Hi everyone:


I recently purchased the React component cables for the Wii, and notice that the audio is crunching noticeably at peak volumes. This is even noticeable in the "ding" sound when clicking through the various channels. I returned my first cables, assuming I just got a defective set, but the new set I picked up today has exactly the same problem. I'm assuming now that, at $25, React's QA isn't all that thorough...


I've run through all the usual tests -- I never encountered any audio problems when using the original Wii composite cables; the inputs i'm currently using on my tv were used by my cable box for well over a year with no problems; other inputs on my television are producing the same results; when I pipe the whole thing through my receiver (either before the television or after), the same problem occurs.


Any suggestions for fixes? If not, I'll return this set and give the official Nintendo component cables (on the nintendo web site) a shot -- unless anyone has experienced problems with them as well?


Thanks!

I got the cheapo $12 set from some HK ebayer. They work great for me. No audio issues. The picture looks quite a bit better, but I can't compare to Nintendo brand. Dizzy's advice isn't so bad though, you are usually safe with 1st party.

The Wii has distortion issues for a lot of users as it's output runs above normal line-level.


You'll notice that it's much louder than other devices attached to your receiver when switching inputs between other devices.
