    Is this possible? I have just bought all new kit and have always tried to buy reasonable cables in the past for my hc equipment...nothing flash, just stuff from Ixos and QED...but I need a 15metre componant cable to hook up my Sanyo Z2 to a Yamaha RXV650 and wondered if I would get one that was any good for about £100?

    I can afford up to £150 if I push things a bit but if anyone can point me to anywhere on line that are doing good cables and the lowest possible price I would be very gratefull :thumbsup:

    I know :(

    I am already bringing the projector a bit forward to what I wanted so I can get it installed with the screen in the short amount of time I have off work.

    It's not an ideal run length but it looks like I will have to go for it. I have just seen on www.hifistore.co.uk a 15m Audioquest YIQ-A for £97.50.

    It is obviously not a top notch cable but it sounds like it could do the job...any experience?
