I recommend thinner wire. I'm using 2 twisted- wire wrap wire that's 30 gauge for inputs.

You mean the sound could get stuck in the wire?

The signal wiring needs to be thick enough to allow the electrons to bounce around.
That gives the euphonic effect so liked by the tube/valve Members.

Imagine the sound signal is a human. And the cable is a pipe tunnel. It is okay if the signal has limited bass content. What if there is plenty of bass content? Its like a very fat man going through a tunnel. Some part of his body might be distorted.

Default AWG Wire Sizes

Years ago, when I tuned my DIY f-4 monoblocks, Mr. Peter Daniel send me the following link: American Wire Gauge table and AWG Electrical Current Load Limits with skin depth frequencies
According this hint I used single pairs of thin wires taken from LAN Class-5 cable for monoblocks inputs.
My supply and speakers wires are thicker.

Maybe

I would have thought the wire need to be thin enough for the signal not to be trapped into the wires



Best,

amusing and yet accurate analogy.
The sort of thing pupils might remember for the rest of their lives.
Thanks for the smile.
