Using Thicker HDMI's for Short Runs
I'm about to reposition components in the AV cabinet so HDMI runs will be much shorter. Possibly as short as 1.5/2 feet. The longest should be 3 to 4 feet. Currently using Monoprice slim HDMI's for their ease of use. The reason I went to slims were the superior connection and easier routing, (non-flexible issue with thicker HDMI's). With all that said if I do go to thicker gauge HDMI's I believe secure attachment add-ons gizmos may be required.
Your opinions please.
- With such short runs will thicker gauge HDMI's be of a real benefit?
- Can you suggest secure attachment add-ons to retain the thicker gauge HDMI's in place?
