    Hi! Sorry if I'm rehashing the past:

    Does anyone have some insight regarding Steren component video cable versus Monster Cable component video cable? I've got a line on some Steren cable, but I'd like to know if it's good stuff or not (I've not heard much about Steren).

    Any thoughts?
    Thanks much[​IMG]

    Cable, if it is of the correct capacitance, has no effect on the sound (regardless of what many would tell you).

    Thanks Jack. Is the same true for component video cable? I know Monster puts out good quality component video, but is Steren at all inferior?

    Hard to say. I like the relatively cheaper GE stuff myself. Circuit City sells it. I got lots and lots of people using it without issues including myself.

    Ok, thanks guys. It sounds like I can't really go wrong with Steren component video (it's at a great price). Excited to finally upgrade from S-video!
