Default Eclipse 8 Speaker Cable replaces Blue Jeans/Belden 10 gauge

Cue up Cole Porter’s “Night and Day”, and you have a succinct summary of my reaction to the replacement of my bedroom system’s Blue Jeans/Belden 5T00UP 10-gauge speaker cable by Wireworld’s 9-gauge Eclipse 8.

To be fair, a Grand Canyon-wide price gap separates the Blue Jeans from the Wireworld. But as I’ve learned in playing with audio since acquiring a Fisher 500C receiver at the Subic Bay Navy Exchange 54 long years ago, the higher-priced spread may indeed produce “different” without achieving “better”--or, in a few instances, “even as good”. That, however, is not the case here. The Eclipse 8 wins out in every aural, spatial, and gut-response respect, and the comparison is not even close.

What led me to consider replacing the Blue Jeans was my experience with the Eclipse 8 interconnects that replaced Eclipse 7s in the bedroom system. If I could achieve the improvements in greater tonal accuracy and a more transparent, closer-to-the-performance spatial presentation with one-generation-newer Wireworld interconnects, how much more might I be able to realize with their speaker-cable equivalent installed in place of the overachieving budget cable that has stood me in what I consider good stead over the last several years?

After consultation with a wizard named Ivan the Magician, I ordered a 3-meter-long set of banana-terminated Eclipse 8 speaker cables. By the time they arrived, I’d already put more than 130 playing hours on the new interconnects, so I deemed those burned in enough to mentally “bake in” their sonic signature—or more aptly, the absence of same, given their uncolored transparency--before I began evaluating the speaker cable.



As suggested by the photo above, the Eclipse 8’s diameter is just a few centimeters shy of that of a garden hose. The cable’s also not quite as flexible as what I water my rhododendrons through, though I had no problem snaking it into the bottom bay of the system’s equipment cabinet for connection to the c-j Sonographe SA250 amp’s aftermarket-installed Cardas speaker terminals.

The cables are “directional”, and raised black letters stamped onto the black cable-separator housing at each end identify “AMP END” and “SPEAKER END”, respectively, to guide the user in connecting them for optimal performance.

There are banana plugs, and there are banana plugs. Those installed on the Eclipse 8 provide the tightest, most secure fit I’ve ever encountered with that termination type. Each plug required more than a little “push” to seat it totally inside its corresponding banana jack. The photo below shows how the cable connects to the system’s right Paradigm Studio 20. Note that the nearest plug still has a way to go, though even in that state it didn’t wiggle when touched. After shooting the photo, I gave that plug one more grunt-assisted push to fully seat it. I’m convinced that there’s no way in you-know-where that the plugs will break signal contact short of a major catastrophe.



The 13’x11’ bedroom is my primary “critical” listening venue, and my ever-tolerant spouse has allowed me to transform it into a virtual Stonehenge populated with GIK megaliths to tame its ruder acoustic impulses. The equipment complement is modest, consisting largely of winning-eBay-bid used and “customer-return” components (DAC, amp, and speakers) forming a music reproduction chain fed by a laptop that outputs 16/44 CD rips and high-resolution (24/48 through DSD128 and 24/352.4) music files via JRiver Media Center 24.

While I didn’t finalize my assessment of the Eclipse 8 speaker cables until I’d burned them in for at least 100 hours with 13-hour-per-day continuous playback of a variety of orchestral and massed choral scores, I sneaked in some listening sessions along the way. And I wasn’t the only one.

At about Hour Eight, my wife auditioned the Turtle Creek Chorale’s performance of Leonard Bernstein’s “Make Our Garden Grow” from “Candide” (16/44 rip, Reference Recordings), the same track she had used to determine that the Eclipse 8 interconnects offered “clearer” output than what she’d heard with the Eclipse 7 ICs in place. Now, with the new speaker cable installed, she listened through the entire track without comment before pronouncing her pithy judgment: “There’s no stress.”

That succinct assessment articulates what’s even far more evident now with the Eclipse 8 speaker cables after more than 120 playback hours: a sense of effortless reproduction of whatever program is thrown at the system. And with “no stress” comes--particularly with recordings engineered to convey the boundaries and “feel” of the recording venue itself--(1) a soundstage that’s not only broader and deeper, but also more palpably three-dimensional, layered, and ambience-rich “airy”, (2) vocal and instrumental tonality that breathes “purer” and more timbrally nuanced across the frequency spectrum, and (3) a sensation of compression-free dynamics, whatever the range of the dynamic swing in, say, Manfred Honeck’s recent Grammy-award reading of Shostakovich’s Fifth Symphony (24/192 download) or Bernstein’s reading of his symphonic suite from his “On the Waterfront” film score (24/192 remastered download of the excellent Howard Scott-produced 1960 Columbia release).

If you’ve followed my accounts of the bedroom system’s piece-by-piece upgrade journey over the last year-and-a-half, you may have noted a recurring theme: how each upgrade has improved the illusion of being able to reach in and touch the performers. That’s not just an imaging or soundstage thing. It also reflects just how realistically voices and instruments “breathe” their individual tonalities and sonorities—bottom to top, bass drum to brushed cymbals--into the space around them to create a sense of what I call “within-the-room musical presence”.

Given the placement and acoustic limitations of my listening space, I thought I had wrung out all of that “being-there” sensation I could possibly hope for with the Eclipse 8 interconnect/Blue Jeans speaker-cable combination in place. Wrong—by a wide margin. With anything approaching decently-recorded program, the Eclipse 8 speaker cable has “disappeared” the Studio 20s well beyond what I’d achieved with the earlier configuration.

Happiness is.

Thanks, Ivan. You were right. As usual.

Jim... what an enjoyable read; I am very pleased to know the Eclipse 8’s have raised your audio bar even higher.

Great write up, thanks for sharing!

I too, am using Blue Jean cable/Belden 10ga....With your post, I now know, what I thought was a great cable (BJC) you have convinced me there is more room to grow my system.

"Grow" is apt, Joe. One immediately apparent difference was the expansion of the perceived physical scale of a given performance, not least with large-ensemble program (orchestral, massed choral, "big" film scores, big band, opera). Venues "grew" larger, and so did instruments, which achieved a more realistic size from the standpoint of a listener seated in, say, Row L or M of a concert hall or closer up in a jazz club.

Jim.......I am happy to read of you and your wife's excitement and satisfaction with the new Wireworld Eclipse speaker cables. Your description paints a realistic picture of the improved sonic cues, transparency, and dynamics that I understand completely. Congratulations on a wise speaker cable upgrade.

By the way, I have shopped audio gear in the Subic Bay Navy Exchange, too. To this day I still use a silverware set I purchased in that Exchange. Sounds like you were there during the same period I was, mid to late '60's. The Subic Bay Navel Station was our overseas home port during the Vietnam war. I served on the aircraft carrier USS Coral Sea, CVA-43.

Dan, sounds like we missed each other by a few months. WestPac deployment March-October 1964 as EMO aboard USS Turner Joy, DD-951 (yes, that Turner Joy). Purchased the 500C shortly before we headed home to Long Beach. We'd plane-guarded Coral Sea during a couple of underway training stints off the California coast in 1963.

No question that completing the bedroom system's Wireworld loom with the Eclipse 8s has been an absolute delight.

That makes three of us, though I was there 48yr ago on the USS Enterprise, CVAN-65. By then there was no Fisher gear that I recall and I purchased a Sony STR-6200F receiver, which I should have kept.

Will be updating some headphone cables once WW introduces their next-gen models in 2019.
