    Dear All,

    I am looking to purchase:

    a) Digaital coax cable to connect DVD to the Dolby processor(10 meters)

    b) Cable to connect Sub-woofer and the Amplifier (10 meters)

    Please could anyone recommend decent cables at a reasonable
    price point.

    Does lenghth of 10 meters Degrade quality of signal ?

    Thanks in advance,

    Rash

    I got some Ecosse Reference Producer (winner of the 2000 What Hi-Fi awrds in its price range) coaxial cable 7 meters long a few years back to connect my DVD to my surround pro. It cost £17.50 per meter then but pick your self up of the floor it will not cost you £175 for 10 meters most of the cost is in the gold terminals. It cost me around £30-32 for 7 meters.
    Sevenoaks ordered the length for me and it came in about a week.

    Rash,

    Does the sub-cable HAVE to be 10m?

    I've got a nearly-new silver 9m IXOS sub-cable going spare.

    If you are interested, I'll confirm exact model and work out a price.

    Don’t feel to bad Burar the What Hi-Fi Awards are out today and you may see some good cable in there also re-read my above post you can get the cable just the right length you want.

    Oh and I may be wrong but I think some one has broke the forum rules for trading in the wrong section.
