I dont have the direct answer to your question but I wanted
to toss in the little bit that I have experianced. First
off you dont include what you want to use your cables with,
so it is hard to say where the price/performance would begin to really apply.
I use a Toshiba SD-9200 DVD/DVDAudio player for movies, no
longer available new but, dvd performance is remarkable.
My set is the Loewe Aconda 38".
I started to use the AQ yic's as they are a very capable
cable, but I felt that would have short changed my equip-
ments capabilaties unless I went to the YIQ-5's which I
felt were not worth their cost in performance.
I decided on the Acoustic Zen Silver Photon Component cables ($265). Video performance on my set is Unbelievable,
you can easily tell the differance in quality of production
from movie to movie. Less expensive than the 5's and as
good or better in performance.
If I were to go with lesser cables such as the Beldins,or
the Yiq-1's, or 2's, etc... some of this breathtakeing
performance would not make it to the screen.
The quality of your video gear will determin what level of
cable quality you need, what you can afford may be a differant story. The AQ Yic's are very good cables, and
worth the extra cost in my opinion over lesser cables, unless their abilaties are lost on your gear.
However if you want, or need really sweet cables, consider
the Zen Silver Photons. I am still amazed every time I watch a movie.
