About to get the Emotiva Ultra Theater Combo and need to decide on the cables to connect the amp and pre pro.


Currently I am looking at the following 3 options:


PREMIUM 2 RCA Plug/2 RCA Plug M/M 22AWG Cable - 3ft

High-quality Digital Coaxial Audio RCA Cable M/M RG6U 75ohm Gold connector S/PDIF Subwoofer
http://www.monoprice.com/products/pr...ormat=2&style=


PCAs from Outlaw
http://www.outlawaudio.com/products/cab_pca_about.html


Will the first 2 options even work?


What are most people typically using here to connect their pre/pro and amp?

Any of those would work, though I don't know how well a coax digital cable would work as an interconnect for your pre/pro, but it would probably be fine. I don't think I'd spend the money on the outlaw cables though. As long as your interconnects are properly shielded, you should be OK. It's not necessary to spend hundreds on cables or speaker wire for that matter.

I'm actually wondering what is the difference between

regular RCA interconnect cable

Subwoofer cable

video composite cable

digital spdif coaxial cable

Component cable


The regular cheap rca interconnects that are usually thrown in can be used as a component cable. My dish installer hooked up the receiver with a regular rca cable to my plasma and it worked fine.

Hmm, didn't even know Outlaw sold cables... anyway the cheap cables from monoprice should be fine. I'm actually using that middle link one for my sub cable and my components cost a lot more than the cheap Emo pair.

No differences.

All specified as 75ohm and functionally equivalent.


All the above will work as analog audio interconnects.
