    Hi,
    I have ordered Panasonic TX28PS1 TV & Pioneer DCS303 Home cinema system . As far as i know the home cinema system comes will all the cables needed but i wanted to know if i will need a good set of cables for connecting DCS303 to my TV & for the speakers. Can anyone recommend some good cables ? are there any Cable Kits avaliable with all necessary cables in there ? :confused:


    Thanks

    Just wondering how much did your home cinema system cost as it probably isn't necessary. Also check your speaker cables, how do they plug into the speakers and the amplifier end, are they bare wire or something else? If it's something else then it's probably using some proprietary design and thus can't be upgraded.

    Hi

    Rule of thumb is 10% on cables.

    Probably worth getting a decent scart to s-video/2 phono or s-video-svideo and 2 phono -2 phono for picture/sound to tv.

    Speaker cable wouldn't bother changing.

    10 - 20% of budget on cables. If you do choose to upgrade speaker cable, QED Original is decent stuff at £2.50 per metre.
