    Where's the best place to buy speaker cable from on the net. I'm looking for something like Cable Talk 3.1 Bi-wire or similar.

    Cheers

    Trying to get a better idea of the sound quality of the maplin cable, is it on a par with that such as the cable talk mentioned above?

    BTW i'm gonna be using this cable with the pioneer d2011 amp and mission 773e speakers.

    Hi superhuman,

    I am in the process of moving house and have some Talk 3.1 biwire which will probably not be long enough for the new house.

    How much do you need? I have my front three speakers done with it - approximately

    3m x2
    1m x1

    If you are interested LMK and i will get exact measurements tonight.

    Tim

    Sorry I'll measure it tonight,

    was very busy last night packing and it slipped my mind as it is hidden it conduit. If it anything to go by I think I bought 7.5m and the centre speaker looks just over 1m so hopefully they are all a bit longer than I said.

    Suppose offers at about £25 ehat do you think? It really is no different to if you bought it new.

    I'm at uni in manchester at the moment and don't have a car so you would have to deliver the cable to me if that were possible which i presume it isn't.

    sorry about that...try it now.

    For some reason it never tells you that it has become full. It only says that you failed to receive a message because it is full...seems a bit arse about face to me but there you go...
