HD Cabling

Cables made of plastic, copper and gold help keep music blasting, videos playing and printers printing throughout your home and the world. Because cables vary significantly in price and description, you might wind up paying more than you have to or choosing a cable that is lower performance than you would anticipate. Let us help you with an overview of the cable types.
Stereo Wire
Speaker wire, also known as speaker cable, consists of two wires surrounded by a covering such as plastic. Used to carry analog signals from audio devices to speakers, these wires fluctuate in price according to length and gauge. The gauge is a numerical measurement unit that reflects a wire's diameter; the higher the gauge number, the thinner the wire. We recommend using lower gauge wire as the length between your audio source and speakers increases. This makes sense because thicker wires can carry more current to distant speakers and feed them more power.

Composite Cables
The Composite Video Cable is the most frequently used and lowest common base in AV audio video cable connection. These cables channel video from one source to another over a single wire. Although composite cables allow you to view video, the video quality is not as good as that obtained using newer technologies such as HDMI. You can recognize one of these cables by examining the color of its plugs. A composite cable has a single yellow RCA plug that carries video and red and white RCA plugs that carry audio.

Component Video
Component video cables are the workhorses of the cabling world. These cables also allow you to connect one video or imaging device to another. Most TVs, for instance, have RCA jacks input jacks that accept input from external devices such as DVD players and video cameras. By splitting a video signal into three components and transferring each component over a separate wire, component cables help you view higher definition video and movies. Look for good quality when purchasing these types of cables as well.

We perform custom runs of all types of cabling through your home of office. 

If your monitor or TV has an HDMI input, you can view better quality images by connecting it to a source using an HDMI cable. HDMI cables transfer complete signals between devices when the cables have no imperfections and adhere to HDMI specifications. These are considered the highest quality direct cables.

Cat 3, Cat 4 and Cat 5 refer to how fast different types of Ethernet cables can transmit data. Your existing Ethernet cable -- which may have come with your computer, might work just fine. However, you may benefit from upgrading your cable to a higher category depending on your needs. Cables with higher Cat values transmit data faster. Three factors to consider when purchasing Ethernet cable: cable speed, cable size and the type of network to which you connect. Shorter cables give you the best speed, while longer ones help you position computer components conveniently. If you need blazing network speed, look at Cat 7 cables that cost a little more but give your system the best performance.
