Default Dayton audio vs emotiva cables

Ready to add some some interconnects to my Christmas list and needed some opinions from my fellows members. Any thoughts on Dayton Audio or Emotiva cables ?? Dayton appears to be slightly cheaper. I don't want to go with super cheap and can afford about $50 per 9-10 feet of cable. Any thoughts would greatly be appreciated.
TV: Samsung UN60ES7100 BD Player: Sony BDP-S590 Receiver: Pioneer VSX-1018
Speakers: Definitive Technology BP8B Fronts, Definitive Technology CS-8060HD Center, Definitive Technology SR-8080 Surrounds & Rear Surrounds SUB: BIC America F-12 & Sony SA-WM40

For me, personally, it would come down to which one is more visually appealing (though you probably won't have them anywhere you can see them, but that's just me). I own two pairs of the Dayton Audio RCA interconnets and one of the 6' Digital Coaxial (for my center since they don't sell an RCA version that short with just a single cable) and the build quality is very nice. Hefty, grabs and holds onto the jacks nicely, and just overall look great. Can't comment on how effective the shielding is or anything because I've never had issues with EMI/RMF, but I'm sure it's more than adequate (or maybe that's why I've never had issues? haha). Never owned the Emo's so can't comment on those, but I endorse the Dayton's. Good luck~

I've bought recently five Emotiva X Series digital coaxial RCAs to connect my receiver (onkyo 818) and my amplifier (emo xpa-5). I'm really satisfied about the finishing, the quality of the terminations and the shielding. They hold onto the jacks nicely too and and my system runs perfectly with them. A friend of mine bought two Emo X Series speaker interconnects for his fronts and he's reallys satisfied too.

Most Dayton items are very well made and more than worth their cost when they go on sale. Great even at their normal price which is typically lower than other brands. The only items I don't like from Dayton are their Class T amps which are poorly made internally. But their other items are excellent.
