My System Specs


I think a distinction has to be made between a dollar store cable and a reasonably priced non-monster cable.

Would you be able to see a difference between a $1 cable and a $150 one? Possibly, if the ultra cheap one wasn't shielded at all, and you were getting some form of interference.

Would you see a difference between a $20 and a $150 one? I highly doubt it, unless the $20 cable was in reality the same non-shielded $1 cable with a higher markup.
