You can either do a shot gun set which is two cables at the speaker end or 2 completely separate pairs either way works just as well.
I would be more concerned with the quality of the cabling.
Also The BAT CD player although a very good player is out of date and a newer digital front end will sound better.
You absolutely want to eliminate those cheap jumpers.
More cable equals more current and better sound.
