    Are these cables any good for hooking up my DV88+ to Panny plasma?

    Or anyone recommend others?

    I have a 3.5m Lektropaks Prolink Phono-> BNC component for JS converter to panny plasma with BNC board. Have to say it's one of the best looking and well-constructed cables I've ever seen. 3 independent well separated cables with bulletproof connectors. As to picture quality, I've never tried anything else, so have no objective data, but it seems pretty good to me. DVD pictures stunning with no detectable flicker or edge effects. Sky not so good, but then that's a source problem :(.

    And of course there is the advantage of being able to buy to the exact length you require for relatively reasonable money (the above cost me £50ish, IIRC).

    When I reorganise myself so I have prog scan DVD and component switching amp, I'll definitely be buying Lektropaks again.

    I ain't got the cable you describe, but I am happy to recommend lektropaks as a good supplier of quality cables.


    I use their cables (speaker, scart-phono, s-video, etc.).

    I have the component Lektropacks: 4m, RCA to BNC connecting a DV88+ to a Pioneer MXE, using PAL and NTSC Prog Scan.

    They are superb. Build quality is just stunning.

    when ordering, make sure they understand the direction of the signal (normally from RCA to BNC).

    Agree. I use a 10m component cable from Lektropacks. Price was reasonable, delivery was quick, build quality excellent and the results are indistinguishable (on my projector) from those obtained with a 1.5m cable.

    I know I've already had my turn :rolleyes: but the quality v price ratio for Lektropaks is better than the competition.

    Lektropaks ain't as big as IXOS, and Monster Cable, but they are fast at delivery, and can make custom cables.
