Step up from Outlaw interconnects?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I'm planning on buying the Outlaws here pretty quick, and I was just wondering if anyone had any opinions about what the next step up might be. I'm guessing I can't afford it, but I'd at least like some ideas if you guys happen to have any.

Also, if there is anyone who doesn't like the Outlaws and has opinions about a better "bang for buck" interconnect, I would certainly be interested in hearing that as well.

I doubt you'll find a pair of interconnects with a higher bang-for-the-buck value than the outlaws. And I also think you'd need to spend quite a bit more money before you found a cable that sounded much better than they do.

What he said. From what I've been able to gather from the cable experts, the outlaws will give you quite a lot of usage. I mean, let's be serious. Cables should come after your source, amps, etc. But outlaws are too good to pass up for the price, and you'll be able to stick with them for quite a while.

While I have no direct experience with any of these cables, I've considered them all as I've built each of my systems. None of them need to cost you more than $150.

cables is all about system matching. the outlaw are very nice but that doesnt mean its the best cable for all systems and ears.

I would go with the outlaws, for the price and the sound quality that goes with them you can't beat the deal. I am very satisfied with the price for performance ratio.

I'm going with the Outlaws first. Since they come so highly recommended and they are inexpensive, it's not like there's any risk involved.

However, after that I might try out some other interconnects and compare them to the Outlaws to see if they really are the best that I can afford ($150>) for my system.

Since everyone hears differently (obviously) and various components do different things to the sound (obviously), this seems like a good idea. Plus, it will be interesting and help me develop my ear.
