I am looking for a good quality XLR cable at a reasonable price but the range is just rediculous. Outlaw has a .5 meter cable for $13. Emotiva has one for $30 or out on Amazon they are $370 for sterling sliver.
I am concerned at something price at $13. On the other hand, I have talked to an audio pro who has literally built a recording studio and he said the spec was copper, not silver and he sees no benefit in silver.
My gut tells me the Emotiva cables are the way to go. At $30 they seems like a good value but I am nut sure if 20 strands of copper is enough. I found another cable for $70 that has 42 strands of copper. My problem is I assume more is better but honestly haven't the vaguest idea of what is adequate, exceptional and what is overkill
Any clarity would be enormously helpful as this is such an important and expesive part of the system. I am already projected to spend $11,000 on this system and am significanlty over my original $9000 budget including the TV. I don't want to cheap out on these cables but I also can't spend $2100 for wires.
