I'm looking to add a external amp to my system. Can I use just any RCA cable to connect my receiver to amp? or should I look for something special?

* Sorry if this is the wrong forum, just looking for advice on what cables to buy.

Thanks for any help. Not sure if it matters but I have a Denon 3313ci and am looking to get a Emotiva 3/5 channel amp.

Pretty much any set of RCA cables will do, but if you want to splurge, these cables from Monoprice.com will work very well. smile.gif

$3 bucks a cable, not bad.

Thanks for the reply. So basically any RCA will work? I have some extra RCA subwoofer cables, would those work?

Is there a big difference between these? At $13 bucks each they don't seem like a bad deal. I've been reading on how some lower quality cables fail and to spend a few dollars more on some decent quality cables.

Is there much difference between the two Emo ones? If any difference at all.
