that very simple really

if flexible wire is needed, use stranded wire
or else use solid core
thick wire when really needed
or else use something less

just dont use wire that will put stress on the connection

any kind of copper wire will do

This site is good for wire and accessories. I used 16g for power connections and 2 conductor shielded for signal. Both silver plated Teflon.

Excellent! got some good stuff now, i think it does matter to some degree which wire, that's answered it.

how about transformers and Shielding, i Personaly think its not too important to Shield in the F5 since its low noise anyway. and the transformer may be sitting away from the PCB's anyway. does it realy matter having unshielded transformers ?
