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.
