I liked that article, because it shows both positions over the cable issue, and clearly states what are expert's most common opinions about cables.
And to DarkAngel: don't worry, in a few days you will know more about the cables I use and some practical experiences over cables. And you are right on considering that Czilla9000 is some kind of pal to me, in the sense that he wants to know a little more about the facts behind this cable issue. You know, I wasn't born thinking that cables didn't make a difference.
I'd follow Czilla's recomendations about how to spend your money. Speakers and headphones ALWAYS make a difference. Room acoustics make a difference. Amps and cd players sometimes make a difference. Cables make a difference only if are weird built or have defective connectors, or are very bad quality and over long distances.
By the way, I wouldn't say that regular stock interconnects are that bad. May be bad (noticeable noise pickup) if too long.
