Didn't Dan have a pair in his Living Room system and loved them. I think he had a pretty good ear for speakers.

Why not use what Peter Thomas uses to voice his PMC speakers, plain copper cables.

If pmc uses plain jane copper wires inside, why do i
Still hear difference sound wise using different brands?
I mean....there should be no difference——right?, since
The signal being transmitted from the connector to the
Actual speakers by way of a plain copper wire is what
Relly counts...right?

Or maybe uprading the speaker cable inside may yield
More improvement?

Dont get me wrong, sound right now is glorious. Just
Wishfull thinking.

Peter has only been developing and testing his speakers for 30 years, he probably hasn't had time to consider using someting other than plain copper wire. Come to think about it, McIntosh has only been developing their gear for 75 years and they to are still using just plain copper wiring. If only PMC and McIntosh knew...

Here's another explanatory video

The first 15 min are also quite interesting but if you want to watch only the part about transmission line design then forward to 15:05

Here is a very good current review of the PMC MB2 SE. It provides more detail about why PMC speakerts are different from other transmission line designs and the advantages of transmission line over bass reflex.
