Improving tv sound

I have connected my sky 2gb box (red and white audio out) to a rotel amp and b&w 601's using a10m length of maplin's Nikkai stereo phones. I understand the limitations of a 10 m length but I was still a little disappointed with the sound which was a little flat. Could the sound be improved by the following:

a better quality cable which must be 10m e.g chord

a cheapish dac 

alter some settings on my sky box that I may have missed.

i have tried to connect the tv (r l audio out) to the amp but this was worse than from the sky box to the amp. I suspect it may be the limitations of the sky source via audio outs that may be the limiting factor.

RE: Improving tv sound

Why do you need a 10m cable? Where are your Sky box, amplifier & speakers placed in relation to TV?

RE: Improving tv sound

Sky box is underneath tv ame the speakers are behind my viewing position. Tha cable has to go around the room and bay window. It is not possible to place my speakers either side of the tv (unfortunately)

RE: Improving tv sound

Unless someone recommends a decsent phono lead, i think it's a bit of a gamble on weather your sound improves, imo it's a big ask.

Calling all phono lead experts,

Another cable debate.

RE: Improving tv sound

Why don't you use the optical / coaxial connection? Which Rotel amplifier have you got?
