Default Hookup Wire Q

I have a twisted pear revc and joshua tree setup in my case, im wondering what would be the best sort of hookup cable to use between the rca input to joshua tree (about 1 inch) then to the amps (ranges from 1 inch to 4 inches apart) I dont really want to spend that much, and im in Australia so any local help would be appreciated ie where you got your wire etc etc

Would generic hook-up wire be ok? What do ppl usually use?

Matt

Yes good old 0.6mm diameter equipment (hook-up) wire is fine. At those sort of lengths it really doesn't matter.

Australia? Local? Does anybody love 'locally' down there?

Hi,
a twisted pair into the twisted pear seems sensible but in only 25mm you will probably only manage 1.5 twists.
In 100mm you could get 6 to 8 twists.

I saw some cheap "thermostat" solid 18 gauge wire at the Home Depot...would this work for both signal and DC power wires?
