This might seem obvious, however that initial decision about what kind of wire to use dictates whether the job goes smoothly and effortlessly, resulting in neat and tidy wiring you’ll be proud of, or making a complete pig’s ear of your Echorec. Firstly, make sure to use reasonably thin gauge multi-strand single core wire. I recommend 16 × 0.2mm with external diameter of 1.6mm and PVC jacket. You’ll require two meters (2m) of each of the following colours: red, black, white, yellow, brown, orange, green. Thicker wire than this is not recommended as it will put undue stress on fragile metal parts such as solder tabs on tube sockets, transformers and the solder tags on Binson’s proprietary circuit boards which are remarkably fragile and brittle and inclined to snap off with even the slightest amount of bending. Additionally, thicker gauge wire is more difficult to route and you’ll more than likely find yourself battling with it to keep it sitting nicely in position.
