    If you looking for some cheap (good/reasonable quality?) speaker cable, this may be of interest:

    TRANSPARENT HEAVY DUTY SPEAKER CABLE
    High quality flexible speaker cable in transparent sheath. Stranded OFC conductors. Red polarity indicators. Supplied on 100Mtr roll.

    I've just ordered 100m; never used them before so can't comment on service etc.. Also ordered some gold-plated banana plugs for 80p each. :smashin:

    Charged 37.75 + 10 delivery. Cable arrived yesterday: 'looks' good (don't know what is sounds like yet; will hook-up later today). 2x326x0.1mm conductors. Looks like Gale XL315 except the 3mm spacer is absent between the 2 conductors.

    Good find: I like free delivery; what's the web-link?

    good site for future ref, thanks. Exact same cable by the way. I wired the 5.1 system up last night; definately a different sound from the cabletalk 3 but I put this down to changing speaker arrangements (closer to wall; more bass). Can't complain for the price...

    How guys,

    Just wondering if you guys would have any spare?
    I'm looking for probably around 10-20m of the 2.5mm stuff,but obviously wouldn't need 100m of it!

    Cheers,

    Cheng

    Yeah I suppose, but wouldn't you guys have some spare, if you've bought 100m ? :) Cos then it would be like 50p a metre, rather than £1.25! And ridding you guys of any spare cable that you don't need!
