    I've currently got an Onkyo tx-sr605 receiver, Samsung LE46F86BD LCD TV, PS3 and have just ordered some Kef KHT 5005.2W speakers. I want to make the most out of my kit with quality cables so please can anyone recommend what cables I should be using and the best places to get good deals on them?

    Hi Ben,

    I've currently got an eltax 5.1 system that I've had for at least 7 years now, and it's using the cheapest wire cable that RicherSounds provided me with at the time.
    pretty sorry state really, but I've been building up my kit and the new Kef speakers absolutely need a cable upgrade.

    HDMI Cables: UKHDMI.com
    Speaker Cable: Van Damme Blue 2.5mm (Fisual Pro 2.5mm would probably be just as good)
    Other cables: Powerbuy forums / eBay.

    That's great, thanks, The obvious buy is QED Silver Anniversary for the speakers so great to get alternatives to look into, I've heard that QED have also brought out a good HDMI cable for the PS3, but I'll check out the sites you've mentioned.
