I don’t think there is any disadvantage doing it either way. It really comes down to if the location of the unit matters from a security POV.

Using a 10m RCA lead or 10m of speaker wire you will not hear a difference. I’d probably grab some speaker wire and do it that way. Anything that is suitable for outdoors would be best, but it’s overkill for a temporary setup for 1 month per year so any 16 gauge would suffice IMO

I would suggest trying to minimize the signal cable length between the RPi and amplifier as any signal degradation or induced noise in that cable will be increased by the amp.
