Wire choice

    Hi everybody,
    I have on hand two kinds of stranded wires: one is 96x0.1 and the other 24x0.2. This is the reason of my dumb question: which is better for a psu and the power supply stage of preamplifiers? Is it better a higher number of thinner wires wrapped or it doesn't matter?
    Thanks in advance for the reply,
    Luca

    Power supply?
    Single strand (cable) would be fine, apart from (lack of) convenience of flexibility.

    Go with the most flexible - the most conductors - 96/0.1 - just convenient - should be almost as flexible as string.

    That -96/0.1- is very flexible as much as multimeter probe leads.

    Both being 20 AWG, maybe if one is OFC and the other not?

    Both are 0.75 mm2 but I don't know if OFC. Nothing is printed on the sheat.

    sq225917 Bit of this, bit of that

    It really doesn't matter beyond ease of handling

    I'd use whatever I'd got most of
    ease of handling can be a factor but not on 0.75mm2
