Any decent RCA interconnect will do.

If you're going a longer distance, a slightly beefier cable wouldnt be a bad idea. Monoprice sells good, affordable cables. On Amazon, or direct from their site.

Sturdy is always good but larger ("beefier") ain't necessary for voltage transfer if the impedances are suitable.

The skinny kind that come free (or used to) with some components probably will perform ok < 6'. But over 20'? Um.... Go monoprice.
