My component cabinet will be around 12 feet from the TV. I have mostly composite cable running to it and 1 S-video. Now mind you Iâ€™m not MADE of money but I donâ€™t want to have a crappy picture either. Is it really necessary for me to spend 100+ bucks on each cable? I see that BetterCables has some really beautiful stuff but way out of my price range. Or is there an alternative to this?
