    Just get Van Damme "Blue" from Maplins and buy some DVDs with what you save!

    Got to say that when I installed a Home Cinema system it was quite obvious that high quality cables were not really viable - just didn't give any real improvement in sound quality, I did comparisons with cable up to £40/mtr - so I went to Maplins and got a 100m drum of 42 strand for £18 (this is now £12/20m) and was more than happy with the results. So would consider the cheapest Van Damme at £1.19 overkill and buy even more DVD's:D

    Obviously if you are setting up a multi £k AV system there could be some benefit, but probably not much.

    Oh no I feel another extensive -do they don't they- cable debate about to happen:boring: sorry one and all.

    I can feel the equivalent of the Four Yorkshiremen sketch coming on:


    "I used 300 miles of wet string, cost me fourpence ha'penny...
    ...the silences were amazing, noise floor was wayyyyy down....
    ...in fact, couldn't hear anything at all..."
