    I am thinking of getting a Denon 1803 Amp to connect to my Toshiba 220e but am not sure of which interconnecting cables I need. I have already invested in some QED Silver anniversary and Miro cables for my new Kef 2005.2 speakers so preferably would like something that would really get the most out of the cables I already have.

    Any help much appreciated.

    Cheers

    Jonno

    You'd need to buy a Digital Coaxial or Optical cable - preferably one of reasonable quality.

    Most eletrical retailers will be able to sell you one of sufficient quality.

    This cable will run from the digital output at the back of your Toshiba DVD player to the corresponding input on the back of the AVR1803 amp.

    I can't imagine you'll need to spend more than £20-30 on a cable.

    i have those 3 items, 1803,tosh220 and kef mk2 eggs
    tosh is connected via optical to 1803 and using Svideo for picture, plan is to run componant to the 1803 and then out to the projector. But for you it depends on what your outputing to. If a TV then use the sfid, if plasma/pj use componant. your choice.

    I have the same setup too, and I went with a 1m Scorpion coaxial cable.

    Just wondering what you thought of the Scorpion in your setup. Do you have any other standard phono cables to compare with?

    No I haven't. I picked all elements of my kit from recommendations from users on this and other sites. People seemed to be impressed with the Scorpion cables so I opted for them, both to connect the DVD to the amp, and the amp to the sub. The customer service is fantastic also.

    I'll go along with the recommendations for Scorpion cables. I've got coax, sub & component cables.
    Great quality cables at realistic prices. www.scorpioncables.com

    Whether you would notice the difference between a 50p phono cable and an expensive one for digital coax is debatable on some systems. I know that on some higher end stuff people have experienced a definite increase in performance with the better quality ones. Just interested to see if people could hear an obvious improvement over a cheap cable in a system such as that mentioned above.
    BTW i am referring to the Denon 1803/Tosh/KEF setup.
