    Hi morsefull,

    when I've used twin and earth for speaker cable I've gone for the 1.5mm2 solid core stuff. its quite inflexible but does a good job for buttons.

    Why twin and earth? I tried that years ago and didn't think it was the best route to take. You can get a remarkably good sound from a reel of Maplins speaker cable which normally retails around £10 for something like 10M...
    Can't remember the exact cost and length but it's cheap as chips compared to any *cheap* QED cable like 79 strand.
