We just recently bought a 1080p/120 hz tv....should I purchase HI SPEED HDMI cables to hook the tv to my Denon a/v receiver and the PS3?
No. There is more marketing nonsense associated with cables in general, and HDMI cables in particular, than in any other area of consumer electronics. The refresh rate of your TV has absolutely nothing to do with the cable used to connect the source.
Cables such as this one from Channel Master will perform every bit as well as any cable available on the market, regardless of price. In fact, heavier cable can put more strain on the HDMI connection, which is not a good thing since the connection is not very sturdy to begin with.
Don't buy into the nonsense being proffered by the, ahem, monsters in the cable business or those who profess to be on a quest for some pinnacle of HDMI cable performance. Buying expensive "esoteric" HDMI cables is simply a waste of money.
The same goes for other digital cables. Digital coaxial audio connections use 75 Ohm cable. A piece of RG6 TV cable with RCA adapters on each end will perform as well as any "digital" cable on the market.
Because my name is on the business, I work hard to make sure you get the best possible shopping experience. I look forward to hearing your comments .
