I have just returned from the UK and have finally started setting up my AV room.
I have all the amps and speakers - but need to find some good speaker cable (aka $20 a metre).

While in the UK I came across a brand of speaker cable called Van Damme (VDC)- That several forums their raved about.

Was wondering if there was a local supplier?

Any help would be appreciated.

$20 per metre is moderately priced?! Surprised

I just use this stuff:

Sorry it's not the one you're after but it's 1/5th the price you suggested. I havn't seen that Van Damme brand of cable for sale here either sorry.

Looking at it, that stuff seems overpriced to me (kinda like Monster) but I'm no audiophile, so cant really commenty on whether it's worth what they charge

Im sure someone better qualified could shed some more light
