Re: How much difference do you think cables makes in the audio quality of your system
I agree with Jerry. Try before you buy. There is a point of diminishing returns on cable sound and price. And, keep in mind if you upgrade you equipment later the cable you have now may not sound good with the new equipment. So you will be selling or trading your cables at drastically reduced prices.
An indirect cheap way to improve the sound of your system is to run a dedicated 20 amp line to your system. I didn't believe it until I made the change. And, it's something you can do yourself, just be careful not to electrocute yourself.
