    Good HDMI Cable?

    Hi All,

    Just wondering if anyone knows a good HDMI cable. Dont need something over-priced like 100GBP etc.

    Does B&O have a preferred brand/make?

    There was a test  of HDMI cables on the gadget show a while back.

    They reckoned the you couldn't tell the difference in picture quality between cheap and very expensive leads!

    Hi Fil,

    I think I saw that one actually! Ok, cheap and dodgy it is then :)

    I would always get one with decent quality plugs for any cable. If B&O supply one, it should be fine. Don't bother with unidirectional silver ones etc! Laughing

    Inexpensive yet well put together will do nicely -- no need at all to spend a lot of money on HDMI cables (though there are various being offered at quite amazing prices.)

    Cables is an area where I'm actually quite impressed with B&O. Given the prevailing fashion in audiophile circles, B&O could have made a mint by creating superexpensive cables. But their audio engineers know what's required, and see no need to exaggerate dimensions and capabilities.

    very true. I actually have a spare mac mini, but my dad wants it.

    Why would one be better than apple tv for example, my imac is in the sam room? i guess i could browse the net from my tv with the mac mini...
