Interconnects, speaker wire, power cords. Ask the Cable Guys.

RE: Two comments

For line-level interconnects, there are many cables I would choose over the V-Twist. Just from ones I have owned or used extensively, these would include Wireworld Eclipse (all versions), Wireworld Polaris 5, and Discovery Essence and Plus 4. On a more expensive level, I like Audio Note AN-Vx and Ocellia Silver Reference. And on a very cheap DIY level, the Belden 8402 wire is certainly a decent sounding cable.

For phono wiring such as tonearms, I like 1877 Phono (sold by Parts Connexion) and Discovery Plus 4. For several years, I used some twisted 22g stranded copper wires (sold by Cary Audio) as the hard-wired connections between an outboard SUT and my phono preamp, and they sounded really good. I ended up replacing them with a hard-wired section of Discovery Essence which sounded even better, but not dramatically so. The Cary wires were unshielded and had no hum problems.
