Best jumper upgrades for LSiMs?

Hi guys.

Just wondering what the best upgrade choices would be to upgrade the jumpers on the stock LSiMs?

Are there are any affordable options that would produce a noticeable improvement in sound quality?

    Here are two (8 inch or 16 inch) reasonable options from Zu Audio that usually sell for about $30-40 at auction end. I put them on two different Paradigm sets. One set was Studio 60; one set Monitor 7. Better than the straps. They are well made.

    I have a set of Zu jumpers I can let go of. I also bought them from their eBay auction for 35.00 plus shipping. Only reason i removed them was i went to all DH labs 14ga. silver clad OCC copper internally so i bought a 12ga set of the same for my binding post.

    The best connection by far, is to simply Eliminate the dual binding post option, and combine the internal crossover connections to ONE specific pair of posts and use ONLY that post.

    Eliminates any connection issues, and is not only the best way to do it for lack of connection issues, but is free.

    Not to dispute the assertion that it's the best way, but I would hardly call it free, especially if one has to de-solder the connections and reconnect them to one set of posts. It also involves taking the binding post plates out, and there may be lots of folks who are not comfortable taking a screwdriver to their speakers.

    I eliminated the jumper issue by just buying a set of bi-wire speaker cables. Done.
    Yes, I know I wasted my money doing that, good thing I am not poor and destitute yet... ;)
    So, are you willing to put forth a little effort or are you happy sitting in your skeptical poo pile?

    Bi-wire?
    If this is directed at my post, that's what I thought they were called?

    Banana plugs into the amp (1 red & 1 black), spade terminals at the speaker end (2 red & 2 black). If that's not the correct terminology, I'm all for additional education. :)

    I agree! Not totally free (my way) and your way may be better at a slight cost!
    You have half the resistance (with double wires) and do not have to mess around with anything technical.

    I picked up some Zu Audio jumpers a while back for my LSi15's. They seem very well made and very robust. I can't swear that they made a lot of difference in sound but it couldn't hurt.
