I am trying to get the best set up at a reasonable price. I have the Hitachi PD7200 Plasma. To this I have connected my two x box via the high def pack and my Toshiba Sd - 530E DVD player (dont have cables for this yet, hence this post) All of this goes to my plasma via the joytech AV centre http://www.play.com/play247.asp?pa=srmr&page=title&r=ELEC&title=171036 However as this does not support component switching I have bought these to enable me to hook it up http://www.keene.co.uk/system/index.html Then I have these cables running from the AV centre to the Plasma (again using the convertors from Keene) http://ws4.richersounds.com/showproduct.php?cda=showproduct&pid=CAMB-DIG-PREM-1M Those last cables were sold to me with the DVD player, they seemed pretty pricey, but the guy in store gave me three for £50, not the £90 stated, so it seemed ok. So questions is, how much should I spend on the DVD player component? Im guessing with a chaining effect as I have above your pic is only as good as your weakest link? Im wondering if these connectors from Keene will be reducing my picture at all? I must admit I see no dropo in quality on my x box pic, but have yet to try the DVD. Sorry for the long winded post. Hopefully it made sense. Thanks.
