Critique my new vinyl setup

Well i'm almost ready to take the plunge, here's what I've pretty much decided on.

Marantz PM5004

PSB B25 Bookshelf Speakers

Pro-ject Debut iii table

As for cabling, what are some general recommendations? The way my room is set up, the only good place to put the table + amp will be opposite from the speakers, meaning each cable will need to be 10+ feet long. Will this affect sound quality significantly?

Cables and speaker wire

can be controversial. For that system good quality interconnects and speaker wire don't have to be expensive. Monoprice and other sub $10 cables are just fine and here follows a treatise on speaker wire. http://www.roger-russell.com/wire/wire.htm
I can't tell the difference between under $10 Steren 254 series (254-215BL 6 foot stereo RCA cable) cable and those which cost 20 times as much. Similar features/construction and flexible is sufficient.

Your vinyl setup will sound just fine. Good job!
