    Default Simple 2 Channel SACD question...

    I know that there are suppose to be 6 cables going from player to receiver...but if I listen to 2 channel and can't quite afford nice cables for all of the interconnects, would it be ok to use a "nicer" quality cable for the FL and FR? and maybe a decent one for the sub? Or should I hook up all of them but use cheap ones for the surrounds and center? I have never really listened to SACD and just borrowed IC and SACD a few days ago and returned it yesterday, but forgot to test the configuration.


    thanks,

    Well problem solved...now time to choose a cable!

    Hah demo thing takes forever for the signal cable interconnects....might go with blue jeans or something...but rather not go into cable vs cable thread...

    Well, don't let it get you down, any well constructed, well terminated cable with a decent reputation will serve you. Play with cable swapping later.

    I'll go back to my audio store and see if there are some used ones...He actually tries out all of his products before coming a dealer...so there are all of these cables he tries but doesn't think they are good enough for his customers so he doesn't carry them. He carries all paradigm products and jmlab and bohlender goblander? something long like that.
