    Is it really worth spending the money for the Monster cable that has both the digital (optical) and component outputs? Is there another brand out there? I have always heard that Monster is overpriced and at $70 I cant bring myself to buy this cable. What do you guys use?

    Considering it is the PS2 I would just get Sony's cables for alot less. I have tried both and couldn't see a who-lott of improvement.

    Get the Sony component cables and the Monster Optical Audio Cable.
    For ~$55, you'll get the best of both worlds: crystal clear sound (SURROUND for most DVDs and some games, ESP GTA:VC, SSX Tricky, & NHL 2003), great video, and a good price. I have both, and I'm quite happy with them. [​IMG]

    Thanks guys. I picked up the Sony Component cables today and I have a 3' Monster optical cable as well. The HDTV shows up on Thursday. I sure hope after break in that I am very pleased with the PQ. [​IMG]
    Any games that I "must" have to enjoy the hookup even more?
