BUYING, SELLING or TRADING indicates your automatic and mandatory acceptance of HiFiVISION.COM Trading Rules and Guidelines!


Do not blindly trust every seller or buyer! Protect yourself by following the below safe trading tips.

Safety Tips

For Buyers

  1. Always meet the seller at a safe location and inspect the item before purchasing. Following this one rule will help you avoid most scams.
  2. Watch out for unrealistic offers. If it appears too good to be true, it probably is. Unrealistic offers are used to motivate purchasers to make hasty decisions.
  3. Always verify the seller's credentials. Ask the seller to provide a photo ID and proof of address.
  4. Ensure that the product you are buying is not stolen or fake. Always ask for a purchase invoice.
  5. The best way to transact is to collect the item and pay at the same time. Never transfer funds or use a debit/credit/atm card to pay someone you do not know before collecting an item.
  6. Ask for clear information on condition of the item, price, payment and delivery method.
  7. Use only those payment methods that you trust and are familiar with. Never give out your financial information.
  8. It is recommended to purchase items directly from the seller.
  9. Always test the functioning of the item before purchase.
  10. Do your research on comparative prices for the product.

For Sellers

  1. Try to take the full payment at the time of the delivery. Remember to use a safe location to meet.
  2. Watch out for fake currency and money orders. Be aware that banks will not honour fake currency/money order and will hold you responsible for it.
  3. Verify the buyer’s credentials if necessary.
  4. Ensure that your product meets the features you list in your ad to avoid any misunderstanding with the buyer.
  5. It is your responsibility to prove that the product you are selling is genuine and not stolen by providing the necessary proof of purchase.
  6. Do not share your financial information except the one required for payment.

Try regular 15A electrical cable from Finolex or like. You could be pleasantly surprised

Finolex 2.5 sq. mm electrical wire is Rs. 1650/- for 90 m spool. So you should get about 45 m of speaker cables. For bananas, look at MX brand; they are quite good and easy to work with.
Cheers,

If buying Finolex electrical wire from a dealer, they are only sold in 90m spools. So be suspicious of fakes if the dealer agrees to sell loose quantity.
If you know a good electrician, they will have leftover wire from their projects. You may even get colors like red/black which can be lightly braided.
Braiding is not compulsory, but it helps in keeping the cable straight. If you want to save money, you may use banana jacks only on AVR and do bare wire on speaker end.
If your max run is less than 30 feet, you can also consider 1.5 sq. mm.
Here is the link
FR PVC Insulated Industrial Cables | Industrial Cables

1.5 sq. mm = 15AWG
2.5 sq. mm = 13AWG

Finolex also makes speaker wire; don't know street pricing though

Check the local market for Chetan cable. It's Indian make and very good for the price. Even Belden comes within your budget.

I need just 20 meter wire around 12awg in bangalore, anyone sells it loose?

Check MX cables in SP Road. You can also contact Mr. Murthy, he can get you inexpensive but good speaker cables.

You get a lot of fake Finolex, please be careful...
