Bought some well-reviewed Q Acoustics bookshelf speakers for my record player.
Stupidly didn’t realise that cables would be sold separately. They recommend some £100 odd QED cables but is that really necessary? Would a cheaper alternative really make any difference?
Also, in terms if amps I’ve got one Logitech one that doubles up as a Subwoofer, not sure it’s suitable in terms of connections, but I also have this very old (80s/90s? - but in good working order) Pioneer one - in terms of Wattage it seems fine, but any other reason to think it won’t work. Don’t really feel like splashing out on a new one.
edit, the cables above will be excellent. Base cable (the very cheapest) may not sound great, something like what I have linked will noticeably sounds much, much better, you could spend a fortune - like the ones you have initially been recommended but they are not really worth the extra cost at all, unless you are very rich. These will be more than fine.
Also it looks like the speakers will take banana connectors, connecting with them is way easier than having to wrap the wire around the terminals. Unfortunately it looks like you won’t be able to use them to connect to your amp.
I think i’ve often heard it said that it’s probably the least important link in the chain after the aforementioned amp, speakers and source (mp3s/vinyl/flac etc).
There’s a lot of subjectivity in hifi though, but i’m inclined to scepticism when it comes to the sonic effect of cable choice.
