I need 3 6ft HDMI cables & 1 12ft HDMI cable and was told to go with 24AWG but I was reading that 24AWG for 6ft & 12ft application is too thick and may be hard to bend and could pop out or break HDMI ports is that true, also I read with that short of distances you can't tell between 28 & 24, also true or not?


Here Is what I was looking at

http://www.monoprice.com/products/pr...seq=1&format=2 24AWG

http://www.monoprice.com/products/pr...seq=1&format=2 28AWG with Ferrite Cores

http://www.bluejeanscable.com/store/...bles/index.htm BJC Series-2 24AWG or Tartan 28AWG


I all so need 24 Banana Plugs and was looking at these two sets on eBay what do you guys think, the Nakamichi looks like a great deal & I'm no expert with speaker wire so I want the easiest ones that are quality?


Here are the Item numbers if the eBay links don't work 180363581749 & 350154366730

http://cgi.ebay.com/28-Nakamichi-Spe...d=p3286.c0.m14


Last but not least I was looking for a high quality wire stripper and came across these but which model number would I need for Belden 5000UE 12AWG wire because there are three models for 3 different strip sizes for 12AWG & if you know of a better one let me know?

I have the 28 gage Monoprice HDMI cables in 3 and 9 ft lengths. They're fine, I haven't had a problem.


As far as the banana plugs. I use the screw type, with one screw clamping down on the wire and the other on the insulation. Ebay is blocked for me at work so I can't see what you're looking at but I have gotten banana plugs from these guys . These also have insulation on the exposed parts, instead of other brands all metal construction.


For a wire striper I bought a DataShark model. I found it at a Menards. Lowes may also carry them.
