    Default What interconnects for HT and 2 ch would sound good

    I wonder if anyone has a suggestion for some rca's I could use for HT but also be used for 2 channel until I get money for a really nice pair .The rca's will be going to the amp from the processor

    Signal Cable Analog 2's. He sells a Home theater pack with 5, 6, 7 or 8 cable configurations. They are cheaper than buying multiple sets of the Analog 2 stereo pairs. They are what I am rocking right now. You also get a Club Polk discount

    Otherwise I have heard good things about the Audioquest line (Sidewinder, Cooperhead) stuff.

    Really, after all the cable threads asking the exact same question, now the question again???? Really, I mean really?????

    PFB, you've been around here enought to know the answer. Damn, this place it like a broken record sometimes. Stop the insanity!!

    Signal Cable
    Monoprice
    Entry level Audioquest.

    It doesn't matter; and what kind of time line before you get a "really nice" pair.....whatever that means. What is a really nice pair to you? What's your budget?

    This place drives me batty sometimes.

    We can't tell you what would sound good in your room,on your gear, with your ears. All we can do is suggest what others here use and have had good results with. The signal cables are good,the analog2's, and might I also suggest if you go on Audiogon.com and bid on a pair of Audio Metallurgy GA 0's, great bang for your buck cable. Think right now they are about 40 bucks and they will give you the option to buy as many as you want at the winning price.

    Thats good to know about the signal cable coming in packs for HT and the CP discount ..... thanks for that reply EndersShadow

    Heiney I already have the monoprice crap and dont care for them .I know alot about speaker cables from reading here buy never really paid much attention to interconnects because I have never needed any till now

    If it helps I am running Martin Logans with mit wire running from an anthem avm pre connected to an emotiva amp

    I was just looking at the cheap ic's on the signal cable site and have a few thoughts .Would the Silver Res Silver Bullet ic be a good choice ? Whats the diff between copper and silver bullets appart from one kills werewolfs and the other does not ?

    I switched from Blue Jeans to Kimber for all my cables.

    I have used Kimber on my speakers for a good 15 years and there interconnects for about 3-5 years. They sound awesome.

    I use PBJ for everything but the sub that gets a Cadence, and 8TC for speakers.

    if your on a budget, get the monoprice ones.

    they were great for me til i went to AQ sidewinders then to King cobras.

    have yet to try Signal Cable, but i think im gonna give them a shot here soon.

    Silver cables tend to be bright. If you are running Emo gear, I'd stay far away from anything having any silver content as Emo is bright already.

    Second that. I've even found hybrids to have a bright flavor and something lacking in the lower end. YMMV...

    My speakers are in the same family as yours and I'd be very leery of silver cables. I did a short review of silver wires with the ML line herehttp://www.polkaudio.com/forums/show...es-from-Signal. You can't beat the deal if you don't care for them and if you like them, your a bit ahead of the mono's from what I've read.

    You could just deal with the cheap ones you got now and get the good ones later. Instead of spending money in babysteps and costing more in the long run.

    Yep that is why I got the Black Mamba II's and Audio Quest Type 8 speaker cables for my 3 channel amp. I dont plan on going any further.
