    Digital optical cables carry digital signals. You would not lose any signal if you use cheap ones? Am I right? Are there any reasons that you should go for those expensive cables?

    You might want to try searching through previous posts for this. There have been a gazillion discussions on this very topic, which should provide you enough reading material for days.

    The short answer is, "it depends", or, opinions vary. There are good engineering reasons for why you might not hear a difference, and good engineering reasons for why you could hear a difference.

    Take a peak at Lowe's Home Improvement. They have TOSLink cables at about $10!
