Hello all,

Hidden mains wiring is twin and earth single core, the best one for audio use is 1.5 mm/2 which is 1.8mm diameter
It'll take 15 amps at 240 volts errr that's a whole lot of Watts

I didn't believe it either, until I tried and laughed my socks off

Cheers - J

Hi, I'm sure this will start a row with some folks, but I personally have not found expensive botique cables any better than lots of low cost cables. Not the 10 cents per foot big box store stuff though. Another "cool" cable posted a while back on the web was made from the 3 wire outdoor 40 foot extension cables from Walmart. I use several types, but mostly 14 gage audio cable rated for in wall use. My system is definitly high end but I figure if you pay more than say $3-5 per meter for cables you are making someone else very happy and taking a ding on your bank account. :eek:

Good listening
