    Having always used the huge Cable Talk 3.1, which is more than twice the width of the Wallflower stands, who can recommend something similar to that which is supplied with the balls, but is too short for my set-up.

    I seem to remeber reading a thread that Maplins Electronics have a similar single strand cable for sale...

    Some interesting facts there...
    Especially the one about Oxygen free copper wire...

    What about oxygen free wire?

    Oddly enough, it isn't the freedom of oxygen in copper wire that makes any difference. The process of removing oxygen also removes the impurity of iron and it's this impurity that can cause the resistance to be slightly higher. The difference in resistance between copper wire and oxygen free copper wire is too small to be significant for speaker wiring. It can be considered to be ordinary copper wire as far as the recommended lengths of copper wire in the table. Oxygen free copper wire can be more expensive than ordinary copper wire.
