I bought a set of Wireworld Eclipse cables to drive my Sopra No2's, and have been happy with them, use the banana plugs to connect.

So with my speakers and equipment pretty well broken in (3 to 400 hours) and isolated (Herbie's products). I'm ready to upgrade speaker cables. I'm happy with the performance and tone of the system and I don't feel anything needs to be corrected with the cables themselves. Just looking for that next level of performance that could potentially be had. A few cables I was considering were AQ Castle Rock Comet or Oak, WW Silver Eclipse, and Cardas Clear reflection. Neutrality and maintaining the systems personality as is, is my priority. Any other suggestions?

So after demoing a few cables on my speakers at my dealer, including bringing my current one in for comparison, I brought home a pair of Audioquest Oaks for a home demo, and decided to order them.
