GUEST,Ray Tech: Speakers and speaker wire (43) RE: Tech: Speakers and speaker wire 06 Dec 19

This issue was discussed at some length several decades ago in a Studio Sound article by, I think, Hugh Ford. Hugh was a renowned nit-picker and, if there was something to be found, you could guarantee that he would find it; I remember one article on a new tape machine where his only criticism was that the colour of the VU meters wasn’t quite to the appropriate british standard, but I digress.

His article on speaker leads looked at the fad of the hi-fi community spending great amounts on speaker leads and he explained the problem mathematically which, in all honesty, went entirely over my head. His conclusion though was both interesting and memorable. He agreed that the gauge and material of the leads did make a difference but you were unlikely to hear any difference providing you kept the leads shorter than a quarter of a mile in length.
