I'm a little confused here... For my bedroom, I recently picked up a few cables (S-Video and Component) from Wal-Mart. The cables are made by Philips, and they seem to be part of Philips "Gold Series." The weird part is this: they don't have the black tubing like most of Philips stuff. They have some sort of silver weave, with a clear plastic tubing on top. I've been very pleasantly surprised with the quality... I can't tell any difference between the performance I get from them and from my other cables (mostly AR, with a few Monster products that I picked up cheap). I've been doing some searching for information online, and I haven't really been able to come up with much of anything. The only site I've found that mentions these cables ( THIS SITE ) says these cables are produced by Philips Canada. If so, I'm curious why my local Wal-Mart would be carrying them. For comparisons sake, if you visit that website, the products that begin with an "M" product number are the typical black cables I'm used to seeing at Wal-Mart. The products that begin with "P" are what I've seen recently.
