I have one of Mark Grant's rca-rca component cables directly linking my DVD to TV. The signal quality is excellent. I'm pondering over an XBox 360 so will possibly use my 3805 to handle the component switching. BUT: This cable is a real monster to wrestle into position without imposing too much terminal strain on equipment. It took a lot of time and effort to 'strap up' the cable in it's current configuration (and it's still not ideal). I can see the amp terminations move when I've tried it; it also flexes the TV's 'input' board. This is due not only to the cable's weight, but the shortness of the individual leads beyond the outer sheath, especially when they have to turn 90 degrees to mate up with equipment (if you see what I mean). Can anyone recommend a comparable quality alternative (not crazily-priced esoteric stuff) that is more equipment friendly? Thanks in advance.
