    Hi, I have just ordered a Panny TX32LXD52 LCD and i already have a Denon DHT550SD DVD system. I want to hook it up via component cable on progressive scan. My budget is ideally about £50 so i am after some ideas. I hear IXOS are good also QED and Van Der Hul. Please help cheers

    Hi,

    What length of cable do you need?

    Check out Mark Grant cables here for quality cables at good prices. Have 5 of them myself, ranging from 2m to 10m. You'd be hard pressed to find a bad thing said about them on these forums :thumbsup:

    Cheers

    Andy

    I need a 1mtr cable. I've seen those Belden cables. Are they what they call reference grade?? How they compare to the high end QED ones?

    Sorry, can't give you a comparison as I have never done one myself. Mark quotes them as broadcast quality, i.e. what the TV companies use, so they got to be quite good, but I would not say reference quality, but I could be wrong :)

    Hopefully someone else may be able to help out with the comparisons.

    Cheers

    I see you have contacted Mark about this in his for sale thread, hopefully this has persuaded you to give him a go.

    I've also left a review on Mark's website about his cracking cables. Hopefuly more of the hundreds of people who have bought his cables will do the same here :smashin:

    Cheers

    Hi screemer, if you want to contribute to the advertising budget, packaging costs, non-technical 'design' costs, and grotesque profit margins of one of the 'brand name' companies, then go for their cables.

    If you want the best possible performance from home AV kit at reasonable cost, buy the Mark Grant ones (or similar from other suppliers). You won't be disappointed :smashin:.
