Bottom Line:   
(Review for the Pro 1200, bi-wired) This is an EXCELLENT cable, especially considering the price. In fact, I can't think of any speaker cable I've used near its price that beats it. Very good detail, no harshness or glare, and doesn't seem to add much of its own sound to the mix.

Bi-wired, the Pro 1200 is 2 sets of 11 AWG, and it's working well with my Quad 21L's. When I upgrade, I'll get this pair shotgun terminated and it will be 8 AWG for use on the bass, then use a single pair of Ultra, Reference, or Signature on the tweeters.

XLO's done it again!

Bottom Line:   
I found the XLO Pro 600 to be the best suited one for my system after trying out Monster Cable, VDH Clearwater and Cabletalk. I was looking for a cleaner sound (better transients, soundstage imaging)without harsh trebbles. XLO Pro 600 delivered here. My system; Audiolab 8000A MkIII Intergrated Amp, Arcam Alpha One CD Player, TDL RTL 2 Speakers, Kimber PBJ Interconnects, XLO Ref 10 Power Cords, Castle Powerline Filters. Equipments are all sitting on cones or spiked racks. Roger Skoff did a terriffic job here offering this cables of exceptional performance that doesnt break my bank account.

Bottom Line:   
I ordered XLO PRO 600 speaker cables from www.fatwyre.com on their recommendation. They were responding to my complaint about thinness
and treble harshness on some recordings on Magneplanar MMGs driven
by an NAD C340 (CD player: NAD 514).

I ordered the speaker cables together with a pair of XLO PRO 150
interconnects (see separate review).

The cables were shipped directly from XLO Electric. (They arrived with
one interconnect nonfunctional. I called XLO and they shipped out a new
pair immediately, which came two days later.)

I compared the XLO speaker cables to Monster Superflat Mini cables, with
the XLO 150 interconnects in place. (All cables were burned in.)
I did AB testing using two recordings with sharp treble content: Chopin's
Piano Concerto No. 2 - Allegro vivace (Martha Argerich; Montreal Symphony
Orchestra/Charles Dutoit; excerpt on April 99 Gramophone CD) and Mary
Chapin Carpenter, State of the Heart, track 3: Never Had It So Good.

This was not very scientific, i.e., not ABX. I could not be sure there was
a difference between the Monster and XLO speaker cables.

The XLOs look like audiophile cables, whereas the Monsters look like
something you'd pick up at your local hardware store. (They're white and
flat and would be good to run along a white baseboard.)

To paraphrase Jerry Seinfeld on another subject, I knew it was a
gamble going in.
