Cables bring out the worst in us is what I have found which is unfortunate. But the thing that I find most troubling is many times the loudest voices against what a cable can do have never really tried something that is above a few hundred dollars at best if any at all. They make their comments solely because they can't wrap their head around how it is possible for a short cable to make any difference sonically. In that I'm in complete agreement as I don't understand it either but do test then comment not comment without testing or worse yet test cheap cables only. My experience has been they do even on the lower end of a cable product line and just get better as you move up as long as your system can keep up.
