KEEP the longer cables and sell them.
USE/buy shorter speaker cables (the same brand and model if you are satisfied with them).
Buy GOOD WINE with the difference!
ENJOY the MUSIC and the WINE!
I've always heard that interconnects should be short (1-2 meters)and speaker cables long(3 to 4 meters). The reasoning being that the low level signals carried by interconnects are influenced to a larger degree by external forces than the higher level signals present in speaker cable. Have I been mislead?
