Re: sorry, but yet another cat5 question

How many strands do i really need?

As many as it takes! :-) It really depends on your systems. If your runs are short, 9 pairs should be enough. If you have longer runs and/or high power amps w/low impedance speakers, then you'll need more. Just keep gauging up until you are satisfied.

Good luck.
