I was wondering if i used less expensive component and s-video cables rather than monster cables, would i notice a diffrence in picture quality. I just purchased a sony 32 inch flat screen (not hi def) and i will be hooking up direct tv reciver with an s-video cable and of course component hookup to my dvd player into the tv. I bought the phillips brand cables for the hook-ups (they were only 11 bucks for the component and 5-6 bucks for the s-video)can anyone convince me to exchange them for the monster cables. of course i want the best possible picture and if using monster cables provides a better picture i will exchange them. the price of monster cables was much more expensive than the phillips.
