Digital is digital. Copper is copper. Gold is gold (on the connectors). Many tests and results from PCMag, PCWorld, and AV sites prove that the "expensive", (read Monster) cables are hype.
I recently purchased a new Panasonic VIERA TX-P46S20B plus a B & W Zeppelin and an AppleTV (2nd Generation). I have all three components but I do not know what cabling would be the best to get the most out of all my three devices.
I was going to go with a "Monster? HDMI 1200HDex Ultimate High Speed 15.8 Gbps HDMI Cable" to connect my Apple TV to my new Full HD 1080p Flat Screen TV and use a "Duronic 3M TOSLINK Goldspec High Resolution Professional Digital Optical TOSlink Cable - 24K Gold Casing" to connect the B & W Zeppelin to the TV for audio output boost.
Would that be a good setup... ? or should I be doing it differently and using different, more optimum cabling..?
I'm also waiting on a new software update called aTVFlash Black that will turn my new AppleTV into more of an online experience (Firefox) plus it will help to support other video formats outside of Apple's Eco System, including possible apps....
Any comments or advice most welcome.
