    Cables to run two monitors

    Hey sorry to sound like a n00b first off.
    I just bought a pair of M-Audio BX5a studio monitors.
    They have XLR balanced and balanced/unbalanced inputs. I plan on getting a mixing table sometime, but i cant at the moment. So now all my audio is coming out of a minijack plug on the back of my sound card. Obviously my question is what type of cable do i need?
    Here are two thoughts

    I want to get the best quality that I can, hence the expensivish speakers. Feel free to post links.

    I would go with the first one. XLR's are locking connectors that are less likely to pull out, if bumped. It's also easier to extend the XLR one if needed.

    Yea, go with the xlr one, like bassred said. Techwise it makes no difference, other then what he said about a more solid connection.
