    Speaker cable for use with a Bryston 4s2 amp

    Read a lot about different amps needing a certain kind of speaker cable to sound it's best The cable game can get expensive very quickly, so I would like to get it right the first time. Right now I am using Bryston cable and it sounds thoroughly OK, I feel a more dynamic presentation is just a cable with superior material away. Thanks in advance.

    Bryston makes well engineered products, so you don't have to worry about high capacitance problems that some legacy and boutique amp have.

    The two things you need to know before choosing speaker cables are:
    1] Cable length
    2] Loudspeaker impedance curve.

    Speedskater, I feel like I am on thin ice when introduced to a term like loudspeaker impedance curve. Thanks for your reply.

    All the Stereophile (and many others) loudspeaker tests have an impedance curve chart. If the curve looks like a roller-coaster (ignore the bass-reflex peak) or has very low values (under 3 Ohms) then it's more sensitive to speaker cable differences.

    Thankj you, Speedskater. I Googled the speakers I own and they are like you stated, within 8ohm/thereabouts. I appreciate the info from you.
