MX Cables in Bangalore


Hello Guys,

I've bought this Onkyo 5105 for more than a week now and yet not managed to set the system up completely.

I'm going to need some extra cable for the sourround speakers. The one that has come with the system are 22 AWG and I guess it should be good, but the length they have provided is around 9Mtr. I may need around 12-14Mtr for one of the two sourround speakers and that may require to buy a seperate cable running around 12-14Mtr, this left me thinking whether I should go for some high end cable like 16 or 14 AWG cables for both the sourround speakers (that 22 AWG should be good for my front and center speaker - my personal view).

Can anyone please let me know whether going for a better AWG for sourround speakers (which is going to run around 9Mtr right one and 14Mtr left one) is a good idea!! if so, I understand that the MX has got the decent quality OFC cable that I can buy.

I had been to SP road and saw MX catalogue at one shop where the 16 AWG was around Rs. 42xx and 12 AWG was around Rs 45xx for 100 Mtr roll. The shop guy told me that they sell only 100Mtr rolls and do not sell loose. Can anyone tell me where can I get the Mx cable in Bangalore in loose quantity per my requirement and I dont need 100Mtr for sure.

I'm also looking for a decent HDMI cable, Does the one by Mx do a decent job here? I will be using it either from my AVR to TV or from my Xbox to AVR.
Thanks in advance
Ketan

Re: MX Cables in Bangalore

You don't need expensive cables at all. Its all snake oil when you look at pricing for cables esp. in India. The guage is a bit too low. I would go atleast 16 or 14AWG if you can all around.

Lots of cheap options even if buying directly from Amazon.com and adding customs duties to the purchase

There is a shop in sp road that is just for cables. I think its called cabletron or something. Its about half way thru sp road and is on right hand side. That guy sells all sorts of cables, any length, any gauge, branded and unbranded.

Re: MX Cables in Bangalore

hi ketan!
22 awg is too low for speaker cables. u should go for 14 or 16 awg max. you may talk to Abhishek of audio dynamics (9845881387). one of our forum members once bought some good taiwanese cables from him and seems to be satisfied.

Re: MX Cables in Bangalore

You have a PM on HDMI. 22 is way low go for 14 as you don't change cables often.

Re: MX Cables in Bangalore

@doors666

I had been to SP road and I guess I did find a shop that sells all types of cable (Cabletron or something), he was not aware of the MX cable at all and was offering some 18AWG imported cable which was very costly too.

@krauss

Do you know exactly which cable (14 AWG?) you have bought from Abhishek? if you can tell me the spec and price, that will be good.

@Ram
Do you still have those HDMI left with you?

Re: MX Cables in Bangalore

Hi,

Doors Sanson guys are just the dealers for the MX and have an exclusive outlet thats it ! they are not the Distributors !! The MX Distributor is sitting some place else and they supply materials to this Sanson !!

Ketan Have you finally got some cable or not ?? if not try with Radiotronics on the Right hand side of the lane in SP Road,They are basically into PA stuff but have some decent imported speaker cables which are cheap !

Another place to check out would be,A shop inside the lane on the first right turn diagonally opposite to OM Electronics ! its on the left hand side (just a couple steps inside this lane) they have some decent speaker cables too ! check them out !

If you are unable to get it please do PM me so that I can try to help !!

Regards.

Re: MX Cables in Bangalore

Hi,

Buddy Am sorry if I have given any wrong impressions to you ! But the is the truth ! they may have given a wrong idea or misrepresented themselves !

Sanson Electronics is not the official Distributors for Karnataka ! They are just Exclusive Mx retail outlet !

I have dealt with them and also the official distributors,so I know very well ! Infact I know SP Road in & out !

Please don't take it in the wrong way,Am not trying prove anything here !

Off the topic,Ketan please excuse me if I have intruded on to your thread !

I have a 12Awg Speaker Cable Full Roll (100Mtrs) which I wish to sell !! Its made in USA and is of Blue colour !I bought this sometime back for some DIY project but never used it ! Am expecting 26K for the Roll (100Mtrs)!






If anyone is interested please PM me for further............


Regards.
