Canare 11AWG Star Quad cables. Terminated with pure brass locking bananas (no junk metals found in most affordable connectors). The bare wire strands are crimped in Furutech pure copper sleeves. The sleeves keep all strands perfectly in place. They are then pressed down with great pressure by the screw, creating a very tight, and large, contact point with the banana plug (see pictures for view of contact point). The Canare 4S11 has been one of the most popular cables in professional studios and audiophile homes for over 20 years. With very good reason, it sounds great, measures great, and all at a very affordable price. I believe Its performance to price ratio is unbeatable (more on the 4S11 below).
See prices below. You'd be very hard pressed to find a cable that offers you so much anywhere in this price range. I also take great care in assembling these with the objective of making them look great. If I may say so, I believe they do (see feedback for reviews). I use first rate parts only, even the flex jacket and heat shrink. No generic brands, just high quality materials.

But of course they don't just look good and have a great price point, they sound terrific. Before spending 300.00 - 500.00$ or more on a speaker cables set, you should seriously consider giving these a try.
Not only do they look and sound great and but also measure great in every metric that effects sound: capacitance, inductance and resistance. The 4s11's design also greatly reduces EMI interference (more on this below).
More info on the 4s11:
The Canare 4S11 Star-Quad is one of the most popular cables ever. A favorite of music studios, DIYers, and audiophiles for over 20 years:
- Audioholics.com: "Excellent frequency response due to low capacitance and resistance. It also has appreciably lower inductance than standard 10 or 12AWG cable. The 4s11 measures well in all critical metrics which directly affect cable performance."
- The Star-Quad configuration eliminates virtually all EMI interference. Every conductor being located the same distance from the center, the opposing magnetic fields are cancelled out.
- Benchmark.com (known for DACs): "...the (4s11's) star-quad configuration reduces magnetic radiation and interference by about 20 dB, making this cable superior to 2-conductor cables."
- Despite being a 11ag cable, it’s very flexible and easy to work with
Available in various lengths and jacket colors. See pictures for available jackets.
