    This unit is well built, installed quickly and works great with excellent image quality on all outputs. Cables from source to this unit are 25 feet and from this unit to the TVs is another 25 feet.

    Fast Shipping, Great Product
    ORLANDO -- west bridgewater, MA   8/12/2007
    Great product, I was already splitting the signal using y cables. When I connected the distribution amp instead it significantly improved the picture it was bright and sharp. Now I plan on feeding 4 different sets with a excellent signal. Thanks for the great product.
