    does cable really make much difference to the sound output of a system, when using it at normal levels. as i would like to know if its worth spending lots of money on cable costing upwards of £.69pm.

    There's loads of arguments on this around here. In my opinion it boils down to that there's cable that's right for the job (which doesn't have to be expensive) and cable that's bad in various ways. There can be audible differences between some cables but only when at least one of them has been badl designed.

    It's certainly not worth spending a great deal of money on individual cables. Mark Grant in the power buys sells excellent cables at reasonable prices and it's also worth investing in decent scart leads (such as the Philex Home Cinema at about £7 or the Philex Thor at about £20). For audio leads I'd also advocate making them yourself, check mylo's "homebrew leads" thread in the DIY section. :)
