    I want to move my av amp to a spot under the tv but in order to do so will require 'extending' the speaker cable. This is because the cable for the 'rears' has been chanelled into the rear walls and comes out the wall next to where the amp currently is. There is not enough wire poking out the wall to move me Amp under the TV.

    Does anybody know if any way to connect two tables to make a longer one and does it introduce much signal degradation.

    Thanks

    Paul

    you can use standard electrical connecters (chocolate) type... not sure about signal loss though

    simple fact is IT DOES - ALWAYS! but then it depends on a lot of things - first is the quality of the connection & 2nd your ears!

    my advice: change the leads to longer ones - is that an option you'd consider?

    Pokerface,

    What type of cable is is?

    How are your soldering skills?

    As Sniper says all connections introduce degredation but with a bit of care it should be possible to ensure that it is imperceptible.
