You can always contact WW thru their website. They are very responsive to inquiries.

Default need help in the cable jungle

I found some videos on youtube that show the different cables and their size.
This might be useful. But I am late with that remark, I know.
Eclipse, Silver Eclipse and Gold Eclipse have about the same size. Mini Eclipse is much smaller. And Platinum is much bigger.
Right?

Some cables from the 7 series are on sale, and I am wondering if I should get one (yes, two, I should get two). But, what are their sound charateristics?
I have the different Powercords (Stratus, Aurora, Electra, Silver Electra) and the sound is clearly different (besides from being better). This must be related to the differences of composition: copper, and copper with silver, and silver, etc.
Question: the sonic picture of the mini-Eclipse, Eclipse and Silver Eclipse must be more neutral, and more or less the same, but that of the Gold Eclipse (made of silver... very tricky) must be much more transparent, no?
Yes, I know, I should buy the Platinum Eclipse...
I already have the mini-Eclipse and wonder if I remain in the same sound character.
Any help?
Thanks!

What is "much bigger" in your mind? Use google to look up the cross-sectional area of the various cables you have listed (both Kimber & WW list the 'gauge' of their cables) and see the difference. If that equates to "much bigger" to you, then you will know what you are looking at. However, you will also need to take into account the differences in both conductors used (Cu, Ag coated Cu & Ag) and the plastic insulation (a big factor in the 'size' of the cable) and conductor orientation. However, to actually 'test' the differences would quite expensive and you can't listen with someone else's ears. Based on info from Ivan, I went with two (2) 12' pairs of the Mini speaker cables to run a true bi-wire configuration from amp to speaker and could not be happier with the cost-effective results compared to any of the Eclipse bi-wire cables. They replaced a pair of Nordost "Valhalla-like" silver coated 'flat' wire cables and were a very noticeable step up in SQ. While I was a Kimber user in the past and received good support, WW (and Ivan's) support has been nothing but 'over the top' and I prefer what I'm hearing from WW today and have no reason to try another marque.
YMMV.

Just plugged a pair of Wireworld Silver Eclipse 7 speaker cables (that I just bought without testing, but after reading your comments) in my Focal Scala Utopia v2 speakers. Wow, this is a good cable! Can the Gold Eclipse or the Platinum Eclipse be much better?

Congrats!
Do know that my pair of Platinum 7 ICs are clearly a step up from my Silver & Gold 7s. Its only money.

Yes, I guess they are better. But I think the Silver Eclipse are about the level that is adequate between the smallest Accuphase pre-power-amp combo (2120-4200) and the smallest Utopia standing speakers ...
The day I get a pair of Grande Utopia and the 3850's with big mono-block A-class amps, I will think about the Platinum Eclipse loudspeaker cables... after a lotto win.
