speaker wires

Speaker wires are cables from an amplifier to speakers use stranded wire in sizes from 18 gauge (thinnest) to 12 gauge (thickest). Up to distances of 100 feet, 14-gauge and 16-gauge lamp cord is commonly used, which ranges from USD $0.25 to $0.50 per foot. However, enthusiasts spend a small fortune on audiophile-grade cables, which can cost virtually any amount. In fact, a pair of 8-foot speaker cables has been on the market for as much as USD $4,000. Pundits claim they can hear the difference in high-end cables, while most people cannot. See audiophile and A/V receiver.
