AV cables connect multimedia capable devices, such as gaming consoles, tablets, and television sets. Therefore, always ensure compatibility with your equipment since connectors vary greatly.

Fibre optic TOSlink cables provides the best quality sound and image reproduction because any outside interference from other electrical devices do not affect them. After that, HDMI cables produce high-definition images and sound in nearly as good quality. For devices that do not have the appropriate connectors, composite cables that contain a device connector and three separate outputs for mono, stereo, and video usually plug into the side of television sets. However, the image and sound quality is nowhere near the quality you get from HDMI or TOSlink. There are HD composites, however, but the television would need the five required input jacks.
