    I'm looking for premium grade:
    S-video
    Toslink
    Component-Belden

    Only company I can find that has all 3 is A2ZCables but their shipping policy to AK sucks. The reason I'm looking for one company is to save on shipping. I don't feel like paying more for the shipping than the cables.

    Any others?

    Thanks,
    Ed

    I could use some of that colder weather. See if you've got some professional places up there. Yellow pages might turn up something but I'll hunt around a bit. Out of curiousity, what're they hitting you up on s/h?

    Once they turned down ground shipping and wouldn't send postal I didn't bother replying. Only options were 2 day air by Fed Ex. or UPS, which we get charged extra for 2 day air. It's BULL 'cause we HAVE TO pay the extra even tho we never get anything in 2 days. Maybe in metro areas, but......ahh man, you really got me started now. I gotta quit before I bust a vein! This is my one big sore spot about living up here.
    Thanks for checking
    I've tried:
    Bluejean
    BD
    Heartland
    Rhino
    Bettercables...the shipping is definitely less than their cables!

    Although they're not a vendor for cables, SprocketHeads in Anchorage, (907) 248-4829, does production stuff. Maybe if you call them, they can put you in touch with somebody who knows where in Alaska you can pick up what you're looking for. "Hello, my name is Eddie, and I was wondering if you could put me in touch with somebody who...." Ed, ya never know. People sometimes like helping out.

    As much as I hate to suggest anyone going to these guys because of their high prices...
    Try Cobalt Cables

    Other wise if my memory serves me correctly an e-bay seller may have all the cables you are looking for. Cable Solutions or something along those lines. I'm sure someone here can provide the url. Being an e-bay seller they may be more flexible in shipping options as well.

    Thanks for the tips
    So far have gone to partsexpress.com
    Does anyone know about their AR Pro II brand of cables or how about their own Dayton brand?
    I like the idea of saying how I would like shipped (UPS 2 day....NOT!)

    Give trianglecable.com a look Eddie. Daytons are their house brand ane work fine too...another thought is that you could always call Belden and maybe they can hook you up with a place up there.

    Thanks again, Chu.
    Checked Cobalt
    With prices like that, they SHOULD have free shipping
