Which component video cable should I buy?


Yes, I guess I'm probably the last dude on earth still using component cables for my HDTV(going from my cable box to the TV). Looking for a nice set of component video cables that would provide improved picture quality over my current inexpensive set of Monoprice component cables, which are from 10 or more years ago.

I did run a search here, and all the threads that came up seemed to be from 2005 to 2007, so that is bit outdated. My budget for these would be ~$100 or so. Should I just go with Audioquest or Wireworld, or are there better products or better values out there?

fwiw I use component cables made by Signalcable and they were a big improvement over stock cables
ZU is very good and not expensive.
You can always buy 3 separate 75ohm digital IC's if you happen to come across a good deal. Also, a while back, Cable Company told me that Monster made the best low cost video cables. They used the term "miracle products". I never tried them myself, but I trust their judgment.
Have a TARA Labs RSC component Video Cable on Consignment form a Customer - make me an offer :-) they are probably 1.5 - 2M long

Back when composite video was the standard, my Signalcable composite was easily the best I used. True 75 ohm Canare connectors properly fitted is all the magic you need and the Signalcables did it right at a right price.
I used Tributaries S which was their best at the time, and still have them in 20 foot length. At that length they provided a great resolution and color accuracy. These would be available if you need a long set. If interested I could place an ad here for them. I also have a 2 m set of Analysis Plus that also were very good. Again I can place an ad if interested. I did replace Monster Cable with these and did gain in all areas of picture quality. I did have a set of Audioquest that I felt these both out performed as well. This isn't intended as an an ad as much as a suggestion for brands to look at.
The best component video cable I ever found and used extensively in 2 different HT systems was Audioquest's YIQ-5. They are outstanding; I had several and they were first rate. The ISF Engineer who did my video calibrations constantly praised them as well.

The post above noting that you could use 3 (matching!) 75-ohm digital cables for RGB purposes is spot-on. At one point I was using three Audioquest Eagle Eye cables while I waited for my 4th YIQ-5 to be made and arrive; the results were very impressive.....

YIQ5 should not break the bank if found on the used market.....
These are all you will ever need!
