I just bought a panasonic home theatre I a box system and I wanted to get the best picture so I went out and bought one of those monster S-Video cable to run from them Receiver/DVD player to the TV. I swear I can't see the slighest difference from your standard composite cable. So I was thinking, one I get that new widescreen projection TV I've been thinking about is it really worth getting component cables to wire your system? They cost about $80 and I wouldn't want to blow that and not actually be able to see any difference. So whats the deal, are these cables just a big sham to suck more money out of us?
