Post Am i using the right cables for my system?

My father hooked up the jamo s608 5.1 system with these wires. The man at the shop told us to buy from these cable wires.



Will i hear any difference in sound if i upgrade to more expensive wires ?

So far, everything sounds great.

Thanks.

man, that's a sore subject that's been around here. tons of post in many, many threads about this subject matter. i will tell you that in most cases, as long as you don't have lots of electrical cables around your speakers (the one's your using) as they are not shielded at all, you should have no troubles. also as long as you have short runs of cable you should be fine with that to.

as long as they are terminated well at both ends (receiver/amp end & speaker end) you should be fine. if you feel you are getting interference from electrical power cables and such you might want to look for a slightly better insulated speaker cable or try to route the speaker or electrical cables so that they stay away from each other.

if they sound good right now then i'd say leave them alone. of course you are welcome to test out whatever cables you would like to as long as you and your wallet can handle it. the only RIGHT cable is the one that works giving you what you perceive is the best sound you can get from end to end of your audio components.

best of luck to ya.

+1, I agree, if everything sounds great that keep what you have. But if you really want to buy the cables. Ask for a huge discount, there is a lot of mark up on these products especially if they are high end cables.

I got 40 percent off my speaker wires and did not hear a difference or improvement in sound. I even biwired and couldn't hear a difference.
Love 3D technology and am addicted to it.
