How many daisies before the sound goes rotten?

If I connect my computer to a set of speakers using several sound cables (1/8 inch) daisy-chained together, will the sound degrade?

After months of trouble with my Aiport Express, I'm ditching it and connecting my computer to the speakers manually. The speakers are in the other room, about 30 feet away, and I'm not sure if I can buy a cable that long that has 1/8 inch plug-ins. If I have to daisy-chain several shorter cables together using standard connectors (or "bit"), e.g. maybe 3 10-foot cables, should I anticipate a noticeable loss in sound quality?
