    Hello everyone,

    I know that the question of cabling is a very controversial one. I did hear somewhere that around 10% of the cost of the system should be spent on cabling. I thought I would post what system I have and what cables I use just to see if people have any comments and improvements I could make in the cabling. I know that improvements can be made in my system!!

    My system compromises of the following:

    Toshiba 28ZD26B television
    Sony dav-s550 all in one system
    Camridge audio DAB300 digital radio
    Pioneer freeview box DBRTF100

    The connections are as follows:

    Freeview > TV = Cambridge audio premium scart

    Cinema system > TV = Component compromising of 3 digital coaxial cables (cambridge)

    Freeview > Cinema system = Optical digital cable (bought from sevenoaks)

    Digital radio > Cinema system = Cambridge audio pacific phonos

    When I get the chance I'll have a look at what make the optical cable is. As you can probably guess most of my cables are from richer sounds. They persuaded me that 3 coaxial cables would do the job for the component connection. However I was eyeing the mark grant cables and wondered if I would see any improvement?

    Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated.

    James :)

    3 digital cables will probably do a better job than a cheap component cable. The cables you've got look like a perfect match for the rest of your system. :)
