Labgear Flat Speaker Cable 2-Core x 152 Strand 100m White
Outstanding value for money
7 May 2015
The speaker cable is actually 2 x 76 strand, not the 152 in each as stated.
The cable is a reasonable upgrade on the standard cables provided with home cinema systems.
Be aware that this cable is quite wide and might not fit through some cable tidy systems on lifestyle speaker stands.
You can't really go wrong for the price but if you are planning on using this as an upgrade for a one box home cinema system with lifestyle speakers then you may be better off going with the standard cable rather than flat.

This is good stuff ...
This speaker cable has 2 conductors, each I reckon about 1.3 sq.mm. Overall outside dimensions are about 11mm wide by about 2mm thick. So it's clearly not designed for the main speakers on a hi-fi system. But I have used it for the rear speakers in a surround sound system, running lengths up to 12m, in a room full of other wires and cables, and it works very well. No noise at all. And completely undetectable under carpet. But no speaker cable is "shielded", so if the previous reviewer was picking up noise, then the problem was probably elsewhere, not with this cable. Also, I would have thought that, if there was any noise at all, it would be mains hum, not "hiss". In any event, it works fine for me in several situations, and there are no problems. And it's half the price of an equivalent flat cable elsewhere!

Could be better
Tried using this for my home surround system. it is poorly shielded and picked up a load of "hiss" from somewhere. I have since changed the cable and the problem has gone away.
If you don't have a lot of EMF in the room or are using short lengths then this cable would be ideal. I just can't see where that situation would arrive.
