Then you should maximise your 1 hr allowance per day by playing high current music such as bassy or drums instruments.  ;)

Recently I bought this cable due to good comments in this forum.
My set up is marantz 7300+primare A20mkii+quad 12l.I have tried 3 different cables with this set up.
MIT terminator4-biwire
Excellent in detail and laid back sound.But has lean bass and poor soundstage
Anticables-biwire
Excellent deep bass and clear soundstage.But it sound harsh in my system and hights are missing too
Belden 1313A-single run
Excellent sound stage ,warm and clean sound with good detail.Decent bass even though not as great as anticables.
honestly I can't point real drawbacks. ::)

For my system with my ears I am very much satisfied with this cable especially at this price(2.5 mt pair terminated with bananas by LHS only $54.00) :P

But seems like most of the upgraders are from QED Silver Anni users.

The Silver Anniversay series and the X-Tube series are different so cannot compare. Plus the XT-300 iam using is copper core.

Anyway think its low cost for me to try out. Think total length for 2 sets of bi-wire and centre goner be less then 10m.

Wah how many metres you misplace? Per metre is about $28 right for XT350?
