All of the audio and video cables in common, whether they are made for audio or for video, digital or analog: they're all in the signal chain, carrying actual audio and video signals from device to device. Too much is often made of the impact of cable attributes upon video and audio quality, but it's fair to say that any cable in the signal chain, carrying signals, has at least the potential to have an impact upon the quality of your system's audio or video output.

low-quality cables can rob you of the performance you paid for when you bought your system.

Poorly made cables can allow noise and interference to compromise the signals coming from your source components, resulting in a subpar listening or viewing experience. They generally won't give you the best-quality connection, and often aren't built to last. And of course some free cables may simply be too long or too short for your setup, making them less than ideal.

Lastly, personal touches of theater decor should never be overlooked. Consider adding a movie poster frame or two, either inside the theater or just outside the entrance. These are a movie theater standard, and you can always change the posters inside to easily change up the home theater’s look!
