If you don't hear a difference with this in line, you are blessed as you have no need to buy expensive audio gear! As for your cable comment, many feel strongly on both sides of this coin. Having a box that is three feet square and at least two feet tall of JUST cable, I can say I've been through my share and cables DO make a difference, even with digital, and as HDMI is digital audio and video, they do make a difference, both in picture and audio performance to my eyes and ears. I use some Monoprice and Blue Jeans cables, but not in my reference rig where the cables really can show themselves.

And you are a snake oil salesman for who?

I don't sell snakes, though I used to breed Dumarils Boa's a long time ago...

I won't bother to try to sway thopse that are sure cables don't make a difference anymore, it is an age old argument in this hobby, with strong support on both sides, at all levels too.

I for one DO find change with cables, so I use the ones that make my system sound best to me, you should do the same, at what ever level that is.

This type of name calling is completely uncalled for. Although many equipment manufactures, including cable makers, appear to be sponsors of this site, I do not believe that Ken or anyone else associated with this site is trying to sell "snake oil". He happens to be wrong on this one point (at least when it comes to digital cables). Whenever stating an opinion, I for one, try to explain my reasons, and whenever possible, provide links to sources and additional information that I think other forum member may find informative or interesting WITHOUT QUESTIONING THE INTEGRITY OF ANY WHO MAY NOT AGREE.

Rex,

You're absolutely correct! This is the type of crap common to the AVS forum and because of it I visit them less often.

Well then, happy placebo effect to you and enjoy your overpriced cables that do nothing more than the more reasonable priced ones. I do not intend to burst your bubble.

There was no name calling, just asking a valid question.
