    what I want to do is connect 15" LCD flat panel to the multizone output of my Lexicon MC-1. the cable length between the MC-1 and the display will be about 27 feet. most of the sources on the MC-1 will be available to the multizone output (DVD, Sat., SVHS, CD audio, AM/FM).
    The two options are to:
    a) run an s-video plus stereo pair directly from the output of MC-1 to the back of the TV (cable will be run through floor and under house).
    b) run an s-video plus stereo pair to an RF modulator located near the MC-1 and RG-59 under the house to connect the RF modulator to the TV.
    with such a small display, will there be a perceptable difference between the two connection methods?
    here's the 15" display I have in mind ($380 shipped, BTW):

    here's the RF modulator I'd be using:

    I chose to modulate my signal since it was 40' from the source. The display is a 20" Sony Wega and the resulting picture/sound is excellent.

    which device did you use for the modulator?

    I also modulated my DVD output so I needed a modulator with multiple inputs. The Shack modulator is good but there better ones out there at 5-10X the price.
