at the risk of being politely (please) directed to another post(s) somewhere in this forum


Are there any differences between:


$18 DVI cables vs $100 DVI cables

$16 Toslink vs $75 Toslink

$12 Component vs $110 component (or higher?)


My thoughts are:


1. DVI is sending 1s and 0s....so, I don't think there is much chance for degradeation...


2. Toslink is optical...my guess is theirs not much difference if any...


3. Component is analog so their is a chance for degredation...but how much? And would can you notice it on a DLP?

Yes. The price.


IMO, Terk, Bose, Monster, etc. sell things at ridiculous prices because some people love to pay ridiculous prices.


As for component cables, I use good quality RG-6 coax, terminated with RCA connectors. You can make your own to any custom length you want (within reason).
