So many options it's doing my head in.


So, just about finished the theater room and the cables I have at the moment are a little on the ugly side. Wanting something that is cleaner than what I currently have. I know you don't normally see speaker cabling but because of the way the room is set up, you walk in and see everything behind the unit, including all cabling. So I want to get something nicer than I currently have. Nice looking banana plugs etc. 12AWG. But I have no idea where to start looking given the options.




Any suggestions?

Some quite nice braided ones on aliexpress. If you want other lengths then the sellers can normally do that for you too. When dick smith were closing down they had a lot of ones cleared out, you might find someone offloading them on trdeme or whererver, but I have found the screw on banana plugs on them to be a bit too unscrew prone.

 I have some nice looking Belkin Pure AV speaker cable you can have for $50




Pretty sure mine is 4.9 meters but I can check tonight if interested.
