post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I need the following cables :

All of them should be between 1.5 to 3 feet and very high quality :

 

1/8 male to 1/8 male cable

1/8 male to RCA male cable

optical cable

 

I also need an adapter :

 

High-Quality 1/8 female to 1/4 male...

 

 

I already have these...but they are not high quality...I want high quality cables...would appreciate it if you provide a link to each product that you think is good...

 

 

thanks

Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't all optical cables the same, like with USB A to USB B cables? It's digital... high end optical cables are a scam imo. 

 

Not the same for analog cables, like RCA, 3.5mm, etc. They actually matter.

 

Audioquest makes some of the best cables on the market, from $40 to $2k. I have an Audioquest $800 CV8 cable connected to my main eletrostatic MartinLogan floor speakers. 

 

There is a margin of diminishing returns of course, like with everything audio related. Moving from $100 to $200 is a much bigger difference than moving from $800 to $1000.

I don't know about optical cables....

 

I am going for the Evergreens ... they work for me both price-wise and quality-wise....

Those are so common... anything would do as long as its not from radioshack or china or some crap like that.
