I'm stuck here and hoping someone can push me in the right direction...

I need to connect my Denon 2900 for multichannel (6 ch) to my HK7200 receiver. Using the Dahlquist qx10 for mains, and qx4 for surrounds, and qx60c for center. The Dahlquist is fairly neutral, great bass, and ever so slightly forward in the treble.

So, i'm down to using one of the following:

Headphile Standard (headphile.com) ~$50/set
Outlaw PCA (outlawaudio.com)~$50/set
Heartland 89529 w/ Eichmann (heartlandcables.com) ~$50/set
Magwires ~$25/set

Rhinocables and Wicked cables both appear to be out of business, so that eliminates them from the running.

I'm currently buying some speaker cables and IC's from Gregg Straley to connect my Jolida CDP to the preamp, and amp to speakers; but can't afford those interconnects for the 6-ch.

Any suggestions would be definitely appreciated! I cant spend more than $150-200 for all 3 sets.

TIA,

-kb

My favour of the month is Signal Cable's $50 copper cables.



Signal's Analog 2 IS Belden 89529 w/ Scosche connectors. IMHO, the Heartland are a better value as they include the Eichmann Bullet connectors - which reputedly are a great match with this cable.

How do you like the sound of the Analog 2's?

You may very well be right.

I like them. No nonsense/straightforward. No big flaws.

I'm pretty sure that I am right.


Thanks for the tip - these should sound well too.

Anyone else?
