    I have just bought the following hardware and I need to purchase additional speaker wire as the wire supplied as part of the Tannoy kit does not prove adequate.

    Sharp 42" XD1E LCD Television
    Onkyo 505 Receiver
    Denon 1930 DVD Player
    Tannoy EFX 5.1 Speaker Set c/w 25M Speaker Wire

    Cables Already Purchased

    2 x QED HDMI-P 1.0M Cable

    I have found this speaker cable, I think it's a no-brainer but I thought I would get it checked by you guys. http://www.hificables.co.uk/Product...D/2393/v/6cfbd168-0298-4160-9520-aeef783b45ab

    I also need to get a cable from the receiver to the sub and found this one. http://www.hificables.co.uk/Product...D/2378/v/6cfbd168-0298-4160-9520-aeef783b45ab

    If you need flat cable then it looks fine. Otherwise, just about anything with enough cross-sectional area will do (e.g. 1.5m2 two core mains cable). I used Cat5 but it's a bit more hassle.

    Sub cable looks fine assuming you need the small size - I confess I've found that useful when I've not had behind the wall cabling.

    Cheers
