Thanks for the recommendation...when you say pricey how pricey are we talking? I couldn't even find info on a local dealer.


I'm not trying to break the bank on these and will probably order something economical from Blue Jeans to use in the meantime.

I'll be using rca's for now. Down the road when i shell out some real $$ on an amp I'll go the xlr route. The pre/pro i'm getting has xlr inputs but not the amp i'm getting.


$500 for cabling is way to expensive for me right now, though Chord looks like a great product. I did look at their site before, and it looks like I'll have to contact their US distributor to find a local dealer.

How long do the interconnects need to be?

If they're ony, say, 3 to 5 feet or less, I would expect to find good stereo pair cables for not much more than about 10 dollars (USD) each.

6' triple shielded with plastic-braided metal-teflon over copper wire, silver solder with 24k gold plated terminations, tension relieving springs at ends, $12/pair at the Home Depot TV section a few years ago, wonderful results.


As an added bonus, i soldered a third lead to the braided metal shielding and connected

it to the power conditioner's grounding terminal, poor man's balanced cables.


Call me a peasant but they do a wonderful job.

I'm a big fan of Audioquest cables. My entire HT has Audioquest throughout. I know their out of your price range but I use AQ Columbia (XLR) from my processor to amp. I'd recommend King Cobras or Diamondbacks for your set up.

I use monster ultra 600 cables on my $20,000+ B&W/Anthem system with excellent results. You can find these cheap on ebay. I compared them to some MIT cables in the $2000-$5000 price range and couldn't really tell a substantial difference, not enough to justify that kind of money on cables.
