    I just bought some new cables to move all my gear to a closet in the rear of my Theater/Family room. I moved my Toshibia SD3815 DVD changer into the closet and because its so deep I cant place it as close as I would like to the back of the closet.

    Does anyone make a 75ohm Right Angle adaptor for component video cables?

    I purchased my Canare component cable from BDCable and would like to maintain some quality.

    Thanks for any info [​IMG]

    Canare, I believe, makes a right-angle RCA plug but not sure if it's an adapter.
    Right angle adapters will be found marketed by...
    Monster ~ $13/pair
    Acoustic Research HT417 about $10/pair
    Radio Shack...dunno about price.

    I'm sure that in your yellow pages there'll be some electronic places that'll also carry them. You could certainly order them online but s/h is likely to be a substantial portion of your order.

    While I appreciate your desire to maintain as close to a 75 ohm path as possible, it's actually a non-issue with the RCA plugs as their contribution to the signal path is maybe an inch total. This is far less that 1/4 of the wavelengths your cable will be passing.
