Thanks! I am using decent($60ea.) optical cables for both my HD DirecTV and HDDVD player with decent($80ea.) HDMI cables for video, is this the best way to fully optimize my A/V set up? Considering my hardware and speakers.
Hi Kent - I hate to break the news to you, but a $5-10 HDMI cable will perform equally to a $80 HDMI cable, over reasonable cable lengths (e.g. under 15 feet). The Monster cables sold at big box stores are marked up by 1000% or more.
