Proper gauge wire for system.

I'm having an electrician install an upgraded circuit panel and a dedicated line for my audio system. The panel will be about 35-40' from where the 20 amp outlet will be.
My question is what gauge wire should I have him put in? I've heard 12AWG should work, but was told by someone else I should use 10AWG for this distance.
Which would be the correct gauge to use? Thanks.
