    I need a component cable to hook my amp up to my plasma, only need a 1m cable

    I've found a few options on eBay

    Monster THX V100 1m - £17
    IXOS XFV04 1m - around £20
    Van Damme 1m - around £20
    QED P-CV1 1m - not sure maybe £30

    and in B and Q I spotted a Thor one for £20

    So what my best option? :thumbsup:

    The VDC or IXOS will be fine. I doubt the QED would offer any increase in performance for the additional outlay. I wouldn't buy Monster out of principle as they're over-hyped, over-priced tat. I got a 1m component cable from Currys not that long ago and it's fine and only cost me a tenner. The 304 (red) is the better Ixos cable, some online retailers often have it on special so have a look for it over the silver 104 (I think) cable. There is also the powerbuy section above or bluejeanscables.co.uk.

    check the powerbuys above or bluejeanscables. I'm sure the IXOS would be fine. I also got a 5m component cable from cableuniverse pretty cheap and it is perfect.
