BobL Tech: Speakers and speaker wire (43) RE: Tech: Speakers and speaker wire 08 Dec 19

A noted audio engineer - Douglas Self IIRC - put it neatly into perspective when he described "audiophiles" spending hundreds of pounds on OFC speaker cables that make no measurable difference, in ordr to listen to MP3 tracks. Personally I've found ordinary 2-core mains cable does the job perfectly - just don't have any mains rewiring jobs on the bench at the same time!

Incidentally I lost my faith in audio magazines when one did some comparative sound quality tests on optical cables. And claimed to find differences between them. Your ears are the ultimate test they say, trouble with ears is they're connected to the human brain, which is notoriously unreliable.
