Do I need QED Silver Anniversary???




I'm very new to playing around with Home Cinema and have part bought, part inherited the below kit for my build (I know most of it is probably very old but in it's day it was good gear (wasn't it?)

ADVICE PLEASE!!! The burning question is...

To connect this lot up do I need to shell out on something like QED SIlver Anniversary, I've found a guy on eBay selling it for £3.60 a metre (if I buy 25 metres) which is cheap for half decent speaker cable but....based on the below kit list do I really need it to get the best out the kit or will a '£1 per metre' job do the trick for me? I've seen some cable on eBay, £1 per metre (
...will this really be up to it? Or do I go for the Silver Anniversary? I've already bought an IXOS Subwoofer cable but that's all the cable I have bought (so far!!!)

One more question - banana I need them? Pro's and Cons? QED Airlock or cheapos?

Thanks everyone! I'd really appreciate the benefit of your knowledge! :lease:

Here's what I've got:

Yamaha YST-SW80 Subwoofer
KEF Coda front speakers
AE centre speaker
Boston Acoustics VRS Micro rear speakers
Sony STR-DB930 amp

I use it on my kit and it is highly rated cable. For that price I'd say you'd be daft not to.

What's the alternative, spend £2 a metre on some cheap copper cable? Get the QED Silver Ann. would be my advice.

Chances are over the years you'll upgrade your system, the cheaper cable would then have to go, go for the QED and you'll be using it for years.
