Single Ended Triodes (SETs), the ultimate tube lovers dream.

A lot more involved than wire gauge

Wire gauge affects the sound but it is only one factor. Stranded versus solid. Silver versus copper. Teflon versus PVC versus cotton. All of these are important to sound quality.

The 12g Mil-Spec wire mentioned in this thread is unacceptable to me for full range applications since it rolls off the highs even when used singly.

The best sounding wire I have tried (so far) is Audio Note silver Litz. It seems to combine the best qualities of solid core and stranded wires, and it has excellent bass despite a small effective gauge.
