14 bit color in a Monster Cable?

by Mdnx02 / September 26, 2010 7:05 AM PDT

I'm not sure what this means? Does this mean that the cable allows more color transfer than a standard HDMI Cable? It says regular HDMI Cables allow up to 10-bit color but this Monster cable allows up to 14-bit...

Also, one other question. Should I use this cable from my PS3 to my Home Theater Receiver, or from the Home Theater Receiver to the TV?

Light bulbs you shouldn't buy

There are plenty of dimmable LED light bulbs, but make sure you don't buy the ones that flicker when you dial them down.
