    Hi there,

    I recently swapped from a Meridian 500 system to a Naim Atom. I'm overall very pleased with this but have a problem with the speaker cables.

    I kept my Living Voice Avatar speakers which I bought at the same time as the Meridian. The cables came with the speakers - these are Electrofluidics Monolith 20/20 - and they were excellent with the Meridian power amp but causing poor performance with the Naim. Most of the articles I've read cite that these cables are not suited for Naim kit.

    So looking for suggestion on alternatives, without breaking the bank. I swapped over these cables with a pair of basic Audioquest 14/4 cables and even that made a remarkable improvement.

    Secondly, are these cables worth selling or will they be consigned to the hifi graveyard box? I have four cables for bi-wiring.

    Thanks
