I am moving house and am soon going to be setting up my HC in a new room.:thumbsup: Looking at doing all the speaker cable runs using network cable.

With all the different types available I just wondered what the best stuff to use would be.

Thanks for any help.


I'll move this to cabling for you as you might get more response :)
