High Quality Cable in India


I was wondering where in India (preferably Mumbai) can i buy high quality audio video cable. My home entertainment room is almost reaching completion, however my PC is a little further away from my amplifier. I was looking for atleast 10ft of both Toslink Optical cable for audio and component. I need good quality (preferably monster cables). I have some with me, but none of them are long enough.

OT: can we have a consumer electronics section ?

Re: High Quality Cable in India

10ft Optical cable would be difficult to find unless you order it customised, coz most optical cables are usually 2m long max. If your PC and amp supports coax, you can find some very good quality audio cables here.

Re: High Quality Cable in India

Hey thanks for the links ms_mahu
works perfect, just that their prices are too high, exactly double of what you get in the US. Compare it to these links.

$16.99
TVsDepot - Acoustic Research Pro II Series Optical Digital Audio Cable (PR182)

$49.99
ACOUSTIC RESEARCH MS292 MASTER SERIES COMPONENT VIDEO CABLE 12 FT | Accessories4less


OK so I have a few more questions:
1. Considering that my length is almost 10ft and also the fact that I am running all my wires concealed in the walls, the audio cable would be in the same pipe with the component cables. There are also power lines running quite close to them but they are in a different pipe altogether. What would be better in this case to use? Optical cable or coaxial cable?

2. Considering the prices in India, I think I am going to get them form the US only. Which brand do you suggest for both the audio and video cables. Is Monster considered the defacto is quality cables or is there anything better out there?

There should not be any interference if you use the optical cable, according to this article.

How Digital Audio Connections Work > Optical Connections

Belkin is also a quality manufacturer of AV cables.

BELKIN PURE AV AV20000-12 Digital Optical Cable, 12ft, Black - Retail $19.99

Pick up cables from monoprice. Most of the branded stuff have grossly inflated prices.
