I have an opportunity to buy a quantity of Litz wire from a company going out of business. It is 16 gauge with a silicone jacket. Normally I would not be interested but I happen to be helping a friend with a home-theater installation and he is in the market for speaker wire. I can get the Litz wire for much less than any regular wire I would normally use for speakers, so I'm wondering if there are any issues I'm not aware of that would rule out the Litz. BTW, I have access to (and experience with) a hi-temp solder pot to treat the ends, so that is not a problem.
