    Does anyone use lektropaks speaker cable? what is it like? I was thinking of using their Bi-wire cable or a couple of runs of 129 strand as it is same price for the run I need. Are their Banna plugs any good? the all gold ones as they are a bit more expensive than RS. anyone know what Gale XL 160-2 is like as that is another option.:D :D :D
    Cheers HD

    Thanx m8t that is a great site, I might give that a go, anyone know where you can get CAT-5 with a nice outer insulation, grey just isn't me. I might have a go at some PS cable as well, awsome stuff.

    I have been reading about this cable all day now and have a couple of questions, using 3 or 6 strands of cat 5 per cable leaves alot of copper at each end, I think too much for onr banana plug so do you stack them up? If anyone has made these cables I would love to see some photos of what they look like.

    Hi mate,

    what you have to do is get a good pair of pliers and twist the strands together really tight (I know this is common sense).Its just what I did and had no problem with them fitting in any plugs

    But then again it depends on how big your plugs are.... They do fit and belive me you will hear a difference at half the cost.

    :D
