Jose,

I have an AudioQuest cable and a few inexpensive Cables by Monoprice. I can't hear much of a difference but I haven't done any experimenting with other options. The Monoprice cables are fairly rigid and seem built well despite being a bit less attractive.

While spending more may make an audible difference, I suspect this cable would not make as big a difference as many others. The frequency range carried by the LFE cables is pretty narrow. Let us know what you find in your search, please.

Cheers,

T Cobe

Jose is it? Good question.
T. Cobe is giving you good advice, as he always does.
How long is the cable gonna be?
The reason I ask, IF it is gonna be the same kind of length you might use on another connection in the future, then you might want to spend a little more, get a quality cable that can be used many ways.
IF it is gonna be long, then just a good (decent) quality cable is probably all you will need. The bigger the better, if long.
As T. Cobe points out, this is not an application where the cable needs to be of super quality, especially in the highs (treble) area. BUT I would not get the cheapest either, you may not always get what you pay for, (in audio there is a law of diminishing returns that kicks in pretty durn quickly), but don't cheap yourself out either.
The rule I go with personally, and for a long time, is to get the best that I feel comfortable with.
That will mean a LOT of different things to a lot of people. But IF you go that way, you will always feel at ease with your choices.
Hope this helps.
God Bless, Wayne
God bless the child that's got his own.

Wayne and T Cobe I wasn't going to take long in making a decision with this cable,so after reading what you guys wrote and doing some researching , I decided to purchase the audioquest boxer. I can't wait to hook it up and listen to how it sounds..
