    I need about 20m for my Home Cinema System but the wire needs to be flat as it is going under my living room carpet.

    Many Thanks. ;)

    Thanks for the replies. Nordost is my personal favourite at the moment but it is muchas moulla.

    I'm thinking of the Nordost2 Flat at about £4.99/m but the quest continues. :)

    Hi Resb
    If nordost is your favourite, check out PJ hi-fi they have 17 meters of Nordost Flatline Gold bi-wire for £195 in the special offers section ;) that's £11.47 per meter
    Great cable I use it for my fronts :)

    If you want to spend lots of money, then Nordost it is. That QED Qontour looks promising. But for 20m, the gauge of the wire is more important than the brand name. I suggest 14AWG as the maximum, the lower the better.

    On that note this one looks promising. :) I wonder how wide it is as I have to feed it through the hollow tube of a rear AG rear speaker stand. Could do with it in black too.

    Don't want much do I?

    Yes it does.1.13mm =less than 16awg.(around 17awg)
    But he doesn't say if its 20m for each speaker or in total,its more likley to be 20m in total.

    Oh...in that case, that gauge is not good enough for a 20m wire for each speaker...look elsewhere. But if it's 20m total, then it would suffice.

    I'm intending to lay 3 x 6m lengths (appx) and the cable is entiely for the rear speakers which are the Anthony Gallo Nucleus Micro's.

    esquire415 - Thanks for the links, checking them out now. :)
