For: Everything bar...
Against: ...it not being available as bi-wire
Verdict: This is as good a cable as you'll find at the price

This excellent-value cable comes from amp maker NVA in single runs (NVA doesn't like its amps used for bi-wiring), and employs seven individually insulated solid-core silver alloy conductors, the whole wrapped in a webbing sleeve. The LS1 opens up the sound like you're removing dark glasses while looking at the moon - the bloom of an orchestra improves, instruments become more alive. Detail and bandwidth are exemplary. A cracking cable.
