    I went to the store today and the only component cable I could find in town was 12 foot so I ended up buying it (acoustic research, was only 40 dollars) anyways, will there be any noticable difference picture wise between this and a 6 foot cable?

    If you hit the Canare or Belden web sites and look at the loss per frequency graphs you will see that these are all measured with 100 feet of wire.
    And all of these wires have acceptiable loss (less than 15 db) over 100 feet.
    So I agree with Chu that you will experience little difference between 6' and 12 of coax.
