Hello
As I often run hd video and very often flac music by cable from my laptop. I always seem to have a few extra meters of many different types of cables that I just kind of spool up behind my stereo stand when not in use. Does anyone of a easy way to roll up the excess cable without to much hassle. Something that is quick, easy & neat.
Cheers

Well, I use tie-wraps/cable ties, course they are not very convenient if you need to pull the cables out often.
For you, I'd suggest something like these velcro cable ties.

If the problem is that you have too many different cables cluttering up the area behind your stereo then you could a spiral wrapping cable raceway. It would wrap all of your cables up into a single bundle and allow you to minimize the clutter.
Or if you just have cables that are too long, you could loop them up and use velcro straps to use up the extra length.

There's also the option of using something like a D-Ring panel, and then just loop the cable back and forth between the posts on it.

Thank you for the replies. Yes the velcro straps of which I have a few work okay. I was just hoping that there might be a magic solution on the market that I had not come across.

Don't think there is a magic solution out there, maybe someone else knows of something.
You could also have a look at Rip-Tie, they have a number of options including velcro, buckles and snaps.

I know that it will be hard to get rid of all cables. But at the moment you can not get top sound without using cable.

Try split-loom tubing, a.k.a. wire loom.

Glen. I have used something similar to split loom before on computer cables and they work very well. In my application they may not work as well. Thank you for the suggestion.

I am sure that leaving them dangling out of speaker ports would effect the bass on your speakers.
