hi all i have the logitech 680 THX speakers in my room and i i have to say that it is pretty loud and i really love the sound. some sites say its 450watts and other says its 500watts, whatever. now besides using my speakers for the computer only i also use it for my home theater system and im happy with it already.

my room is a decent size room and its damn loud. now i went out to buy a generic digital output cable from radioshack. monster cable ones are specially the thx audio cables are helly expensive which i think are overpriced. i wanted to know does it matter buying generic digital output cables vs. brand named digital output cables??

oh yeah and another thing, is optical output cables better or digital output cables? thanks!

if the non-brand name are THX certified, it probably wont matter. the THX certified ones are probably REALLY damn good.

crappy wire = crappy signal transfer = crappy sound.

try it and return it if need be. that is what i would do

They may be expensive, but if you wanna try another place to buy them, try ebay. You can get your brandname cables for the cheap. I got my optical cable for 13 bux, verses 20 or so in a store.
