    We brought speaker wire from Asda works fine and only paid £5:thumbsup:

    I would suggest you buy the cheapest wire you can find.
    Try somewhere like B & Q or Sainsburys homebase or the like.
    You can buy wire from there by the metre ( Used to be foot when I last bought :-D ) so you can get the lenghts you need.
    You can buy wire for £5.00 a metre but I doubt if most people can hear the difference they produce. :thumbsup:

    For a high end setup you will benefit from quality wiring. I would either point you in the direction of richer sounds, or poundland who do an (apparently) oxygen free copper roll for £1:whistling:

    yeah poundland has nice speaker wire for a quid

    used the poundshop stuff on my surround set up, absolutely fine.

    wilkinsons sell speaker wire by the meter, i have even seen bell wire used, so you could always go with the cheepest option
