Audioquest is good in any system, regardless of cost. No need to drop long green on cables.

Try out some of the smaller companies from Audiogon, I have had great luck with Signal Cable and Balanced Power Tech cables. These cables offer performance well over their price level, and in my opinion will best most larger companies "entry level" cables. Let's face it, we all like exotic cables but the markup in them is ridiculous, start with something simple and find out what you need in your system then tailor from there before dropping more money than necessary.
I suggest you stick with clean, tight connections, as short runs as possible, and with the likes of kimber, signal cable, blue jeans, etc. Once the rest of your system, including the all important (and often overlooked) room acoustics, are up to your satisfaction you can spend to your heart's content on expensive R,L, and good old C.
Make sure you practice due diligence w.r.t. your room acoustics, otherwise you may neglect the true potential of your hardware.
This was something I have put off for too long, and now I hear how misguided I was to assume the room was ok, while changing hardware more frequently than a roomful of environmental advocates utter the phrase "global warming".
