I've said it and lovingDVD has said it....just buy the Celerity and be done with it. As the Chinese Proverb goes: "When you buy quality, you only cry once".

This is the first time that I've had an issue since I got this new Sony player and I've watched multiple discs.
I've contacted lovingdvd about Celerity. Brolicbeast said Ethereal has a 50 footer that passed the test for him and then the Sound and Vision article said Bluejeans Cable has a cable that may work. One thing is for sure, the Monoprice Luxe Series is a no go at 40 feet.
Hey guys, so I have a Celerity Fiber Optic cable and the Ethereal MHX+HDM-GA1 combination BOTH running to my projector from my Lumagen Pro. MHX is connected to Input 1, Celerity is connected to Input 2.
I have heavily tested (both cables into input 1 for testing), and both cables are essentially equal in performance. Very reliable, but I will say that Celerity has stated that their 48gps cable is due out later this year. The existing cable will not handle the full 48gps, so as always, run conduit for future swap outs!
But yeah--can't go wrong with either one. The Celerity is cooler, conceptually: however, it wasn't as "plug and play" as the MHX was. The MHX has a powered accelerator (HDM-GA1)at one end, as opposed to Celerity requiring power on both ends, but the Celerity is better priced--especially if you know who to get in contact with...and it sounds like you do--the lover of a certain legacy disc format ;-)
I have both hooked up to the JVC RS520, so if there are any content torture tests you'd like me to run on one of both cables, HDR or otherwise, let me know and I'll run them. Odds are, we own all the same discs....because we're crazy about this stuff!
