Hi all, I have a question. I just purchased an Onkyo HT-S770 and as those of you that are familiar with the system may know it comes with very tiny speaker wires. I looked purchasing some 16ga speaker wire but decided against it for several reasons. I have several 1000' rolls of 16ga power wire left over from my car stereo shop. I thought about using it and twisting up my own speaker wire pairs. The only thing is that after I cut off a piece I noticed that the wire is not as bright as it once was. Apparently it has started to oxidize. Its not bad, but it leaves me wondering if I should even bother. I thought maybe I could deoxidize the ends and solder the tips, but I cant think of the best way to do this. I would appreciate any thoughts any of you may have on this....
