Yosey
was it you who first mentioned "Monster cables"
You would then appreciate this one
When we bought our flatscreen Sony in the Jan 08 sales
A special offer complete with a heavily discounted Blueray player ( to purchase market share, which ploy worked)
Anyway this was a complete Sony package
First words ( virtually ) the salesman said were
"you will need to upgrade your cables"
Reasoning did not prevail
i left the store

Unless you're operating an MRI machine behind your TV, this is a non-issue.

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.
Again, you are not reading what I said and you keep going on about being fuked about this subject. What you are talking about is limited to what we call Line Coding (some call it Digital Baseband Modulation) where you actually simply transmit those high and lows by using schemes like NRZ and others. If you read my comments, they ALL referenced to a different but more prevalent form of modulation that use shit like PSK, FSK and other stuff I sent mlfun to do homework on. Oh and yes, I have worked on the Shuttle at the Holiday Inn

Every visit to Best Buy has been unpleasant. I will not go back. The last straw was when I went to get a PCI ethernet card for our G5 Macs, at work. He proceeded to insult Macs, immediately. I questioned him that if Macs were so fucking bad, why did nearly 6 million PeeCeers switch last year. He was, of course, speechless, devoid of any answers. I then asked him, I guess this means no to the PCI card?
