Tom has put together an easy to follow guide showing the construction of simple line-level RCA interconnect cables. The very simple cable recipe uses shielded instrument wire and good quality RCA plugs which you should be able to find at your local instrument shop. Tom used Sommer SC-Tricone MKII wire and Rean RCA plugs, and you can use your favorite brands. Tom's finished DIY shielded RCA interconnect cables are shown below.

The cables are very simple to construct requiring only basic soldering skills. The required parts are easy to source and a pair of these shielded RCA cables can be built in about one hour and for as little as $10. Tom indicates that these simple DIY cables are a great upgrade over typical stock and other inexpensive interconnects. See the project page, DIY Shielded RCA Interconnect Cables for full details.
