    Hello chaps..

    My Panny 100 and HK dvd25 should turn up anyday now.

    My question is, cables, I need a nice long 10-15m component cable to connect these two beauties up.

    After speaking to richers sounds, they suggested that I go to Maplins and buy them from there as it would work out cheaper (i'm not very keen on forking out over £150 on cables).

    What sort of conectors are component? Are they phono or BNC, is there anything else I should know about?

    Thanks for your time.

    You should use good quality crimped RCA phono 75ohm plugs and cables for best results. There are a few suppliers of such cables on these forums. Might be around£150

    Alternatively you can use 3 single lengthsof 75ohm cable with RCA phono plugs. Could be under £50

    I bought a Vivanco 15m component cable from unbeatable.co.uk for £31.50 delivered.

    Search on the unbeatable site for:
    Vivanco SICRR3315 Cable

    It seems the cheapest around and I'm of the opinion that the other £120 for a £150 cable would be better spent on a new Pal prog dvd player such as the Yamaha S540.

    I can't say if it's any good as I haven't bought a dvd with component out yet. I bought the cable first in case I decide to start chasing the cables into the ceiling and walls.


    Cheers,
    Cal.
