I am getting a new discontiued Elite 520 next week and want to upgrade the cables. I presenlty have all 1 meter cable and is tough to work with. I was going to choose 4 foot cable but noticed only a $5.00 difference (in price) bumping up to 8 foot cable on the jandr website. I doubt it will have any effects, but are there any adverse effects going with a longer cable? Also, I have found Monster THX100 for a good price, I think. I can get the following for $220.00: 16 ft sub cable 10 ft component cable for ps2 10ft optical cable for ps2 8 ft composite for satelitte 8 ft s video (2) for satelitte and monitor out 8 ft component cable for dvd 8 ft coax for dvd I think this price seems fair for the contents. What do you think?
