    See my system below...

    I want good CD sound, and I want pretty good DVD sound. In other words, I think it would make sense to spend a little more on the RCA cables than an optical digital cable for the DVD player. How good of cables should I buy? Also, I have a monster Y connecter, pretty good .5meter monster cable and gold plated radio shack 1/4" adapters to connect the sub to the receiver. I use decently sized monster speaker cable to all my speakers.

    are you saying you want to buy rca cables for the dvd player instead of a digital cable? i could be wrong, but i dont think you can get dolby digital or dts with analog cables. some people say 10% of your system cost, but i just buy AR Pro cables and let that be it. they are good build quality, somewhat inexpensive, and sound/look great.
    they arent the best, but definately not the worst.

    I think he was simply asking whether he should spend more on the analog RCA cables than on the digital cable(s). That's propably a good decision if one wishes to purchase pre-made cables, but since I'm not much of a believer in boutique cables (I've started to make my own from generic RG-6) I'll let others comment.
