First read the "Empors New Cloths" then you will start to understand.
Read the link. Yes The AR cabels are good choice.
"Some guy at Best Buy told me that AudioQuest was the best brand you are losing a lot from using the cheaper brands." Realy! he didn't push Mon$ter cables???
With no offence to the fourm members who work for BB, CC, Sears,etc. The sad part is the most sales people in big box stores done know thier elbows from a hole in the ground, I worked at FRY's it was no different. The fourm members who work at the Big box stores sadly are the excption, they are in the miniorty.
A lot of thoes fancy high priced cables have massive markups. At Fry's we were told that there are 49 points on MC products. On a $100 cable the store made $49 profit. John
Can anyone answer what is the real deal with cables? Does the more you spend get you anything? I just bought some HDMI cables for my PLasma TV that were Acoustic Research Performance Series (12ft for about $30).
But I see other cables running up to 4 times that much for 12ft? Some guy at Best Buy told me that AudioQuest was the best brand you are losing a lot from using the cheaper brands. Not sure what to think.
