    Hi all,

    I'm just about to take delivery of my new Pioneer Plasma, the main plan is to wall mount it with all cables hidden etc.....

    What lenght is the max that I could increase the cables to ?

    I feel that I will need around 5-8 meters ?

    Look forward to the replies :)

    may be 3.5m

    I was sure it was 3, but a post by Joe Fernand suggests 3.5m (and he should know!)

    PS - your sig says once a meridian user, how come you've gone from M to bose?

    yep, once a Meridian user... I had one of the first LD players moded for AC-3 in 96 ish, the only AC-3 (DD) kit out was Meridian 565 & Linn was on the way but not out.

    The meridian kit was sold due to the Ex wife not paying her TAX, had to sell it..... cut a long story short now building my system back-up.

    I do like a bit of Meridian!!!

    I've got a 561 & 596 at the moment, but I'm very tempted by the new G series player with DVI.

    10m extension is about £250 but is same as standard other than length.
    Optical (30m) is about £770 but apparantley has low loss over that distance??
