New speaker cables

I have just updated all of my interconnects and phono cable with Audio Sensibility Signature. Now I’m want to replace my bluejean speaker cables. There are two in particular I’m interested in they are the Signature from the company already mentioned and the Silversmith Fidelium ribbon cables. I want a quality cable that really makes a difference in my system. If you have experience with either of these please reply. I will also consider other similar quality cables.

Thanks
Mike

It’s pretty hard to beat the Iconoclast cables for any amount of money.

I have the Silversmith Fideliums, other than being a tad difficult to attach to some binding posts I love them. Terrific Value for the money

I replaced Siltech with Iconoclast. Can’t do better at that price point.

Thanks for the suggestion I will check them out.

They have been on my wants list for a while, love how they look.

Given what the OP seeks, we need to know what he means by “a difference”. So far none of the responses have addressed his need!

They have a very loose 30 day trial period and give you all of the different conductor alloys to try out. And they are a great group of people to work with.

I’d suggest arranging for a shoot-out between the Iconoclast, Audio Sensibility and Silversmith Fidelium. As each has rather limited market penetration and the latter being relatively new seeking opinions may have limited value. That and this forum tends to have a bias towards the Iconoclast line. I have the Audio Sensibility Statement Silver SE XLR and the Iconoclast SPTPC RCA. I do prefer the Iconoclast interconnect as it provides for greater musical coherence and temporal balance in my system(s). The Audio Sensibility has a slightly uplifted high end, which initially can be fun. The Audio Sensibility Ohno copper may be more to my liking than the silver. As we have a cat who enjoys nibbling on cellophane, plastic ribbons and the like there will be no ribbon cables here.

BTW what amplifier, preamp and speakers are you running?

RobinHood is better than Iconoclast in my system…

I would demo both and compare :slight_smile:

Chiming in to agree with the shootout, all I think will give you a free trial, pretty sure Silversmith did, of course I didn’t send them back so can’t recall. Let us know what you choose.
