better than hoped for

I realized my weak link for blue ray concerts was my entry level vizio cable. Strong bass was missing with the Metallica Magnetic concert among others. With the Pangea not only did I get the strong bass I was missing but also greatly improved high frequencies. Color also was better although I am still running another brand entry level to my Samsung HDTV for video only. Lately Ive upgraded my system with a Martin Logan sub, NAD cd w/ Kimber Kable connects, and Audio Quest speaker cable. All have been well worth the modest expense. Its also interesting to read that my home theater receiver is an entry level Dennon.

Big upgrade

I recently replaced stock HDMI cables feeding a Sony Blue Ray player and DIRECTV receiver into a new 60 inch Samsung LED display with these Pangea cables and am kicking myself for not doing so sooner. I have always been fairly skeptical of snake oil claims made by many manufacturers and video/audiophiles, but the difference in performance with these HDMIs was immediately noticeable. Color rendition is more vibrant and natural, and the picture is simply sharper and smoother, if that makes any sense. Though not a 3D television, the already impressive depth of field is further improved. I use audio outs from both devices to a 2-channel preamp so cannot directly attest to any improvements in audio performance but can only surmise the same results are to be had. Criticisms? No, but I guess I could say the cables are thick and rather stiff and thus not as easily managed as others, but thats about it. I added these at the same time as a Furman PST8D power strip/conditioner - see my review for that product - and believe that is equally responsible for the overall performance upgrade. The Furman and Pangea products provide excellent value in my book, they may not be the most glamorous elements of your system, but theyll give you some of the best results. Highly recommended.
