In a HT set-up, I've heard the speaker cables to the mains and center should idealy be the same length but I've also heard it really doesn't make much difference. Is this a critical issue or if the amp is 4 feet from the left front, 9 feet from the center and 14 feet from the right front, is it ok to have the cables appoximate the length to the speakers? If equal is critical, then it will be necessary to coil up about 10 ft. of fairly expensive cable between the amp and the left front speaker. Is there a REAL time factor delay in the signal if the cables are different lengths?
This thread over at HTF seems to indicate it is NOT necessary for equal lengths...
...however any opinions here are welcome or any actual test data available would be nice too.
