I second the comments by Audiofeil and Drtmth58.
Keep in mind that the short length you are specifying will minimize most cable effects and cable differences.
Although keep in mind also that increasing the length to 3 feet would broaden the range of available choices. If you want to do that, you might consider pro-oriented cables such as those sold by B&H Photo Video under the Comprehensive and Pearstone brand names, including this one for $30:
Yes, these are better than what I found. I like the solid core wire idea. On second thought, the Audioquest silver RCA's I found will corrode faster than gold.
Comprehensive looks like the best of the lot, but BH does not sell shorter than 1 meter.
Can't tell if this is molded. I am asking them.
Not so sure about signal cable as it appears to be stranded. I like the foamed teflon dielectric concept.
I think the Blue Jeans re Belden / Canare offer great value as I've used Canare before and it was pretty good. Only thing better than crimp is spot-weld IME. I'm thinking Signal or Mogami (which also used quad wire design) may be better.
Right now I have ATS Platinum "balanced RCA" directional RCA's. Sam Tellig(?) raved about balanced RCA a few years back although this is not theoretically possible. Also got some Dayton Audio which looks to be pretty good value. My A-Q was great until something broke internally.
