Well, I needed 500 feet of wire and they are all hidden, so I bought 3 different kinds of wire. Bluejeans 10 gauge in wall, monoprice 12 gauge in wall, and Axiom bulk 12 gauge. The axiom was $1 a foot, the BJC was $.57 and the monoprice was $.40-$.50(Can't remember). The difference in wire is flexibilty. The axiom cable was outstanding and very easy to bend, cut, and never prick your fingers as it was nice and soft for terminations. The BJC was the opposite, very stiff and always caused my fingers to bleed. The monoprice was in between. I have all 3 wired in my theater and the sound is all the same of course. I would buy based on how easy it is to install terminations. I don't like monoprice bananna plugs at all. The expensive monster and then cheaper acoustic reality work best so far. Axiom's banannas were bad as well. Bad meaning did not fit snug in my equipment. Maybe for different amps or something.
