I've read stuff here and there that there is no audible difference between 16 awg and 12 awg, I'm just trying to save money on new build so I was going to just go with spool of 100ft karma SS 16 awg wire for components and coaxials. Should I step up the the 12 awg? Price pretty much doubles:(

OFC is OFC and knukonceptz has good prices shipped to Canada. I need to pickup some flex, terminals, fuse holders etc too and I have nothing but good things to say so far. Thanks for the input 16 AWG it is

You can probally get 12 gauge from Monoprice less for less then that 16 gauge.

If you're going with 16 gauge, buy it at Canadian Tire, it's the cheapest place I found!

They have 2 packages of RCA wire, they look to be the same, just that one is more expensive than the other.

I ran 16 awg twisted Monster throughout and really liked it.
