    Hi,

    Has anyone any experience of very thin speaker cable that are either wall papered over or painted for use with rear speakers?

    cheers

    I got some of the Accoustic Research stuff from Maplin (I think it was branded Ross), but they may have stopped doing it. It works very well, but if you're just painting over it it will show depending on how the light falls. I taped over it with 2" wide white insulating tape and then painted that, which softened the edges a bit and does make it invisible to casual observers. Under patterned wall paper I think it would be fine.

    www.beyondhifi.net used to do that stuff as well, but have stopped too, I believe. I think CPC still do it, but it's very expensive (certainly compared to how much Beyondhifi used to do it for).

    Yup, that's the stuff - remember to add VAT to the price.
