    Several good rca for schiit stacks I've heard of includes the schiit pyst cables, monoprice cables, and the intropose rigid cross connect which I use personally.
    The monoprice are a good bargain but I like the intropose because it looks nice. GL :)

    Any RCA cable will be just fine. Even if youre a believer in expensive cables which i am not a system at this price will be perfectly fine with an amazon basics cable or monoprice cable. If you want to spend about $20 schiit sells PYST cables and those are what i use for the convience and cleaner look while stacking.

    Have you seen this? https://introprose.myshopify.com/products/rca-crossconnect-for-schiit-stack
    I haven't tried it myself yet, but seems a nice solution.

    Unless you have a specific problem like the cables being too long to manage or they have a flakey connection, I would just use what you got. Spend the money on music or use it towards another pair of headphones.

    I've been using the Schiit PYST RCA cables for several years and have no complaints.

    If you carefully read schiit.com's own description of their PYST cables you'll see at the very end that if you don't want to spend $20 on PYST they recommend using Monoprice cables which is what I did.

    If you are stacking them (Vali on top of Modi) then the Schiit RCA cables are great because they are short and of good quality.

    I just ordered the PYST 6 inch cables for my sons setup.
    $7.88 in shipping, so a little pricey if not combining with another order.

    I have also used these from Amazon
    0.5 Foot – Directional Quad High-Definition Audio Interconnect Cable Pair CUSTOM MADE By WORLDS BEST CABLES – using Mogami 2534 wire and Neutrik-Rean NYS Gold RCA Connectors

    It seems hard to find affordable 0.5 foot cables.

    I've ordered Kenable cables before and while they are slow to ship to the US, the quality is fine. Just pull off the third cable: https://www.amazon.com/Kenable-Component-Video-Phonos-Phono/dp/B008LBF6SQ

    EDIT: Actually, those aren't shielded so probably not a good option. They make a 10 inch shielded RCA cable though.

    I have Pyst connecting SYS, Vali 2, and Modi Uber. No complaints.

    Welcome to the forum @boxster233 !
    I'm getting excellent results with a short (~1ft?) RCA cable from Monoprice... or Amazon Basics. The short cables can be GENTLY bent to make it all fit. I even used some Y-splitters to feed my Magni & Vali off the same Loki. As long as the connections are firmly pushed into the RCA sockets, it has crystal clear output.

    ........I took as I assembled my listening nook... to give you some ideas, eh.....
    The Schiit Modi manual I have assures me that the signal between its DAC and the amplifier is strong enough to give optimal results.

    Thanks everyone for great feedback on cables. I’m going to try 6922 tube and see if that reduces noise, then try to reevaluate if I went to invest in cables.

    Installed Pyst cables in my son's Modi -> Vali setup. They look and work great.

    The Monoprice seem to stiff.
    I used some no-name super cheap (but not stiff) cables for my other sons Modi -> Magni setup.
