but speakers cables matters if you care about the sound quality, no?

How does one tell the difference in quality anyway?

As far as I know, no one is testing the difference brands of speaker wire.

I'm guessing it's mass produced at different factories in China.

Not unless you've got the top high end system. In that case, usually cables are the only thing left to spend money on.

i kind of considered my system as kind of the top high end

i have no experience of any good speaker cables but

when i replaced my er4p stock cable to APS cable

the difference in sound was pretty dramatic

Usually the differences are not demonstrable, but there are various other (aesthetic / placebo) reasons cables can be bought. There's no harm in getting a good cable if you have the budget, whether it makes a difference or not is another issue.

Lexus is a mid price model under the Audionote brand. Your Omega has v dif audio characteristics from your B&W though, not sure how well it will work.

what's your budget? source?! it depends how much you're willing to spend.

 

good cables: Siltech; Audience's;

low cost: Supra; Mogami;

better avoid: Nordost's

imo

Both are speakers that are only available through specialist audio dealers, thought they would be the right guys to consult. Why would you come to a headfi forum for recommendations?

I'd get any good brand (audioquest, siltech, etc.) Entry level cables for your setup. Not worth spending more till you upgrade the rest of your stuff.
