What cables to use on $1500 setup?

Hey all,

Am looking for advice on what cables to use on my setup which so far is,

1. Project debut carbon, ortofon 2M red TT

2. Music hall 15.2 integrated amp

3. Either Wharfedale Diamond 10.2 or Monitor Bx2 Bronze Speakers.

So my question is what are decent cables to use on this type of setup without breaking the bank?... But will still do it justice. I have heard good things about Blue Jeans cables so was considering these?

Also what cables will i need exactly? I know the TT comes with connections to the amp so will i just need cables from amp to speakers? And ive heard about different ways to wire them up like doings 2 seperate cables from the amp or just going to one speaker which is then connected to the second like a chain connection type thing. What is the best way to wire them up?

Cheers for any help!

Since your Pro-Ject Debut Carbon comes with connectors

you should only need speaker cable. Good quality 12-14 gauge speaker wire should work just fine. The Music Hall A15.2 and the Wharfedale speakers have nice speaker binding posts so to make things easier I would look for banana terminated cables. You will just hook up the right and left speaker outputs of the A15.2 to the right and left speaker terminals of your loudspeakers. No need to get fancy. I use the Dayton Audio SCP-6 cable. Various lengths available http://www.parts-express.com/cat/speaker-cables/2161
