Hey guys, I recently purchased an Onkyo Theatre system. A very decent Onkyo receiver with a set of 7.1 speakers. I am insanely shocked to find 24 gauge wires, some of it being like 50 feet long to the satelites.
i'm not one to bitch about stuff, but this system was NOT cheap. Hell, even cheap ass speakers come with at least 16 gauge. I'm not quite sure what to think of this... is this maybe a tell-tale sign of bad quality? These speakers are being fed over 100 watts each.. how can this thin wire even be safe for the speakers and the Receiver?? We all know that thin wire pushes the components too hard. IF they cheaped out like hell on the wire... what else are they cheaping out on? I almost feel like I should be returning this. Any feedback here would be appreciated.
