    I need to get a longer (at least 6 feet) S-Video cable to run from my S-Video switcher (holds all my video game systems) to my receiver. I'm trying to stay on a budget and was wondering if anyone uses Acoustic Research cables. They are cheap, but I don't want to but something I will regret. I just hate to pay $50.00 for another Monster Cable. Any suggestions?

    AR cables are fine. With Monster Cables I think you end up paying for the name more than the performance.

    Best price on AR stuff is John at the swapmeet, most are between $5 and $10. Heh, sorry if that doesn't help much, but he is at several of the SoCal Hamfests.

    Kenwood Outlet stores also have the AR stuff at not too bad prices from time to time.

    AR has a range of s-video cables. I used to use the silver pro ones 20' long and they were good quality, comparable to the higher end monsters.

    I use Acoustic Research component cables and couldn't be happier with them.
