So, we're renovating our house, and approaching the stage where wiring needs to be sorted out - including network cabling and av stuff ('stuff' perhaps giving an indication of the extent of my knowledge...).
I was going to go for cat5 purely because it's always been enough - should I be going for cat6?
I had been planning on having cat 5 leading to sockets in every room, upstairs (bedrooms) and down (kitchen, office, lounge, etc) , but am now wondering if I may as well cable every downstairs room and then leave the upstairs to wifi, by having just one run of cat5 up into the loft to link to a repeater - does this seem reasonable?
Av wise I was planning on just having power points and cat5 sockets behind the two places TVs will go - are there any other cables I should be plastering in while I have the chance (for example, would anyone recommend trying to put speaker cable through the wall, given a nice hifi is a few years away?)?
Thanks for your time!
