For used look for a pair of Nordost Blue Heaven. I also highly recommend cables made by Stu Wein in Florida. He use to make the high end digital cable that came standard with Wadia DACs. The brand name is MAS (Music and Sound). His Silver "Grey" cable is around $75 a pair and will compare favorably with the Blue Heaven. (I have a couple pairs). Stu can be found a Audioparts@aol.com or 561-642-4103 Stu also makes some nice power cords.
Cheap is subjective. You can get good and cheap at Radio Shack. What is your budget? There are alot of stores off-loading their old Audioquest (Topaz, Jade, etc) at about 40% off retail if you call around. There is also a DIY guy on Ebay who sells good cables anywhere from $30.00 for PBJ look/perform alikes to $80.00 for look/perform alikes Heros'. If you go to Ebay search on Cableplex. I have 4 of his PCs. At $50.00 per, you can't beat 'em.
Pick up some Belden 89248 & 89259 along with the RCA's of your choice. Then follow the directions on Jon Risch's website as to what to do. If you do your homework and shop around, you can build a KILLER 1 meter stereo interconnect for about $30. This cable will absolutely demolish "commercial" cables that cost hundreds upon hundreds of dollars. Sean
PS Just say "NO" to the "corporate wire bandits"
go to ebay, search for "cableplex" . I tested the connect 1 against the kimber hero and they smoked the Kimbers! for a fraction of the price. IF you want Real Performance try the Cableplex Nirvana it is @ 80/meter and bested a pair of $400 Straightwires in my tests. This is no line of Bull.... I have my entire system done in the Nirvanas now, and am very happy.
