Help me decide between three USB A-B cables.

    Hey folks!
    I'd like to upgrade my modi 2 cable to a better one.
    What's the difference between those three cables and will there even be a difference at all at the sound quality?
    I am running Magni 3 and Modi 2 stack.
    Here are the cables:

    Aliexpress cable is well regarded you should definety pick it. It sound quiet, melodic, organic.

    Thank you for the reply.
    The only thing that worries me is that it doesn't have reviews on ali (feedback).

    Okay thanks!
    I will order it on the 11.11
    This might be a little off topic, but do you know by any chance a good HDMI cable that can somewhat be flexible and high quality?
    All the cables i bought are very thick and can't bend much, and then start malfunctioning after just a few months.

    Sorry i dont know about hdmi. Many Usb, rca cables, power cables are made with solid metals so they are not flexible. Why solid metals used?
    Its because 1. Its cheaper. 2. Such cables dont require much flexibility because they stay in 1 place when all set and done. 3. Solid metals is better conductors.
    If you need flexibility you should go for multicore cables. These cables have lot of small wires inside so it can flex and bend 1000s of times. Multicore cables is worse conductors, unless 1 buys litz type cable which are as good as Solid cable, but more expensive.
    Multicore copper oxidise and become worse overtime, so most of manufacturers silver plate them to avoid oxidation. Litz cables dont need plating thou.

    Okay gotcha.
    The monitor is connected to a vesa and so is being moved pretty often.
    For example when i am studying, I move everything out of my line of sight so it doesn't distract me.
    I will look into the Litz cables, cheers.
