I personally have handshake issue when was using cable from robert
sinlim.. bcoz of long length cable 8m.. i tot it was due to my Sony PJ.

... Sony recommended not to use more than 5m...
End up,  I use ACTIVE HDMI cable to solve this handshake issue..
If you use TV, shouldnt be a problem coz tv have built in signal amp.

The most mentioned budget speaker cables in this forum is Belden. Personally, i prefer Klotz or Van Der Hul Silver line for the front 3 channels. If ur budget allows, go up to the Jap makes from CANARE or FURUTEC.
Interconnects for coaxial digital, most mentioned is Audioquest.
As for HDMI, lots of members in XP believes in price is true logic, hence the popularity of FIBBR cable. However if your budget is tight, and ur source equipment is too far away from ur screening device, go for version 2.0 HDMI. Typically for 4k image, version 1.4 is enuff.

Unless u r really going for very long run, I dun think need to use fibbr.. redmere should be fine. Imagine the spare length from the 25m cable

Thanks for the replies.
Have a much better idea now.

Anyone knows anything about the electrical wires for the sockets of dedicated electrical line?

You trust it to be authentic?
if u do a search in this forum on FIBBR owners... Perhaps u may discover that they go straight for the source?

Authorised Distributor. You ask a question I give a lobang. If you think is a scam buy from Amazon (probably the same dealer as well). The cable is from wuhan anyway.

Ok this wan no scam
