apple tv to bower wilkins a7 cable connection.

I own an apple tv 3 and will get my bowers and wilkins a7

http://www.bowers-wilkins.com/Wirele...7/explore.html

I want to do a digital cable connection between atv and bw a7.

what sort of cable should I buy ? Does cable quality effect sound quality overall ?

You need an optical cable, with a 3.5mm adaptor to fit the A7.

Look for something this one in the Apple Store.

Have you got any cheaper alternative ? These cables all work the same way, construction quality is lesser important not worth to pay more

You can probably pick one up for around 5 if you shop around but is 15 really too much to pay to use with a 700 speaker?

A cheaper speaker will give reduced sound quality, but a cheaper cable will not have any affect on sound quality. Just a better build does bot make it worth 5 times more. Cable will be static.

Amazon has plenty of cheap cables, just make sure you get one with the 3.5mm adaptor.
