    I'm finishing up my downstairs, which includes my HT room. I'll be ordering some materials from partsexpress.com and wondered if I should go ahead and get their cables. Below is the cables I was interested in:
    6' component video cable
    3' coaxial digital cable
    If anyone knows anything about these cables or Dayton cables in general, please share your experience. If I don't get these I'll probably get the Acoustic Research Pro series cables.
    Thanks

    I have a couple of their optical cables and have no complaints, decently built, good for plug in and forget operations. Personally I think that quality of digital cable has very little impact on sound quality. I have used cheap RCA $0.99 patch cables before and never notice a difference. YMMV

    Dayton is the House Brand for partsexpress, and I've always regarded them as comparable or in the same league as AR Pro.
    But that's just my hunch...
