Looked all over for threads on cables but could not find one so I landed here to try and get my question answered hopefully.


I need a recommendation (brand and model number/name) on a good pair of interconnect cables to hook up to my CD player for 2 channel analog listening to music. Don't want to break the bank on price but surely I can find something really good for hopefully around $100 bucks or so, I would even buy used, no problem. Your help and recommendation would be greatly appreciated, thank you very much.

A stereo RCA pair (3-6ft) will run you about 10-20.00. Any more and you are throwing away money. Don't get suckered in my the high dollar silliness. It has zero basis in fact. This is a very thread on this site.

Emotiva is having a cable sale, 25% off -- www.emotiva.com

etc.


There are several threads on cables, and zillions of other threads that include various cable debates. IMO (like The Giz) there's no need to spend a fortune, just find a decent set and go for it. Do NOT buy the small, thin, cheap Philips cables from Wal-Mart, however... I have bought several in a pinch and regretted it. Very poor construction and QC.


All imo - Don
