Looking For S-video/optical Cable, Help!
Posted 25 July 2005 - 08:19 AM
I recently bought a new sound system with DD and optical out and want to connect my xbox to it.
I'm looking for a good s-video cable with optical (or even coaxial) digital out.
Was looking at monster cables, but couldnt figure out if the s-video model has an option for optical (which is sold seperatly).
I only want the best (which i guess is monster cable?)

Well, i've figured this whole thing out (finally).
All xbox monster cables come with an option to connect the optical cable, but you do need the xbox version of the optical cable and not the usuall one (xbox version has an adapter you need).
In my opinion, biggest diff is between RCA and s-video/component.So yes, if money is no issue, component is the best, but I honestly dont think you will see a big enough diff between s-video and component to make it worth you while.
As for me, im going to buy the monster s-video and optical cables for the xbox, and be done with it. should be good enough.
Yes, I have a component connection in my tv, but since i am connecting everything to my receiver, i need s-video or RCA.
Hope i helped, and thanks for all who wrote here.

Optical is nothing but hype.

I don't have a High definition TV, so I wouldn't know that much about the XBOX HD cables.
