Component Cable From 100 Quid DVD Player

I've got my Plasma coming on Friday and need to connect my Pio 575A DVD player to it via component. So I'm trying to decide on the best cable to use. I've checked out the Mark Grant cables and they look pretty good, put spending almost half the cost of my DVD player on a component cable seems to be a bit of an unbalanced approach. Is an MG cable overkill considering the DVD player that I've got? Is there a cheaper make of cable that would perform relatively well l - costing say 10 to 15 quid?

Thanks

An alternative that *may* be better is JVC's component lead.
Tried and tested I think it does extremely well for a £10 purchase from Curry's. Rubbish, inadequate or not up to the job do not come to mind when viewing via this cable. Very clear image and saturated colours. IMV can easily be mistaken for something much much more expensive.

The Dixons near my work has two types of JVC component cables, one for 7 quid and one for 8. Probably worth a punt to see if I can detect any PQ issues with them - not much to lose if they are crap.

:thumbsup: Don't think you can go wrong. Dunno the difference but £1 is not gonna break the bank. The ones I tried have spring coil strain reliefs at the connectors.
