Do Expensive Cables Make A Difference?
The factors that could make a difference with expensive cables largely come down to things like their complex resistance and electromagnetic shielding, and the result is likely to be subtle to invisible. We simply haven’t done enough A/B testing to call it for sure.
Our take: if you’re spending a lot of money on your system, then there’s nothing wrong with spending a few extra bucks on cables. If you just want a set of basic speakers, or you’re on a budget, standard 16-gauge speaker wire will be just fine.
