    £2500 Monitor Audio Gold speaker
    £500 Denon amp
    £1000 Sony RPTV

    How much should I spend on speaker cables and interconnects, and which ones are thought of as the best? I'm thinking QED.

    Hi Colin,
    There isn't a real set price. Dealers will tell you 10% of your total budget. As for the best, well that's down to opinion and your own ear. Personally I like Atlas and Kimber interconnects. They aren't cheap but they do the job very well. As for speaker cable there are a lot of threads on this forum about standard twin and earth electrical cable. This is a good cheap option.
    If you don't mind a spot of DIY then CAT5 network cable is a good way to go. Slightly dearer but with greatly improved sonics. Again it's only my opinion but I doubt you'll be able to buy better for less than £50 per metre.

    My standpoint is if it dosnt measure better then it isnt better. Read the post by beekeeper, its all you need to know. Cables neednt be expensive to be good :smashin:
