If you wish to change the set up of your home entertainment system or even simply add in additional speakers or feed audio through into another room, then you may well find that the audio cables you have are not long enough for the job. There are many ways to extend audio cables, from simple DIY methods to using dedicated kits that will allow you to do it properly, but in either case you may well find that the quality of your audio is affected.
If you are considering improving your home entertainment centre, then there is a very good chance that quality is going to be important to you. Furthermore, by extending cables yourself you may well find that certain warranties become null and void and, as such, if you run into problems whilst extending cables or even after the fact, you may well find that you have to pay over the odds to resolve the issue.
Finding out about different audio cable types and buying the right one for your needs will not only make the process easier, but it will also ensure that you have the best possible sound quality in every single room. The more you extend any cable, the greater the potential for sound degradation, and therefore it will make far more sense to simply buy high quality cables that are the right length from the off.
Ultimately, whether you decide to extend leads or buy brand new audiophile cables, it will be wise to buy the best quality cables you can afford as these will offer you the clearest possible sound and ensure that a reduction in quality is far less likely.
