Cables for your Home Theater

Cables for your Home Theater   

Lights, camera, action – who doesn’t love a good movie? Trips to the local theater for a summer blockbuster or a pulse-pounding horror flick are as American as baseball and apple pie. But with advanced technology available for home theater systems, many people are choosing to build their own in-house movie theater. Many reasons explain the shift toward home theaters.

  • The DIY pride factor – building your own system brings a sense of achievement.
  • The convenience factor – why drive to the theater when there’s one in the next room?
  • The price factor – have you seen the prices for movie theater popcorn? Yeah, we think they’re outrageous as well!

A crucial component for any home theater is the cable system. The right cables for your home theater ensure top-quality audio and video is delivered – and, after all, audio/video cables are what make any movie unforgettable. You could have the best big-screen TV on the market, or superior surround speakers – but without proper cables in place, your home theater would get more than a few thumbs down. With Primus Cable, you’ll enjoy a great selection of home theater cables, all at exceptional prices.

A recent advancement in home theater cables is HDMI cable. HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) cables are the replacement for older, analog video streams. HDMI’s blazing fast digital characteristics allow video and audio data to be transferred from a source device to a home theater’s digital television, projector or surround speaker system. With its quick connectivity and reliable performance, HDMI cables are essential for any home theater experience.

Choosing the Right Video Cables

With the wide variety of home theater technology that has become available over the last ten years—RPTV, Plasma TV, LED, LCD, amongst others—it is more important than ever to choose the right audio and video cables to connect your home theater. We understand, it is not always easy to know which ones to get and where to get high quality cables. Here is a little information on choosing the right video cables.

HDMI Audio or Video Cables

The audio/video industry is changing, and HDMI is at the front of home theater connectivity. HDMI is the best choice. What is HDMI? HDMI is acronym for High-Definition Multimedia Interface, and it transmits high quality audio and video signal over a single cable. HDMI cables are made to hand 1080p resolution at 60 frames per second and 24-bit audio at 192KHz. The signal remains in digital form, protecting it from audio and video signal interference and signal loss. Because it is in digital form, lengths under six feet will usually work with the same great quality. Just make sure it is not defective, and buy from a reputable company (like us). For anything over six feet, you’re definitely going to want high quality (maybe more expensive) cable. Many companies sell these types of cables. Our HDMI cables are excellent. And with our help, you’re going to get the best bang for your buck.

Component Cables

Whether you are looking for high definition or standard definition, component cables are a great solution. Component cables provide HD connection (and standard definition) between devices such as your Blu-Ray to TV. While component cables have hi-definition capabilities, they don’t carry the same audio quality (35Mhz) as HDMI. When getting composite cables, you will need to get the audio cables as well. With some component cables, audio cables are included.

Make sure your cables are hi-definition capable. Use shorter cables with lower gauge cable size to prevent signal interference and signal loss. Get cable that is rated at 75 +/- 1.5 Ohms. Also, many of us may wonder if gold-plating really matters. Why yes, it does. While non-gold plated cables are okay, in order to ensure quality, it is better to get the gold-plated component cables. Component cable inputs are on most audio and video products, such as DVD, Blu-Ray, and HDTV. If you’re looking for some new, high caliber component cables, we carry them. (continue reading…)
