This is actually another speaker cable question - sorry
I’ve spent all my available funds on a beautiful Uniti Atom and want to squeeze the best out of it (safely) for the time being. I’ve consolidated everything into the main living room so now my existing Nordost Super Flatline are both too short physically and a very poor electrical match for the Naim.
Looking at a 7m run of cable to my existing old B&W speakers and was thinking about using Van Del Hul The Clearwater as the stopgap solution. It seems to be fairly low Capacitance. We’ve only a very small number of retailers here so choice fantastic and about £10/€12 per meter is my current budget limit. Any strong objections to the Clearwater option?
I paid £4.95 per metre in 1996. If you apply RPI from then to now the cost would be £11.60. Copper prices have gone up and down but would not account for the large uplift in prices. Maybe it was a loss leader before?
I’m looking to see if I can source K20 locally as this sounds like a good temporary solution within my budget limits. I can’t seem to find the outer dimensions for this cable (or NACA4 for that matter) - would anyone know this aprroximately?
My setup means there would be considerable slack cable on one side. Cribbing from a photo I spotted on this forum, I’m thinking of running the spare through foam pipe insulation in a zig-zag pattern (not coiled). Just curious what diameter I’d need to specify. I could of course wait until I had the K20 in my hands of course.
I use Audioquest Rocket 11 from my Atom to my ATC SCM20 SL’s. Wonderful sound. The cable very flexible too. I found a seller who had priced it up wrongly at 25% of rrp on the internet but I dare say that has been rectified now.
