    Hi guys,

    Having now done my research I know what I need connector wise and was wondering if anyone had ordered from "Cable Universe" which has a banner on this page? Their prices seem ridiculously cheap for some items and I know that you shouldn't scrimp on the quality of the connectors eg RGB SCart £4. So are they cheap but good or cheap and cheap!?

    Cheers,

    Ig

    Igwiz,

    I have and found there gear to be excellent :smashin: . I've had the 'premium' RGB scart, S-video cables and Audio interconnects - all appear well made with decent cables and connectors and provide perfectly reasonable quality to my eyes / ears - especially at the price they sell them. I couldn't tell any difference in PQ between a £30 QED scart and the £8 version they sell (infact the £8 felt better put together) and I probably fell for the 'premium' marketing tag there - I bet the £4 is excellent too.

    Cheers,
    Steve.

    I've used them twice - the gear turned-up next day on both occasions.

    I bought a subwoofer cable, component video leads and scart leads.

    I'm very impressed by all the cables they've sent. They are all good quality - the scarts made a vast improvement to the flimsy leads I was given when NTL installed by cable TV.

    The component leads are very heavy - and I think they were £28 for two inc VAT and delivery.

    I bought them on the basis that I could throw them away if the quality was poor, but no need to do that!

    All-in-all an excellent supplier.

    I'm with you there. Excellent customer service, next day delivery and good quality. I have the Component lead and cannot fault it.
    Love someone to compare this with a more expensive cable and post the results.
