
I use Klotz in my Aego 2. The spk cables that came with the set sound too bright. I had another pair for my separates system but a fren took home to try and has bot it over. In my dad's house I made a pair of 1810A, basically the two core version of four core 1860A, for him. Klotz, after run in, sounds warmer than Belden but not to the extent of Canare. Its highs and lows sound more extended whereas Belden has a prominent mid-low bass so its low bass sounds attenuated. Belden also sounds less airy vs Klot. I think LHS in SLT #02-27 sells Klotz by the metre so you dont need to buy a 100m reel from agent.Unless you have a three way floorstander with decent source and electronics in a decent size room, I'd say you are better off spending your money elsewhere, ie on hardware. In my place the difference from changing hardware is very significant vs changing cables. Other spk cables I have are Audioplan, OCOS and vdH SCS12.
slight upgrade...try mogami.
Call them and your questions will be answered. Personally I prefer Klotz LY225T spk cables over Mogami 3082, which sounds bass light to me. The four core Mogami 2921 is more to my liking, sounding a bit sweet but bold, and costs a lot more too when I had them in HK many years ago.
Hi guys, do you know the wire gauge of the Klotz LY225T? I checked the specs but it wasn't mentioned. The reason I am asking is because I wanted to be sure its gauge is thick enough for 15m lengths of surround speaker connections. Or is this cable recommended only for the LCR/subwoofer connections? Thx.
