I have been following the DIY cable thread that has been going on... I have no experience to DIY cables but I think is is a good opportunity for me because I'm needing both interconnects and speaker cables (for bi-amp of my Energy C6's). I see that people are using Belken 89259 or 1506a for component video. How are these for either receiver to amp interconnects or speaker cable? I took a look at the links but I got such a head rush from information I'm still trying to sift through it all. Suggestions? I would need short lengths for the interconnects and 5 or 6 foot runs for the speakers (and I see the speakers cables are made from two sections. The core of one intertwined with the outer mesh of the other and vice versa). I guess about 40 or 50' total for everything. Where do you suggest purchasing? Thanks!
