    Does anyone know anything about NXG cables? They look amazingly similar to
    the blue series of cables from AR. Are they possibly made by AR and sold under
    another name? Or another company?
    I can't find a company website or any reviews.
    Does anyone know any info, reviews, or how good they are?
    I'm curious, because i can rewire my entire HT system (11 cables) for $47 and
    change using NXG from www.shoppingmatrix.tv and this price really interests me
    if they are decent cables. Here is what looking at I'm buying:

    No idea. Probably made in asia somewhere as they seem to be sold all over the place. This would seem to suggest that they meet their design objectives. Didn't see any pictures or information but I doubt they're AR's. If there's a return policy, knock yourself out...and ummmmm...clean up all that blank space on your post, ok?

    Sorry 'bout the blank space, but i typed the post up in Front Page and copied and pasted the HTML. Any idea why all the blank space is there? Is it front page? or is it HTML in general?

    thanks

    I just cut into one of their basic line, audio cables and they are not shielded.

    since you've sliced it open and I guess that makes it history, can you decribe what's inside and how the wires are layed out? also, if you're in the mood, slice it up to the rca connectors and post back what you found. pics, if possible would be appreciated. thanks!

    i'd imagine the blank spaces are hard returns...just go into edit and delete the extra lines and resave.
