    I have a mission m3 setup, my floorstanders use QED silver anniversary bi wire, and there was a lot of difference to the bell wire i first used. My centre and back speakers need new wiring.

    Any reccomendations? I could never afford to put the QED for the back ones, but would it be good for the centre speaker?

    I would use Silver Anniversary for the centre speaker to match the front mains but something like Ixos 607 for the rears. This is flat cable with a self adhesive strip down one side and is excellent for under the carpet or along skirting boards

    I use Silver Aniversary Bi-wire on my fronts but bog standard heavy duty Maplin speaker cable on my centre.
    Have wondered whether I should be bi-wiring my centre with the same as the fronts. Do you recon it makes a big difference ?

    I wouldnt know, but I can let you know tonight though. But I do know that when I changed my fronts from normal wire, to Silver ann bi-wire, it made a lot of diff.
