I've mostly been happy with cables from coolnovelties.co.uk, they are affordable and quality is decent.
I also have a Coolnovelties STE cable. Quality seems perfectly acceptable to me.

I can't recommend the Cool Novelties cables highly enough. Excellent build and image quality.

They make several though, so just make certain to buy the one for the STe.

@EvilFranky Just since nobody else has recommended these guys: https://www.retrogamingcables.co.uk/atari/st

Retrogamingcables are highly regarded in the 'retro gaming' world for all consoles, so I would assume their ST cable is also of a high quality.

Plus it is screened cable:
"Constructed from custom screened cable especially made for Retro Gaming Cables."
He specifically asked for one for his STe though, and their cable is most definitely an ST only cable. It even says mono sound. He wouldn't want to get that one for his STe.

@bfollowell Yeah but also I think most STe users use the stereo connectors on the rear to speakers. But yeah you're right :)

Well, that's probably true. You'll definitely get better sound that way over TV speakers, even if you were using and old CRT with big speakers. Definitely true if you're using a newer LCD/LED TV/monitor, whose speakers are definitely crap.
