Once only because I needed a video cable in a pinch I stuck in a Nordost Blue Heaven audio interconnect that was just hanging around, and used it as the video cable. The result was the best picture I have ever seen in my HT system. I was totally taken by surprise. If anyone has a pair, give them a view. Of course the audio was very good.
They make the best and they ONLY make one type of cable, and NONE of it comes off a spool that is also sold in Home Depo (or anywhere else for that matter).
Many of these cable companies claim to make the best digital/video, analog interconnects, speaker cables, ac cords, etc. Laughable, except for their ad campaigns.
Digital/video cables are all about specs. Analog cables and ac cords are another story.
Illumianti are so close to perfect, and so costly to produce, and terminate, that the odds of seeing any real competition for them any time soon is not very likely.
They start at $45 per terminated meter in single runs and are sold everywhere.
Worlds oldest & first Illuminati dealer (1992).
Before you buy any component video cable, you should try the Silver Serpent cable from BetterCables.com. It sells for $99 (shipping included), and it's an excellent component video cable. It comes with a 30-day trial period. I have one in my HT system, and highly recommend it. For more info, go to the Web site: www.bettercables.com
"Digital/Video cables are all about specs." ... from HelloSimplyMusic's comments, is totally right and totally wrong. Video cable performance can be objectively judged, but there is nothing objective about choosing which specs to pay attention to when anticipating video distortion. The world of high frequency cables is (for good reason) preoccupied with "loss." However, loss is a minor consideration in the short lengths employed in an A/V system. Distortion is what you see ... and simple test patterns make it plain as day what's right and what's wrong.
Illuminati D-60 is incredible, so I assume their other coaxs are also good. I use AudioQuest/CinemaQuest.
