You will need to terminate one end of your cables to RJ45. LHS can customise it for you.

You can use any audiophile cables but you just need to terminate on end to RJ45

Most likely you have to buy it seperately. Meantime till the adaptor is out, I'll be making a pair of longer runs.
Anyway I dont see myself spending more than $100 bucks on speaker cables for this set up.

You should make an MO for that too. Help us make :P
I feel like trying something like anticables for this setup. haha
My desktop PC speakers are more than 2m apart. Really hope the default cables are long enough.

Ok let me look into it.  ;)

The default cables (1M pair) are long enough for your desk.

Just an idea. Why not terminate a custom short cable with rj45 on 1 end & speaker binding post on the other end.

In this way, U can freely change your speaker cables.  ;D

But of course the bottle-neck will still be the rj45 cable. If using 8 strands of AWG24 as in a standard Cat5 or 6 cable, 4 strands as + & 4 strands as -, the largest gauge size possible is 4 x AWG24 which is about AWG18.

So it might not be worthwhile to buy speaker cables that r much larger than AWG18.
