I recently bought new speakers, speaker wire and banana plugs. I was using wire strippers to cut the wire. I was tearing the clear jacket off with the strippers, not realizing I could just pull it off with my fingers after i cut the jacket lol (found this out testing on spare wire I had when the job was done). As I was tearing off the clear jacket I was bringing copper strands along with it, and fraying some of the remaining. I am considering going back to re do it, but it is a bit off a hassle to get to the back of the receiver. I am getting sound out of all the speakers. I guess my question is I don't know if having more strands would make any improvement in sound quality, or is it an if it works, it works scenario? Thanks.
