Thanks for the posts so far. I'm in the middle of a speaker design project otherwise I would have tried different cables. I recently got a free cable from the cable guy when he installed a new HDTV box. I'll use that as my "control" cable for A/B testing. What a thing HDTV is BTW. One channel consists mostly of travel photography, flying around in choppers, etc. With this 52" DLP, it almosts looks like I have a my TV is a the windshield of the helicopter and I'm looking at the Hawaiian Islands from 2000 feet. Unbelievable. I'm starting to get this whole home theater hype. But that's for another forum.
