I have a mits. 46 inch widescreen tv and i have a Toshiba progressive scan dvd hooked up to it via monster video 3 component cables. The picture looked good to me using the monster cables and since i just have a modest setup, i really did not think i could improve the picture by upgrading the video cables. Well I decided to place an order for the Acoustic Research master series component cables since I get them directly from Recoton via employee purchase. After waiting for about 3-4 weeks i finally got the cables in the mail yesterday. You guys have got to see how these badboys come packaged! They look incredibly sexy. After hooking them up I DEFINITELY noticed an improvement! The colors seemed more rich and not a hint of bleeding was spotted at all. I would have to say it made about a 10-15% improvement on my picture so upgrading my cables was one of the best improvements i made! I would have easily spent up to $129 on these cables and if you look on the internet, they can be had for around $70.
