I recently upgraded my speaker wire. I didn't have a lot of $$ to toss around, and had read on the forum that people were satisfied with the Home Depot 12 ga wire for basic systems. While I am pleased with the performance improvement I got from the wire, I found it to be very rigid and inflexible and hard to work with. The wires tend to arc out about 4-6 inches from the back of the speaker as they drape towards the floor. This tends to make the pin connectors I am using want to pop out of the back of the speaker, and since I only have spring clips on my speakers, I can't really do anything more to secure them. I was in radio shack the other day, and was looking at their 12 gauge wire. It seemed to be much more flexible, with more strands and "oxygen free" which I understand is a bonus. Is it worth the upgrade to the more expensive rat-shack(or comparable) wire?
