Surely A Large Human

The great thing about digital, or binary forms of communication, is that it only has two states. Either it's working, or it's not. If your cable resembles a ball of yarn that a cat has been playing with for the past decade, and when you use it to connect up the coaxial audio between a DVD player and your stereo, should you notice sound cutting out or being choppy, you'll know where to look. I've used cheap ass RCA cables to connect coax digital inputs and outputs, and I defy you to tell the difference between them and fiber, or monster cables, because EACH OF THEM DELIVER THE 1's and 0's.
There are no bonus "quality" points for a cable that represents a positive voltage stronger than another cable. It just doesn't matter. If the voltage is there, the digital requirement is met. If you're worried about HOW MUCH of the voltage is there, how QUICKLY it responds to subtle or rapid changes in voltage, its overall resistance, etc., you're talking about analog, and that's different. And even at that, you'll hardly ever find someone who can tell a real difference between electrical lamp wire and that cryogenic shit that is made on the space shuttle.
Don't fuck with me on this, you'll lose.
