Quote from: Hidden SimplesSo I expect the first thing you tell your customers when you sell them new speakers is to rip out the wiring and rewire them. ? And while your at it, may as well change the the drive unit. I mean if they can't get something as simple as the wiring right, what chance have they got with the drive units.None. Think about it, the wiring is the least expensive and easiest to do. Even somebody whos know bugger all about speakers could get this bit right, and at no extra cost. Yet well repected speaker manufactures have no idea what is good wire and not so good wire.Next time you get the rep in from Dyanaudi kipper ask him and post his reply on the forum.In fact I'm going to phone Dyaudio tomorrow and ask them.This is what I will say.I have just bought some Dynaudio speakers and I have been told by a Dynaudio retailer ( kipper ) that the the wire you use in your speakers is not really up to the mark and he thinks it would be a good idea to rewire them.I will also ask them why they don't use high quality cable when they make them in the first place, as it would'nt cost them anymore and would save me a lot of time.
Quote from: Hidden It is a simple job and there are many reasons why a particular manufacturer might avoid certain cables and instead choose something "simple". Re-wiring takes no skill and a few tools and there's no reason why you shouldn't have a go if you feel up to it and the product is out of warranty.I'm all ears kipper. What are the many reasons ? And if the manufacturs have many reasons, why should someone who has never designed, manufactured, and knows bugger all about louadspeakers know better. ?It dosen't make sense to me. They keep telling us how much R&D goes into their kit and its a no compromise this and that.State of the art drive units and cabinet design, but they can't get the internal wiring right.Have you rewired your speakers kipper ?I just don't get it.

Oh and another thing you can do is replace the crap connectors on the back of many speakers with decent ones. Cheap as chips. And I don't mean Dynaudio Gios.
Please do if you think it will enlighten you. And they are certainly the experts on Dynaudio. Finally; most connectors that look really crappy are not doing a proper job. I did not say ALL by the way.
