First off about RC, AV cables. Sam's Club has some Phillips cables very nice, low cost. Radio shack house brand is good.
Or for www.partsexpress.com www.fullcompass.com
All of the above are companies that I have uesd.
For speaker cable, 16 lamp cord will work great.
Home Depot has some nice RCA brand speaker wire in 16 and 14 ga.
For in the wall wire you should use plenum grade,
If you DON'T USE Mon$tor cable you can spend the money you save on better speakers and you WILL hear the difference. John
I am having a house built and will be pre-wiring it for surround sound. I have done some price shopping for cables such as component, S-Video, HDMI, RCA & Subwoofer cables and want to know what you would recommend.
I have used and enjoy the Monster brand, however they are quite expensive and can run me almost $600 to do just one room. I have seen the Dayton Audio brand as well which is a bit cheaper, but am not sure if they are as good comparably speaking. Or is there another brand that is really good for in-wall wiring as it'll be in the walls for as long as the house is standing, well hopefully.
