    Cheap cables

    I am looking at getting cables for my new system. I have been slowing piecing it together. I don’t have a lot of money to spend, and well this is a first time go at the audio thing. Here are the cables I am looking at:

    www.anticables.com – for the speaker wire, the interconnects are a bit much.
    http://www.bluejeanscable.com/store/audio/index.htm - both interconnects and speaker wire.
    http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/showd...number=181-600 – speaker wire.

    Anyone have any ideas or suggestions? I am not all that interested in Cat5e DIY cables…

    spc, any of these should work well.

    For interconnects, I recommend Blue Jeans Cable. I have used both their RCA and balanced cables and found they works as well various other brands costing up to 4x as much.

    I'm very satisfied with cables from River Cable

    http://www.rivercable.com/

    It's worth a look.

    Another recommendation for Blue Jeans Cable. Their HDMI/DVI cable is very well built and does the job exactly as it should. Not only was it the lowest priced cable (of this configuration) that I found, but it was delivered in 3 days. Highly recommended.

    Thanks for your help! I think I will go with blue jeans for now. Once I get everything up and running I may look around.
