I need some good Component cables, but I do not want to spend more than I need to. I know Monster is very expensive, but there has to be another brand that is as good or even better for cheaper. I think 6ft cables would serve me best for compatability of component placement. If you strongly disagree with getting the 6ft becuase of impedance/noise issues, then please let me know. Also, I have a nice Pioneer VSX-35TX and need to know if I should run my video through it. I have been using it so far and have not noticed any problems, however I have not been using a High Def TV or source. The only reasons I can come up with for not using the receiver for video switching are that maybe the quality might diminish with the Receiver interface and the fact that my HD TV I am getting will save different video settings for each input and when using the receiver only one input will be utilized on the TV. Thanks for the suggestions.
