We often put a lot of emphasis on what we see when being entertained by our home theatre setups, and with the advent of 3D and 4K televisions on the commercial market, that emphasis is only getting stronger. But the truth of the matter is that what we're watching only accounts for about a third of the experience! Imagine how much less impressive your favourite films would be if you had to sit on a stool and forgo any drinks or snacks you might otherwise enjoy. Now imagine having to watch something with the sound off! It would lose all its punch, all its emotion - everything.
So, now you can understand why it's important to not only have a decent set of speakers, but to also feed them with high-quality input via the right gauge of wire for the level of sound you need to fill your lounge room. This particular 14AWG speaker wire is of the highest 99.98% oxygen free quality, with 2 individually jacketed cores, colour-coded and wrapped in a white outer jacket. Designed for in-wall installations, this cable is perfect for entire entry- to mid-level home theatre systems, or for the rear and surround channels on larger, more powerful equipment. Almost any bare-wire speaker connection can benefit from this cable!
Furthermore, if you're searching for which grade of speaker cable to purchase, as a rule of thumb, if you've spent under $2500 on your speakers and you aren't running long distances, Avencore's 14 Guage speaker cable will provide outstanding audio transmission.

Product Review by Gary,
Thanks for the fantastic service on my recent purchase.
Ordered HDMI over CAT5/6 Extender system and cables one morning delivered to Perth the next morning. Have installed the unit and it works perfectly giving full 1080p HDMI over a 20 meter link using cat6e cables. (cables used 1 x 3m HDMI 2 x 15m cat6e 1x 2m HDMI - total link length 20M)
I would not hesitate to recommend this product or the Cable Chick team service to anyone needing to extend a HDMI link or for any cables in general all components I ordered were of good quality, worked perfectly and were very well packed for delivery.

Product Review by Arthur,
Hi to all the home theatre junkies out there.
I recently purchased the High-End Gold Plated Banana Plugs from Cable Chick for the back of my AVR. If youve ever cringed at the thought of disconnecting your speaker cables then these are the bad-boys you want. At $5.95 each theyre a bargain
forget overpriced Monster plugs, just get these and put an end to the contortions you need to put your body through
no to mention the wondering if theres an loose wire poised at shorting out your speakers. Not only are they practical in saving your back and putting your mind at rest, they add a little bling to the back of your AVR. J
Seriously, they do everything the specs claim (I used 12AWG easily) and the plugs sit firm the in connector
really nice. Thanks to Cable Chick, they brought something previously cost-prohibitive to within my reach.

I've heard that when doing home theater that all the speaker cables are to be of the same length to keep maximum sound quality over distance? is this true?
"For Home installations (with cable runs of only 10-20 metres) there is no issue with variations of cable lengths. There are many other factors which would come into play in regards to sound quality before you would ever consider the variances in speaker cable lengths as a problem."

Is the cable inwall rated?
"This Speaker Cable is designed for typical home theatre application and not specifically for use in walls, however the cable does feature an extra thick external PVC jacket for added protection.
With that said, many people do use this cable for in wall installations as the high purity OFC speaker cable is well protected and designed to last for many years - plus it is backed by our 5 year replacement warranty!"
