Choosing the right type of audio video cable is very important for better sound and picture quality. To get most out of you components you should always use high-quality connections between your high-end gears. Think it this way: if you own a high speed high performance car, you would not outfit it with low end tires. Low quality tires will lead to poor handling, increased noise and insufficient traction. In a similar context if you get a high definition audio/video gear and plug it in with poor quality cables, you could end up throttling you system’s performance and thereby loosing all the benefits of buying a high-performance system.
Low quality and poorly made cables can let noise and various surrounding interferences to compromise the signals coming from your source components, thus resulting in a sub par listening or viewing experience. Such cables are also not built to last for long and generally won’t give you the best-quality connection. And of course some free cables may simply be too long or too short for your setup, making them less than ideal for your set up. Leslie has some nice tips on this.
In my opinion one should replace the free “in-the-box” cables with higher-quality audio video cables. Buying a step or two up from the cheapest quality cables, can really make a difference when you are assembling an expensive high end audio/video system. You’ll enjoy more realistic sound and a clearer picture when your system is not throttled and hampered by weak links. There are many websites over the internets that offer great deals on audio video cables. You just need to choose the right type of connection for your system and experience the difference altogether.
