Re: How much difference do you think cables makes in the audio quality of your system
Cables matter. A LOT. For both audio and video.
You don't want to blow your whole budget for your theater on cables however you also don't want to string some shoddy HDMI cable 200 feet from your rack to your projector to realize it constantly cuts out.
For audio, you do the taste test. Somebody like a top local dealer or the Cable Company based in PA can send you some cables to try. Do some testing and you will hear the difference. Much like with wine - if you don't hear the difference (or taste the difference) than DO NOT invest. When you do hear the difference make the investment.
