    I am looking for 2 or 3 (not sure yet) sets of component cables 1m and 2m.
    Right now I have 2 sets of Monster Video 3 Component cables, Monster are good but I still believe are overprice.
    So could you recomend component cables, good and not so expensive.

    Thanks
    Ivan

    Let my start by saying that I tend to think most cable claims are B.S., and I personally focus on build quality.

    I recently needed a 4 foot component cable, and bought from Blue Jean Cables (they advertise here). Very, very good build quality.

    They are pretty much priced in the same neighborhood as Radio Shack Gold, and use industry standard components (Canare connectors, Belden cable).

    A totally non-voodoo cable company.

    If you already own them and they're not broken what is the point?

    1. buy some of the ar brand from bb - they're nice quality and about half the price of monster.

    2. have someone switch out the cables but not tell you which ones you're watching. or do an a/b comparison if your gear will allow it.

    3. see if you notice a difference or not.... [​IMG]

    The point is that I need 2 or 3 more sets, I am saying I will return or just change Monster I just need more and I don't think Monster worth it $100 per set.

    Thanks
