I am a retired union electrician and have dealt with all kinds over the years. Myself I am using 10awg 250 strand only because I got alot of it on a studio tearout for free. If people ask I say just get a roll of 14 awg. lamp cord. I have a set of bi wire able RTR but think it is just a way to sell more wire or amps under most conditions because you double your wire load and both carry the same signal anyway. What do you think?

The huckster links to slick web designed snake oil sales, and audio publications and their associated "expert" reviewer's. All part of the audio world sub culture tapping into the notion of fools and their money are soon departed trade. You'd be just as successful arguing politics and religion as you would be challenging these beliefs to them.
