Working on setting up my 2ch (but likely to be 2.1ch) music area - have most of it on its way, but I just wanted some advice on some cables. I have speaker wire to make my own cables for that, but I'm needing to get a subwoofer cable and a digital coax to connect the CD player to my amplifier. I'm just not sure whether it's better to spend a bit of money on those cables or just get ones that are fairly inexpensive. I do not want to spend hundreds of dollars on cables, though, so "a bit of money" would probably be somewhere in the $50-60 CAD range as a max. The digital coax, I would like to keep to under 3' in length if possible, and the subwoofer cable would probably not need to be any longer than 6'. Both cables single male to male, but there's a chance that the subwoofer I end up choosing will have the regular RCA input, so a Y cable for that wouldn't be off the table.
I know this shouldn't be a difficult decision, but I also don't want to end up with a garbage cable or ripped off, either.
