Hey bro dom thats right. Btw how would u know which wire is for HF and LF when you bi-wire?

My hall set up is bi-amp (Yammy 2700 bi-amp to 603) so its very straight forward and i was thinking of putting the MA EL34 in the hall for pure stereo but can only bi-wire since the tube has only 2 outputs.

Went to LHS again to get 1307A but robert says he only have 1309A and no 1307A.
Paid for it.

First try, high frequency is flat and not big sounding.
second try, high frequency open up but all things sound messy.
third try, still the same like 2nd try.

Again, i do not know how long it will burn in or it will never burn in  ;D as i've ditch it to my HT setup which nowadays utilization rate at only 10% per month, just to play back barney dvd for my daughters !  :'(

for those who wants to hv 2 runs of 1313A to biwire, it may be difficult to connect 2 sets of 10AWG cable, so what i did was - 1 set screwed direct to terminals and the the set by banana plugs. 

quite good result; its like hving a speaker overhaul.   ;)

for speakers with 4 (biwireable) terminals, somehow biwiring gives more live, dynamics, i tried to use the 1313A (cut short strips) as jumpers and then do single cable input but the sound cannot match actual biwring.

again maybe in the mind.  ;)

hi!

if i use this type of banana plug, do u think it can fit into it? the hole for cable seem to be very big leh. if follow ur way, the banana plug cant insert fully, rite?



very tempted to try this cable. just change the original jumper of my ursher to QED SA XT and last saturday went ahfatt audio to get the neotech single core 20AWG to try it out as jumper. i triple run the cable. wow! it seem to be very clear. could hear more lips smacking ;D and i feel bigger sound stage. then i put on the yellow capacitor "tweak", hmm...... the sound seem to be tame down liao. then i switch it back to SA XT jumper. the sound seem to be better. dunno the tweak will affec 1313A anot? let me run in awhile more on the XT jumper to see got anymore difference anot?

yes to both Maxngck n Kzone, all these are options to "inserts" 2 pairs of spk wires, esp the thick ones, like 1313A.  :)

just had a hour of listening to the "new cable" arrangement, its just wow wow wow man, the strings (guitar, violin, cello, harp) all had more bounce and tighten up, the wind instruments sound crisper... just make u sit up straight.......shiokadoo man.... ;D

so now i not only recommend the 1313A but i say go for a double run.... ha ha..... ;D

for Klotz GY107 i hv both the Neutrik plug ($50/4pc) and Canare ($28/4pc) plug versions, the difference in sound is earth n sky, go for the Neutrik, its worth the investment.

I am now running single run, and LHS gave me some cut strip cables which I used for jumper.

The sound becoming better each day. I just like this cable!!!

Will try double run, maybe 1 end spades to the amp.  ;D

if ur speakers got 4 terminals, suggest u double run the cables, the improvement in sound is quite significant when compared to using a short length of the 1313A as jumpers (what i did previously)
