    I'm having an extension built as a home cinema room. For a 7 speaker setup, the electrician has run 7 lengths of QEDsilver anniversary cable to each speaker behind a stud wall and under the floor.

    However, I now realise, for convenience, he has run several feet of the 7 cable together in parallel in a bundle.

    Will there be significant interference which will affect performance? Its done now, it would be a major upheavel to undo this :mad: .

    Mains cables are not part of the bundle.

    Don't panic, as buns says, as long as it isn't run parallel to any 240v cable you'll be fine...
