I am going to run 7.1 audio out on a BDP-51FD to the 7.1 input on an SR8500 to use the new master audio available on blu ray disc., as my receiver does not have HDMI and can not decode the new formats, i need the bd player to do all the decoded and send the signal over 7.1 to the receiver.

so i am in need of 8 cables (7.1) for the connection. I wanted the input as to which cables are best for the application. i know i have to make them and put on Canare "True 75 ohm" RCA connectors so iam going to buy the cable. but which cable is the question? I hear the Belden 89259 is a good cable?
o and flexible cable is not important for my app

On the other hand, you can save yourself a bundle of money by buying an optical cable at Wal-Mart and letting the receiver do the decoding. :) You'll have every bit as good sound.
First if you noticed in my other post the receiver can not decode the audio formats of blu ray, optical would only allow 5.1 and will not sound as good 7.1 DTS-HD Master audio over analog! Second I make my own cables and choose to use quality materials. Better than buying store made over priced moster cables that are of less quality.
