They include Norodst Odin 1 and Odin 2, Taralabs Grand Master Evolution, Audioquest Wel Signature, Vertere Pulse X and Wireworld Platinum Eclipse 7. They all have its own character and have some separate strong area. At the end of day, it really depends on what you prefer. No single wire can satisfy everyone. I can only summarize some of the main features of some cables. Odin1 / Odin2: Very detailed sound, particularly so with Odin2. Fine imaging and sound stage is pushed backward. Bass is bouncy but light, not for heavy metal lovers. Audioquest Wel Signature: Overall nice balance, but bass is a bit soft. Taralabs GME: Very thick sound. Bass is the heaviest of all but that offset the tonal balance. Treble is a little dim and imaging is not very strong. Vertere Pulse-X: Nice midrange, vocal is real life but the upper and lower octave expansion is not as good as other in this group. Wireworld Platinum Eclipse 7: The top two on my list, the other is Odin 2. It matches will well with Magico. Being a sealed box speaker, the bass can be a little light. Wireworld compensate on it making a very balance sound picture. After testing, I am now keeping Odin 2 and Wireworld for my own use.
I've tried a number of ICs and speaker cables including top of the line Synergistic Research Galileo, Vovox, Omnia Echole, Argento, MIT and custom made cables by 512 Engineering. Yes I agree with TLi, they all affect the final sound of the speakers, the Magico Q7mkII in my case. But in my experience no cables are perfect and no one cable is best under all circumstances and value propositions. At the top end, each cable has its strengths and weaknesses. And it will ultimately come down to your personal preferences, system compatability, and cost to value ratio.

My V3's and Accuphase E-600 have a very good synergy with NBS Omega Extreme I.
Bass is very deep and mid and highs are silky smooth, large soundstage and excellent resolution.

Negative point of these cables is that they are heavy and stiff, have to support them so that not all the weight is taken by the amp connections.

With Magico using MIT cables in their factory sound room why would you use anything else with your Magico's? You have to agree that Magico's are voiced with MIT.....

Thanks

I found the midbass too lean with MIT and my M-Pros so I switched to Kubala Sosna Elations and I'm very happy with them.

I'm probably the only one here who would do this but if I found myself with a pair of Magico S3's in the future I would use the same cables I do today which are...wait for it...wait for it....

Mogami 2921 The Horror!!

I use Mogami everywhere. No Salt/Pepper/Unicorn hide or Pixie dust added or needed. It does its job just fine and the money saved goes towards things that offer unmistakable audible advantages like speakers,amps,DAC's..etc

I think tuned Transparent Audio cables (XL series and above) are great match for Magicos. Some people do not like the full neutrality, transparency and detail of Magicos (some love it) with certain kind of music. I think TA cables tames Magicos in those areas and suits me better.

Magico doesn't need taming. You just need low noise floor from your system for them to shine.

RadioShack 18-gauge Speaker Cable will work fine.
