    Guys & Gals,
    Newbie here looking for help!!! I'm in the middle of redecorating the front room (well thats what I told her.... good chance to install the home cinema I always wanted...!!).

    Any way I've accumulated the following kit:
    B&W sppeakers: LCR60 s3 (Centre), DM602.5 (Fronts) and CWM650 (Rears - 'In-wall')

    Denon 4306 Receiver.

    My question is this..... will I get any signal loss / quality degradation if I run the QED silver XT rear speaker cable through a channel in the screed floor (then level)? I remeber my parents having problems with their broad band cable link to their computer when it 'touched' the floor?

    Any help gratefully received - laying the cable is the next phase....... tools down waiting further info!!!

    Fish:lease:

    Hi:hiya:

    I had to cut a channel in my concrete floor to lay the following cable - HDMI, Component and Audio.

    This was over a 8M run and I have had no problems with the video or sound (great considering the cables are together!)

    I have not covered the channel up (I cut it deep enough so it was flush under the carpet).

    Hope this helps :thumbsup:
