Cables

James Randi challenges the audiophiles on the supposedly great speaker cables that retail at … holy shit … $7250?!?!

I fought the cable battle myself. When I bought my blu-ray player, Best Buy tried to sell me $100 HDMI cables. I went to Amazon and bought one for thirty cents. It works great. And if it breaks, I can use the money I saved to buy 300 replacements.

    It’s especially bogus in the case of HDMI (and other digital) cables. At least with analog cables you can make the case that better cables might introduce less noise, but the BER on even a cheap digital cable is going to be well below any level that would affect the final picture or audio.
