The best way to find the right cable for you is to test on your own.
Grab some standard 14 gauge speaker wire with oxygen free copper and borrow a few expensive cables and have a listen.
Best to do this unbiased. For example, a friend of yours switches the cables and you do not know which one you are listening to.
If you can hear a difference that’s ok, pick the one which sounds the best.
If they sound identical pick the cheap one and save money.
One more point aside from sound is aesthetics. You will find that more expensive speaker wire will look much better and can have banana plugs already attached.
So, you may choose a more expensive cable just for aesthetics and ease of use, even when it sounds identical to cheaper cable. All a matter of preference.
