OK, here goes..... I just finished re-wiring the analog cables between my HD-A1 and my Denon AVR. Why is this causing me to have an ulcer? Can somebody please tell me what the deal is with the arrows showing signal flow? I only thought to check because someone on here mentioned to make sure I have the arrows pointed toward the AVR. The actual printing on the *blue* cable is light silver, so it would be easily missed. There is absolutely no mention of this on the packaging, nor in the included hookup guide, so last night I spent 4 hours (long story) getting these things hooked up with no idea that they were directional. "Random chance seems to have operated in my favor" (10 points to who can tell me where that's from), and two out of the three were pointed correctly. If I ever get the chance to get in the same room with the guy who thought it was a good idea to print this ever-so-lightly on the cable (I had to get a flashlight to see it), and nowhere else, well.... God help him..... Rant over. Deep breath. Back to more calibration festivities. Thanks for reading.
