There is a lot of myth around the cables, of course that they do affect tone, but if you get a standard one, you will be fine, you don't have to expend a lot of money in the "holy-grail" of cables, unless you use cable of more than 30 feet! This is already true for patch cable, that usually are not longer than 1 to 1.5 feet. There is a nice article ...


Cables can effect sound, but the issue is length. Long cables can essentially be a low-pass filter, dropping the highs. I'm told the effect starts to be noticable at 25', but here, Dylan Talks Tone demonstrates the effect with a 500' cable. At 2 meters, just over 6 feet, it should be fine.


Audio cables - don't believe the hype! I'd say the difference between a $2 cable & a $25 cable would be completely & utterly undetectable. Your laptop's DACs will lose more than the cable ever will, in terms of 'pure quality'.
