Noel Lee would disagree, as would Audioquest, and many other high end cable users. They for sure have there place but not in a computer system carrying data over huge runs like 2 meters, but just try to get a HD signal to pass cleanly over a 6 meter hdmi and the issues begin. Then the though is if a premium design handles the signal when a budget cable can't then does it perform better even at short distances? This isn't the place for this debate and in the audio world this is like the AMD vs Intel debate here....lol !
Do yourselves a favor and check this site out. it will blow your mind that wires can sound different and actually be treated as the integral component that they are in audio and video systems....not so much for computers as just don't require the same reference......or should they / will they in time?
