If you are one that likes consuming content from OTT services or has a collection of movies on blu-ray then you probably have a sweet home theatre setup or at least have a TV or a projector hooked up to a nice soundbar. Either way, if you are a home theatre enthusiast, or just have a lot of gadgets connected to your TV or soundbar, you know how important it is to have some spare cables like HDMI, aux, optical and more. Having cables in spare always helps as it's the first thing you check if things aren’t working. So if you are looking to stock up on some ever-important cables, then we have some deals that you can check out on Amazon Prime Day sale.
Sure, when you purchase some gadgets like a gaming console or a Blu-ray player, you get an HDMI cable in the box. But some soundbars and set-top-boxes don't come with an HDMI cable in the box letting you fend for one yourself. On the Prime Day sale you can get a bunch of HDMI cables at a discount, so if you were looking to stock up on them, then now is a good time as any to consider purchasing a few spare ones. You can get HDMI cables which are as short as 3 feet and as long as 100 feet based on your requirement. These HDMI cables are capable of outputting 4K at 60Hz so they will work well with your 4K, FHD and even HD ready TVs.
The headphones jack may be dead on smartphones but that doesn’t mean the good old 3.5mm is lost forever. If you have an AV receiver, a pair of budget studio monitors or even a soundbar, chances are the 3.5mm port is there on these devices and can be used to connect to your TV. budget TVs still retain the 3.5mm port and you will need a 3.5mm cable to connect your budget TV to the soundbar. Usually, budget soundbars and speakers do come with a 3.5mm cable in the box but in case they don't, it doesn’t hurt to have a few spare.
Another cable that should be a part of any home theatre enthusiasts cable collection is a coaxial cable. This cable is handy when you need to connect devices like HDTVs, DVRs, cable/satellite boxes, Blu-Ray/DVD players, and more. It isn’t the most common connectivity cable needed in most common entertainment setups, but those that have compatible devices will know the benefits of having a coaxial cable handy.
Last but not least we have the good old Optical Audio Toslink Cable. The Optical port is found on most modern TVs, soundbars and home theatres available in the market, and is the second-best option to use after HDMI ARC to pass audio from your TV to the sound system. Some home theatres and soundbars do give users the optical cable in the box, but it's always handy to have one in spare. You can get them in 3.3 feet going up to 25 feet in length based on your requirement.
