Default Where to buy high quality coax splitters

Does anyone have a good suggestion on where to buy high quality coax splitters. I need a 1-->3 splitter for my media closet and didn't want to pick up what they have at Walmart/Lowes/etc.

Thanks

Just order 25' HDMI and 25' Toslink.

For a 1-3 or 3-way splitter, there are several types. There are ones that handle more freq range, take off less signal loss. Some are balanced, same loss from each output. Some are un-balanced, each output takes different loss. Unbalanced splitters allow you to direct where you need the most signal. If you have any kind of modem, always best to place modem on output that that least amount of loss.

next time you see a cable guy ask him for some splitters, he should be more then happy to give them to you. what usually happens is someone goes, buys and installs some cheap radio shack splitter and the cable guy ends up going to your house and throwing it away anyways! you'll save yourself the time and money, get it for free and your guaranteed to get the right splitter for your needs!

Agreed and they are also the best people to get a signal amplifier from. I tried many different units from several suppliers and only the Cable Co's unit worked properly without actually degrading signals.
