morning all, I'm wanting to order cable for my new setup. I will have 2 floorstanding speakers,1 centre,1 sub all running off my Yamaha rxv677.
My question is, are the £10m cables better than the £2.50m cables or would I be paying for the name? Same goes to the hdmi cables a shop tried to sell me yesterday at £25m(Cambridge audio)

Thanks

Chris

Speaker cable - quality/purity of the copper and cross section of the conductors is all you need to look out for, the rest is marketing guff. Purchase from a reliable source. Something around £2/m

HDMI - look for the official High Speed logo. A 2m cable ought to be under £10.

Ok thanks I'll bare that in mind, I'm not too bad as it will be all getting run under the floorboards, I've seen the van dame blue stuff but wasn't sure after reading such different reviews.

We've been using the VDC Blue on all of our installs for many years - the neoprene jacket makes it nice and flexible.
