Audio setup for desktop (speakers, not headphones) - Page 2

Nothing wrong with using 12 gauge. There are a lot of people that buy cable wire by the spool that may need longer lengths, so they just go with 12 gauge. Or they buy it for the coolness factor. You just don't need it for running cable a few feet.

Wuz reading more on articles about speaker wire and to me it seems like not much of a sound difference, but mathematical audiophiles go crazy about the right one. 

Finally, thank you so much for being active and responding in a kind and helpful manner, those choices are very nice and all the reviews on each is excellent.

have a great life, will probably update you with a PM or something

Glad to help. Yeah, there have been some interesting tests with speaker wire. Some people swear by expensive wire based on their subjective experience. But the science suggests that it's not worth spending a ton of money on wire. Just get copper wire that is the right gauge smily_headphones1.gif

Not to muddy the waters, but another product to consider is the Vanatoo Transparent One. Integrated amp & DAC--(IMO) a balanced sound and *very* good bass extension for a 5.25" +passive driver. The sub-out is an added bonus.
I've had my pair for a year and couldn't be happier, but then I wasn't looking for a studio monitor...

Well thank you for that recommendation, but now, I'm just trying to find amps to properly power either the Wharfs or the ARX A1Bs
