I think Nuforce provided a cable for this if you look at their pic carefully (the one with the items in the box). I guess some concern will be how to play with other speaker cable as these are not std cables.

If you want to use your customise cables you can go down to LHS to terminate one end to RJ45. Make sure it is not more than 24 guage.

Interested in this, but need the question on cables answered as well.
Also, if used as USB DAC, can subwoofer be attached? Website seems to indicate not possible.
Further, since there is a DAC, can we input digital coax/optical?

Quest you can use the Line Out (for Subwoofer) connection.

No input for digital coax. :( 

Total of 3 inputs:
RCA
USB (USB 1.1 compliance)
3.5mm Stereo

Quest you want to can come over to my place on Sat to hear them? Drop me a pm.  ;)

I guess you'd have to use the speaker inputs on the subwoofer if you want to connect one

best to ask jason at the nuForce area in AC

Wah piang, it looks like a normal UTP Cat 5 cable with RJ45 on one end and speaker plugs on the other. Looks like normal speakers cables is out of the question.

so, if fabricate at LHS, the speaker cables will still have to be UTP LAN type cable because of the RJ45 jack on the amp....unless can mod....

Wondering what set of speakers this amp can drive.... there's a set of nice NHT SuperZeros in the sales section but that's only 86db sensitivity. Anyone know if this will work?
