Too far away for me. If you were closer, I could give you a 5m pair of Supra Ply 3.4S to try out, unless you have done so already. Bit awkward and heavy to post too.

Check with Audio Sensibility in Toronto about their Testament speaker cables made with Furukama OCC copper. With the usual at least 10% discount coupon and the Canadian exchange rate you would be looking at about $500 US for a 5 meter pair. Also free shipping from Canada and a 30 day money back guarantee. In my system they bested the "equivalent" WW cable which was quite a bit more.

@john49, thanks for the offer. I've ordered a pair from eBay.
It's interesting that the Supras' are tinned copper just like the western electric and Deuland cables that are getting some recognition for being musical.
I'll keep you posted with my findings.
Thanks again.

I'm also interested in these recommendations as I will be looking for new cables soon for my Sopra 3.

I use Nordost Frey 2 between my Rogue ST 100 tube amp and Focal Diablos
I originally heard the Frey 2's demoed on some Sopra 2's they sounded very good!

I demoed my Sopra 3's on Audioquest Castle Rock, currently using DH Silver Sonic Q10 Signature, which performs very good for the price but I feel there is potential for improvement there. Haven't heard any of the Nordost cables yet. Audioquest Oak and Cardas Clear reflection were 2 of my considerations. The Castle Rock sounded very good during the demo, the Oak is a level up from that.
