    Hi

    I have a sony surround system and needed to extend the cables. The standard cables are silver and have a clear jacket. What type of wire could I use to extend the cable? Would copper cable do or would it cause problems due to its resistance? Also, whats the best method to connect 2 wires?

    I'd suggest replacing them with longer cables rather than joining/extending.

    Cable type won't make a difference & there's lots of reasonably inexpensive speaker cable around. Have a look at some of the sponsors' sites for ideas/pricing.

    OFC (oxygen free copper) is supposedly of higher quality but with all things like this is as much a marketing tool as anything else.

    Depends very much on your system but any decent quality speaker should be OK. I'm sure others will give names/prices later as I'm off out now for a drink to celebrate the departure of george w. from our shores :thumbsup:

    If your Sony system is a DAV all in one I doubt whether the difference between OFC and copper cable will be audible.
