My two cents:
Wire is audible. As a decent compromise, order Kimber Kable 19 gauge hook-up wire, teflon insulated TCSS ( as I recall ). It is Litz and has nine multi-sized strands in a single outer wrapping...... use as follows,
Signal wire, one strand,
B+ wire, two twisted,
Grounds ...three twisted.
Lotsa color choices and its all easily acquired, not too expensive, from Mike Percy.
Others will have other wire favorites, but this isn't too bad a suggestion in my opinion. I'd also use Wonder Solder, but ONLY in a OPEN, well-aired-out work place. Star grounding you mentioned is good practice.
wahat is the B+ wire? I don't have much knowledge on this you know.
That is wire that carries the B+
or the positive high voltage supply.
I would use triple wire for B+ and ground
since they are the source and
the return of the same voltage.
JMHO of course 8^D
I'll second Jeff's recommendation. I've been using Kimber TCSS and wonder solder for several years. Easy to use and solder.
