    hi,
    I'm just about to buy some 3.5mm mini jack to 2xRCA cable to connect my portable music sources (laptop, mp3 player) to my home stereo but... After reading some other post and text abut interconnects cables and cables in general I'm a little bit confuse. So much that I can't decide wich cable to choos. I just don't know if there will be some difference to feel or not. The prices are from 1 euro to 80 euro so it's getting harder.
    There are some cables that I'm thinking of:
    1.IXOS 109
    2.MONSTER iCABLE
    3.Interlink Portable 400 MkII
    4.CHOSEAL
    5.QED Qunex J2P
    6.iCHORD

    well I hope that somebody is also interested in that subject and know more then I do.

    I suppose part of the answer is a question,what quality are the recordings?If they're low quality mp3's then I'd buy a £1 lead off fleabay.If they're high quality then I'd still start with a cheap lead and see what it sounded like as the electronics in portable players are not top quality in my personal experience(mine's a creative zen touch),fine for headphones on the move but not when connected to a decent system

    Wot he said!

    If you are using lossy encoding, a cheap cable will do. You may as well burn a few £20 notes on the BBQ vs buying an expensive cable. :)

    I've got a 30gb ipod, and all of the tracks are encoded to mp3 at a pretty low bitrate (between 128kb & 192kb). So I'm guessing you'd recommend a relatively cheap cable, I'm after specific suggestions, please.

    What I'm after is a 3.5mm minijack to 3.5mm minijack

    Thanks
