    Having just bought a DV88+ i want to get the best out of it so what i'm looking for is some cable advice.

    What i have now -

    For CD playback - Chord Siren interconnects.
    For digital to receiver - QED SR75 Digital Coaxial.
    Component to TV - Profigold.

    I think it's only really the component cables i need to upgrade to use with my Toshiba 42" RPTV.

    Are Transparent Cable products available in the U.K.?

    I use their Premium component cable with my DV88+ and their entry-level High-Perf. component cable with my Sat/OTA set top box. The Premium cable really shines with the DV88+, but I warn you it's not cheap (MSRP $400 US).

    Hello JIT

    I also use component into my Tosh 46 RPTV.
    Have been using 3 x Ecosse digital lead (The Producer?) 75ohm cable
    costs about £20 for one.

    also check out Mark Grant.

    Ecosse with my new (slightly used) DV27 producing terrific PQ.

    Cheers

    Forgot about Mark Grant cables so may try them.

    Have you picked up your DV27 yet?

    Hi JIT

    got DV27 today by courier from Audio Excellence in Bristol.
    was a steal at £725!

    Amazing PQ and audio- only tried it for about an hour so far- well chuffed!

    88+ going well?

    Not got it set up properly yet as i'm moving things about a bit but it certainly gives an excellent picture on a 28" widescreen so hoping once connected up to my RPTV it is just as good.

    As for CD's i've still to do a proper comparison with my Sony CDP-XB930 CD player but it sounds good anyhow - i don't think my Denon 1803 receiver is really good enough to match with the Arcam so another upgrade may be approaching - probably a Denon 3805.
