The good thing about them is that they are directional (shield grounding wise), well designed and build but still affordable.
I might have to give those cables a spin.

For a valid comparison to direct from the oppo, try turning off all processing on your 6005 including audyssey.

Samsung 64F8500, Panasonic 65VT50, Oppo 95, Tivo Roamio for OTA, Dish VIP722, Marantz AV8801 preamp, Rotel Amps, Atlantic Tech 8200 speakers, Seaton Submersive HP, Calman 5, Chromapure, VideoForge HDMI II, i1Display3pro, i1pro2, eecolor colorbox.

Could it be a fuse or some thing simple? It was working great last night.

merry, there are 2 knobs on the back. Are they BOTH turned up to full? Sometimes one can get touched and dial it off.

Life is enjoyable with good quality

I never use any processing in SR6005. It always runs in Pure direct mode regardless is it a music, youtube or BD movies. What ever I claim about SR6005 is based on it being set in Pure Direct. DAC in SR6005 is low end and Audissey - I have no idea why someone would like to ruin the SQ by using additional sound processing.

After speaking to parasound they suggested replacing the internal fuses. $3 and a radio shack visit later, all is fixed!

Thanks,
