While some speaker wire may sound slightly better with some audio systems, that’s a needle-in-a-haystack search that’s simply not worth it for most people. For most of us, the Monoprice 2747 12-gauge is a great deal on a sturdy and widely available cable. In our test setup, it sounded fuller and richer than many of its competitors, especially those with thinner gauges. However, our tests also showed that there isn’t a single best speaker cable for every system, and that instead the best-sounding cable depends heavily on the other components of your system.
