    Your question is a little vague since your not really saying what you want out of the cables. If cost is the factor then I would go with the AR Master series. For me here in Canada, the AR Master Series is reasonably priced for what it offers compared to Monster, Straight Wire or Internet offerings. Currently my setup has AR Master for optical, component, interconnect and Surge protection. Checkout the specs.
    Optical Cable:

    MS 280 3 feet
    AR® exclusive FNT™ technology provides the most comprehensive, advanced protection against kinking to maintain constant light transfer for uninterrupted high performance.
    Precision-machined Toslink™ optical connections for superior fit and signal transfer.
    Corrosion-free 24k gold-plated colar surrounds and protects a polished convex lens for error-free digital signal transfer.
    Highest-grade fiber engineered specifically to meet the demands of digital audio/video components for accurate high-speed signal transfer.
    Two layers of non-relective cladding for added optic fiber protection and optimum light transfer.
    Professional quality 8 mm PVC jacket and molded strain relief maintains assembly integrity and protects against damage.
    Interconnects:

    MS 230 3 feet
    AR® exclusive FNT™ technology provides the most comprehensive, advanced protection against noise and interference.
    Frequency-corrected silver-coated very fine multi-stranded >99.99% pure oxygen-free copper conductors improve signal transfer for delivery of full frequency range.
    Locking, 24k gold-plated precision-machined RCA connectors will split center pins for superior fit and signal transfer.
    Teflon® insulation provides the lowest dielectric absorption for hightest signal integrity and accuracy.
    Two layers of shielding: one 100% overlapped Mylar® foil for RFI isolation, and one 95%+ copper braid for EMI isolation.
    Highest-quality insulating and stranded fiber dielectrics with low contants for greatest efficient signal performance, accuracy and purity.
    Twisted pair balanced and directional noise drain construction combine for natural, accurate noise-free sound reproduction
    Component:

    I don't have Monster cables, but instead have the AR pro series (blue cables). To me they are well made and I was able to negotiate a good price.
