Default Re: How much difference do you think cables makes in the audio quality of your system

This is a little off topic but I thought I should chime in because my experience has been different than 90+ % of you. It is in reguard to hdmi cables. I have a 60a3000 and a ps3. I was using a $10.00 walk in basket special I got at fry`s. The picture was outstanding but digitized to some degree when a fast action sceen happened. (This is not a plug just my experience). I got on monsters web site and found the m1000 for an outrageous price. Knowing I could return it to BB since I bought it online through them......I picked one up. The digitizing is gone! The picture is absolutely the same as far as I can tell. But digitizing is gone! I`ll be keeping that cable needless to say.

I run several M1000 HDMI cables, I like the newer ones as the connector is smaller and seems to offer less stress to the interface. Very good cables for longer runs especially.

I just bought the 4 foot cable and I really am amazed at the difference based on everything that I have read in this forum.

$10 vs $170 cable. I'm glad the $170 cable won! For someone who was just using the cable from the PS3 to TV I generally don't suggest $170 cable solutions.

The Better Cables Silver Serpent HDMI units are imho the best HDMI cables for the money. Sorry I didn't suggest them before, but I figured someone who bought a $10 cable likely wouldn't spend 10 times that. I was wrong. Sorry for not suggesting them.

When someone can prove to me in a double blind test that well-made inexpensive speaker wires and interconnects sound identifiably different I will change my scientific opinion. I don't believe in subjectivism, or else I'd believe the world is flat:-)

Now it is possible with very difficult loads (meaning very low speaker impedances below 2 ohms) it is possible. Buitwhy would would someone buy very difficult loads for their speaker system?
