    Wiring Labels

    What do you use to label wires when wiring a home. It seems like we spend hours toning out wires because they are not labeled. I was thinking of a label maker but it seems like it would take a long time. Looking for a room by room tag solution.

    Interesting question. I too have had to try multiple times, to find the correct cable.

    I have a similar one from Brother and it works fine. Don't use masking tape like I did for years, it's awful.

    When I bought my current AVR (Marantz SR6007) I discovered that Marantz strictly controls retail pricing for new equipment. Although the SR6007 retail price was the same everywhere, Crutchfield's offer included free shipping and a very extensive and professional set of self-adhesive wiring labels, free of charge. As I was in the process of a HT renovation project, I couldn't pass up the wiring label sweetener. Just guessing but, for a nominal charge, you can probably buy a wiring label kit from Crutchfield, even if you are not in the market for new hardware.
