I'm currently using bell wire, so expect any proper cable will offer a significant improvement. I am somewhat budget limited and can't afford to spend more than £3.00 / metre absolute tops. I need a cable that will easily fit between the gripperrod and the skirting boards. The longest run in the room is 12m. Our kit is worth £500 max (scaled up to today's prices). I was orginally thinking of going down the QED route and had a shortlist of the silver micro, the bronze edition and the original. Feedback I have received so far suggests that the original is the safest choice. Are there any other makes I should consider? (e.g I see the Van Damme Blue seems to be fairly highly rated, although I can't tell whether it will be small and flexible to run along the gripperrod.) Is it worth considering micro cable or am I better looking at 2.5mm2 cable?
