    I have a nice Misson FS-2 AV speaker set which I am very pleased with. However there was nowhere near enough cable supplied for me to place the rears where I wanted them...

    The speakers come with special flat cable that has 5 fine strands of copper for each terminal. Do I need exactly the same type of cable to ensure correct sound output or will any decent cable do the job?

    Any recommendations of where to buy from and what to buy? I want to make sure I get the right stuff first time - there seem to be so many different types!

    Thanks

    as im sure others will agree, QED silver 25th anniversary cable is the best for the money. its £5 a metre yet eminates the same kind of quallity of a £30 cable. its a very musical and detailed cable. but then maybe you would find that too harsh. i find it great though.

    Thanks...I'll have a look, although it means spending alot on cable at the end of the day! As for spending £30 per metre <img src="eek.gif" border="0">
