    They are good quality cables. So are Ultralinks.

    Unless you think the Ultralinks are bad, stay with what you have and spend the $30 on a DVD or two.

    THX certification doesn't DO anything. It just means that the company paid THX to certify their cables.

    The criteria by which THX certifies cables include:
    • Audio cable electrical specifications for insertion loss and bandwidth to minimize frequency response deviations and signal losses, given a usage length.
    • A widely recognized color coding standard for easy channel recognition and simplified polarization.
    • Jacket printing of vital information to indicate polarity, grounding location and usage length limits.
    • Mechanical specifications for connection integrity insuring cabling’s longevity and reliability.
    • Video cable electrical specifications for insertion loss and bandwidth to preserve color purity and picture detail and stability.

    Doesn't mean that non-THX cables do not meet these criteria.

    I have an additional question since we are talking cables. Would it make a difference in sound or video quality switching my current s-video and opitical cables to a "so called" better cable like Monster cables? A co-worker says it would make a difference, but I'm not so sure. [​IMG]

    They are good cables and $30 is a good price for them. Did you win the auction?
