I just received my AA and Atomic CLR cab: I'm new to this setup so I didn't have XLR Cables. I used some 1/4 Amp cables: While I just started I must say I am pretty impressed: Since I can use regular guitar and speaker cables : What if an advantage are XLR? Less colored is a comment I read somewhere. Which sounded more like a selling pitch then actual truth. ANY OPINIONS

Ummm...what do you mean by "since I can use regular guitar and speaker cables"? You can use 1/4" male standard "guitar" cables, or standard XLR male x XLR female MIC cables, but neither of these are a speaker cable. I'm also assuming you got the powered/active CLR. The only real reason you'd prefer an XLR cable would be for long cable lengths to the CLR. For relatively short distances, 1/4" cables should be just fine, and sound no different for all intents vs. an XLR cable.

XLR can be better on longer runs (>15 feet), in locations with tons of interference, or situations where you want a more locking-style connector. Don't expect to hear any difference in most situations - particularly if you are going Amplifire > CLR.
