    I built my system up with QED Silver micro cable but when I come to redecorate my living room next month I want to run the speaker cable under new flooring. What would you recommend I buy and do I need to replace all my speaker cable or can I just do this for the rears. Thanks.

    What flooring are you getting put in - IIRC, the silver micro cable is pretty thin anyway...

    Probably a thinnish carpet so it may well show through.

    QED Quntour Ultra Flat.

    Very very flat, can't be seen under our living room carpet.

    I use what used to be called Ixos 607 which is a very thin flat cable with self adhesive backing to one side which was specifically designed to go under carpets.

    Ixos still make it but it's now called something else.
