    Here's another question about setting up an HT: Since I'll be building my HT from the studs, is it advisable to run permanent speaker wires through the walls, with connector jacks behind the amp and at the speaker locations? This way, you could use high quality connectors (female banana jacks) at each end of the in-wall wire, then connect the amp and speakers to these jacks with male bananas. Would this compromise the signal quality versus using continuous wire from amp to speaker?
    It seems that this would ease the "hiding-the-wires" task we all struggle with.
    Cheers,
    Chris

    Is there any reason you need to terminate the wires at the wall? If not then I'd run continuous wires from amp to speaker. Depending on your equipment and hearing sensitivity you may or may not notice a difference in quality. However, the fewer terminations you have, the less probability of having loose connections.
