My personal experience so far suggests I cannot hear any difference between a cheap USB cable and an audiophile grade cable. I can however appreciate quality analog cable with RCA connections. Bad cable introduces noise which is audible.

Gear mentioned in this thread:
They can't because it isn't. The entire "audio cable" industry exists on the power of suggestion. You think for $200.....$300......$500 it has to sound better................therefore it sounds better.
You are preaching to the wrong guy my friend.
I have this one as well and agree its a better option than a barebones usb cable.
