Guys, I personally believe in cables, but not unobtanium ones that costs 8000$. For me that is more than absurd.
However, I do believe in differences cables could bring to your system, bad or good. I have recently found out that even USB cables make a difference. Yeah...you heard me...usb cables. Bash me all you want, I do not care. All that I know is that I found a really cheap USB cable that really goes well with my system.
The usb cable costs 70$ or something like that. I gave it to a friend of mine who tested it along the stock, audioquest coffee (that has is 6x pricier) and wireworld starlight red (twice the cost). He liked my cable the most , even over the 6x times pricier AudioQuest coffee. He also did blind tests with them and concluded the same.
Before testing it and finding this, I thought usb cables were bs, but now I am sure that they can bring differences. However, I personally do not believe in very expensive cables.
Yeah, you're gonna have to post some blind testing evidence if you're making a claim like that in this subforum.
The only way a USB cable could make a difference is if it had some sort of DSP chip in it. But that's a silly place to use a DSP at, you could just do it for free software side.
