im in the process of setting up my home cinema system. Naturally i dont want to cost cut on speaker cable to the 6 speakers. but after looking at QED's cables and prices this is going to add a lot to the budget some £150 worth of cable reqd. this brought back a memory...... Some 15 years ago i visited a pro audio manufacture. After commenting on the quality of there speakers in there demo labs and asking the cost of the speakers (£20,000), i was curious to know what cable they used to drive them. it was 3 core mains cable u can buy from B&Q for next to nothing. u know that solid copper stuff that supplies all your leccy in the house. i was amazed and this chap said it was as good as the most expensive cable out there. if u want to waste your money on expensive cable then go ahead. this stuff is just as good. on that memory im off to look at the diy's shop stock. anyone else used mains cable for there speakers ???
