Can't decide which. Your opinions please.
I have: Harbeth 7ES, Oyaide cabling, Bryston B135 cubed, BCD 3.

Thank you all !

I don't know your specific Harbeths. But I have owned the Audio Sensibility Statement speaker cables and still have Vivats.

Both are great. For me, the AS Statements had a touch more body. The Vivats are very balanced, very detailed and very open.

I spent more than a year with the Statements and have had the Vivats for almost a year now.

Hope that helps!

I add two pair of Vivat, very fast speaker cables, was very nice with efficient speakers like Klipsch and Zu Audio.

But, not a good mach with Magnepan, you really should try them before to buy... :shock:

Good luck...

I loved the BIS Maestro's, so the Vivat's can only be better.

The BIS Maestro's is a little more open in the mid, the Vivat have a stronger bass, more slam.

Both are very good but different. :)
