    Speaker cables for tri-amping

    Oh yes, a huge difference, i would recommend doing it every couple of years and not 20 as i did. So nice to see shinny copper too.

    Speaker cables for tri-amping

    Thanks for your reply, i am now fully tri-amping with an active xover. 3 similar SE class A tube amps. I am still breaking-in one new silver cable and will use the cardas and the other silver cable. I think they are of similar quality. And i ll try the few possible combinations

    Blown Tube ????

    I have checked this when i noticed one tube did not glow as much as the other on my phono. It appears it could happen but nothing to worry as long as the amp sounds normal.
  6. Well it is done, i got the active cross over this week and i am using the 3 amps. Matched the 500 and 7kHz cut over frequencies and now enjoying active tri-amping SQ. The 2 McChanson mini 2W are now singing at their full potential. Just one wonder with the crossover, is it a good choice to use a audiopro PA crossover or is there anything more audiophile like ? I might give mini-dsp a try or should i look into the diy world ? What do you guys use as active crossover ? Could not find a topic on SNA

    Speaker cables for tri-amping

    I guess the question does not generate much enthusiasm... Anyway, i got my active crossover today, plugged it as a two way for the moment, waiting for the silver speaker cables to arrive soon. So i cut the oxydated ends of the SAEC copper and use it on the bass. The Cardas for the mid and high with the existing passive filter. Bi-amping is already amazing and works ok that way. I ll put the silver on the tweeter and if too sharp i ll switch it with the copper. Cheers Maxime

    Why not JBL?

    Funny topic, my woofer is a TAD, the mid horn and driver JBL and the tweeter is a Pioneer. Very happy with the result. I could only afford a Toyota though.

Topic Starter Members 38 74 posts Location: ACT Country: Australia Report post Posted October 6 I bought the Cardas Clear light speaker cables from Scuzzi here on SNA and i am totally amazed with the improvements in my system. I suspect my SAEC 6N cables got some oxydation after 20 years of good services. I also own a pair of decent silver cables and my question is, when i will go tri-amping soon, how should i use these cables ? My thoughts are the SAEC on the bass, the Cardas on the mid and the silvers on the high. I am planning to cut the xover at 700Hz and 10 kHz, the mid being the most efficient component in my speakers, with a JBL horn at 117 db. I suppose the best will be all Cardas but i am not sure i can afford 2 more. Thank you

    Mat for acrylic platter?

    I also use the Pro-Ject rpm 10. No mat and no problem with statics

    End Game?

    I thought i had my end game in the late 90’s with amazing custom made speakers, a Mark Levinson 39 CD transport and a Pass Aleph power amp. Happy for 15 years, did not change a thing until i built my SunAudio 2A3 amp and bought my Project 10 rpm. Then the bug kept going with this website, bought a DAC, built an audio pc, changed the mc cart, got a phono, 2 more valve amps and better cables. Hardly listen to cds anymore but i think i should be close to my end game, at least for a couple of years. I don t think i ll move to DSP and SS more powerful amps. I am just satisfied with SE class A low power valves amps. Sounds warmer than SS to me. Soon tri-amping with an analog active cross-over, that should be the final mark and i will try to avoid adding another adc/dac conversions to the chain with a dsp.
