Best for what?
What kind of cable?
If I had to pick a single manufacturer though, it would probably be Belden. When it comes to the two main types of cabling needed in A/V and networking: coax and twisted pair, they make what is undoubtedly and widely used professionally, the very best precision video coax, and they are the only company to make a bonded twisted pair cable which pushes UTP/STP impedance stability to pretty incredible specs, which is necessary for the best performance.
Undoubtedly, circuit city does not sell anything that comes close to the best, price no object. The nice thing about Belden though is that, being professional in nature, is not irrationally inflate in price for no reason.
The question though, is do you need broadcast level performance. And for most people they don't.
