    Have just entered the exciting world of home entertainment and have started by purchasing a Panasonic TX-32PD30.Now the picture looks fine to me but i'm sure it could be so much better.The coax cable from the aerial is as old as the hills cos its rock hard and all cracked.So is there a better quality coax I could use instead.

    Head down to Homebase and buy some double screened CT100 aerial cable and some NON plasice CO-AX plugs. Ideally do the whole downlead from the aerial. This might be labeled as satellite co-ax rather than CT100

    Gordon,

    I just posted a new thread about Musical Fidelity X Link Cable and I came across this thread on coaxial cable.

    Would you be kind enough to help me with some information? How does it sound with a non MF product say between a source and amp?

    Thank you!

    i would say that you would be better off going to maplins to get that cable.
    £1.00 a metre.
    if you are doing long distances then may i suggest the ct125, also at maplins.

    remember if using CT125 you need to get bigger size F connectors.

    also will need reducers to standard size F size connections

    now all i need is a link
