If you’re anything like me you balk at the idea of paying more than $50 for a cable that cost about $2 to make. It’s ridiculous. All the testing suggests that cheap cables are as effective as “gold plated” cables for carrying your data.
I’ve been looking for a cheap Optical audio cable to go with my cheap HDMI cables picked up via a nice discount online vendor on a special. This cheap online vendor – Oznetics – has cables at reasonable prices all year round – if by reasonable you mean under $20 including delivery. And currently has a great special on HDMI cables to boot.
They also sell a bunch of home automation stuff. Which is what I’d be doing if:
a) I owned my own house, or
b) We weren’t saving all our spare change for college.
Optical audio here we come…
