5 Excellent bit of kit!!Steve8988 | 06/05/2013 | See all Steve8988's reviews (10)I had upgraded from the basic TV input that came with the wii to a component cable a few years ago and noticed a difference in picture quality. When I saw that you could now go to HDMi I decided to give it a go, when it arrived it was as simple as plugging it into the back of the wii, inserting a HDMi cable and off I went. The item itself looks solid with a good build quality and seems well put together as I was concerned from the picture on the listing that it wouldn't be. I can honestly say I am not disappointed the picture is better being both sharper and clearer and the sound transfers very nicely. I have now routed the wii through my Sony HTS-1000 and it sounds excellent as I have put it on surround sound. The upscaling works a treat and is noticeable, the only thing I have not tried is the headphone socket so cannot comment on that. Having gone to this from a component cable it is nice to have less trailing wires behind the tv unit. Overall an excellent bit of kit!!
