I was in a Guitar Center store last weekend and was amazed to find that decent guality instrument cables are very inexpensive when compared to HT/AV cables. They have an amazing assortment of adapters, as well as a wide variety of cables with different connectors. They have RCA to bananna, RCA to any size phono plug you can imagine, and even XLR (think standard, industrial microphone connectors - big) to RCA cables. Most of them were very flexible, and had what appeared to be quality connectors. The salesman assured me that they were all very well shielded as well. Speaking of which, all of the sales people were extremely helpful, knowledgeable, and friendly. I'm still a little shell shocked over that. Sorry to ramble, but I just wanted to pass this along in case anyone has a GC or other pro music store in their area.

Why isn't this discussed more in the forums? If these cables are good enough to produce what we listen to, why wouldn't they be good enough to use to reproduce it? They certainly are cheaper.

'Cause no one ever thinks of going in Guitar Center more than is absolutely necessary?

Last time I was in one they kicked me out for picking up a guitar and starting to play Stairway to Heaven...
