Hi, Newbie here. First time setting up proper home theater after using Vizio's for a decade and need some feedback and guidance. 1) how important it is to not lose copper strands when stripping wires. I have 16 gauge ofc wire and Everytime I see I am losing strands when I strip it. Do we lose quality? I am connecting this with banana plugs. 2) feedback on my setup - Yamaha 679, Polk 505sw, pioneer ps52 floor speakers, pioneer SB c22 center, fluance avbp2 surround. Appreciate any pointers. My room is 22*15.
