Disclaimer: None of what I write here is meant to start a cable war! I'm just looking for some opinions on some questions I have on coaxial cable. As I ponder getting a new DVD player (Panny RP-91) to replace my Pioneer Elite DV-37, I would like to use a coaxial connection to my receiver. In my current setup, I have an optical digital cable connection, and just recently I also plugged in the "out-of-the-box" video cable to experiment with the coaxial connection. Unless all of you feel otherwise, I'm certain I don't want to continue to use the standard video cable supplied with the DVD player as my coaxial cable. However, I do not want to have to build my cable either unless it's really, really easy (I'm very paranoid about creating a loose connection or something that may degrade audio quality, and I'm no good with soldering). Given these circumstances, what kind of coaxial cable do you recommend I purchase? I'm not looking to win any contests for spending the most money on cable, but I do not want to sacrifice audio quality either. I do not want to fuel a debate over differences in cable quality, but I am interested to hear what you recommend I purchase. To give you price context, I would have no problem spending up to $100 on a cable if spending this money gives me a higher-quality cable. That being said, I'd be happy to spend much less if I can without sacrificing audio and build quality. Right now the cable will run from the DVD player into a Yammy DSP-A3090, but at some point it'll run into a pre/pro (Lexicon MC-12B in the future, perhaps!). The cable run does not need to be long...1.0 to 1.5 meters will probably suffice since the DVD player is right above the receiver in the rack. What would you recommend? Bettercables? Catcables? Radio Shack 75 Ohm video cable? Others? One other question: have any of you ever experienced audio dropouts with the coaxial connection, but not with the optical digital connection, using the exact same source material? I don't mean this to be specific to one DVD, but by example I'll use "Airplane!". The coaxial connection dropped out about 5 times in the first 10 minutes of the movie, but the optical connection performed just fine. Could this be due to the low-end coaxial cable I'm currently using? Looking forward to hearing your suggestions and comments, and thanks in advance.
