This.

 

The audio signal still has to flow through all the cheap components and cheap solder in its path.

I'd say that's a little hyperbolic.  Cables won't imbue your music or audio with magical properties, but something like the Blue Jeans RCA compared to an umarked $2 cable from an anonymous Chinese factory - I'd say there's a bit of difference, and measurements of their electrical properties certainly reflect that.  Do I see a whole lot of reason to spend MORE than you would on the Blue Jeans?  No.  But if you have solid components and want to rest easy knowing your signal is unmolested by poor design, pick some up.  Or don't.  Just dig the tunes!

Get the bluejeans cable. Good quality and reasonable price.

Much Thanks.

Not to mention they are made to order in America from Belden (also American) cable, if you're from the USA and into that.

I second the Bluejeans Cable recommendation, very good cables and very good prices as well.

Thanks for the cable recommendations. Sounds like Bluejeans is the way to go.

tongue_smile.gif um, they indeed do something, because, if you don't have them, there would be no sound at all...wink_face.gif

 

But on a serious note, getting a good quality cable is important, this does not mean more expensive, just good quality.

Neither will trolling...

will the hybrid Ragnarok have the same power output into the speaker outputs (100 watts into 4 ohms) that the solid state ragnraok does ?

When is it trolling? He was responding to a specific question about whether it's worth it to pay extra for cables.

 

This is just my two cents, but it seems like anytime someone expresses their opinion about cables on here where they're a non-believer they're automatically trolling. If they're a cable believer they're seen as sharing their experiences because cables are SO subjective nobody will tell them they're full of BS. Aren't double standards fun?

Pretty sure Jason just added $50 to the MSRP of the hybrid statement amp by you asking that question! tongue_smile.gif

He should just go ahead and rename the statement amp as Voldemort.

It was a joke about "the name we shall not mention."
