Do not connect NS 10 to a Samson amp Trust me......
I did that whith a Samson 2x300 Samson studio amp and. first it it sounds crap it has no heedroom and sounds very dull.tutt

The cables i used where supra or mogami they will do the job but you have to get a better amp to get full value on the NS 10 they deserve it i garanti.

You don't know what cables, as in the type, or are you looking for a brand recommendation?

Just get good low capacitance speaker wire and you will be fine. Good speaker wire doesn't have to be expensive.

Even Lumex/Romex works well, though I guess there is advantage to stranded wire.

Samson amps aren't the greatest, but the sky won't fall on your head if you use them with NS10s. I had a Servo 500 for a while.

Is your 150 per side, or 75 per side? NS10s like lots of power.
