The Gauge and the coating, but in general there all the same. Also depending how long the runs are, if you want to go hardcore get a THX certified cable.

There are many factors in home theater that make good sound, wire is just one. It wont be the breaking point if it isnt great, but it cant hurt. If you are going to spend the $$ on good wire, buy ends.

yeah i already read that.
when he said ends, i figured he meant some type of connector, but apparently that isnt what ends mean. so he said ends, but they recommend connectors [img]/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

buy decent wires for a decent system. for a top end one buy top end cables.
a stero system is like a chain. it has to all connect and the weak links compromise something.
