    hi all

    im trying to connect my bang olufsen active speakers to my arcam av8 sound processor using the line out option on the speakers can anybody recommend a type of line level cable i should buy?

    should i just buy single wire shielded cable from an electronics parts supplier. when i asked for this in my local electronics shop i was promptly shown microphone cable, i presume it would be OK because it is properly shielded, but my understanding is that microphone cable usually sounds pretty bad.

    would i be better off getting the cable used for interconnects? i think this is shielded single wire also,if yes can anybody recommend a particular type?

    alternatively could i use subwoofer cable? maybe RG59

    Please help i have my walls all opened up now but plasterers are due back next week :)
