That would be hit or miss. You can try a really good z series monster cable. But how good is the TV?

The quality of the cable will probably not make a huge difference with this set, but it might be worth your time to buy a decently-shielded cable if you don't have one already (i.e. not the flimsy stuff that came packaged with your DVD player). Something from Acoustic Research will be good quality but affordable.

I suggest you buy this disc and it will help you get started:

Nope. Don't waste your money. Unless you use a tattered up frayed cable it'll make minimal difference.

An Acoustic Research composite video cable costs about $15. They sell them at Best Buy.
