Opinions on DH-Lab speaker cables?

Some white cotton braid could be nice... I'll get egged for saying it but it might actually sound better, too. [ducks]

Where would you get large enough braid for this type of thing? I thought about shoelaces but then John's shoes would be falling off.

Ok they got back to me (quickly!). I can buy the tech flex and send it to them, and they'll assemble my cables with it. Hooray. They even gave the specifics of what to get.
That's some pretty killer customer service.

Contacted DH-labs directly, they sell direct. The techflex is available at a variety of places, heatshrink.com is the link they sent me but also mentioned others. I've ordered it from a place before as well, don't remember where though.
 
hey great to know that dh-labs works like this. i may wait to hear how yours goes before placing an order.

They mentioned they'd only done it one time eight years ago but didn't seem too put off by the idea. Somebody had the same request but they'd used all the white tech flex they'd had.

I'm always going to shill for Blue Jeans Cable as the best bang for the buck when it comes to speaker cable and interconnects. Nothing fancy, just good semi-professional / professional parts (Beldon, Canare, etc.) well-assembled and inexpensively priced.

I'm coming to this a bit late, but I used the T-14 for a while. I moved on to Kimber 8TC and then to Analysis Plus Copper Oval. The T-14 might best the Kimber in some systems, for my taste.

I have some older Kimber actually. I could maybe put a white jacket around it. It’s blue/black braid. I used it in my bedroom for years but never thought much about it. Two pairs of it came with my Quads when I bought them.
 
I'm running Kimber at the moment myself--no complaints and I can't be bothered to upgrade any further. 😁
