    Not cables, but I used something like this to cover my wires along the baseboards and up the wall to the surrounds and I'm very happy with the results. These should allow you to use a little better/thicker cable while maintaining a clean look.

    Doug has some good bulk cable that he'll cut to your measurements. Blue Jean Cable is another I've used for surround cables.

    greater than 99.95% pure oxygen-free bare copper is what you want. 16 AWG for short runs, 14 AWG for long runs.
