Any cable will do, there's no difference between them.

So you're saying that furutech gt2 has the same sound of an amazon cheap cable? Weird! Maybe we all should use 1$ speaker cable bescause they are all the same!!!

I can't say about speaker cables, but when it comes to carrying digital information, like USB cables, they should all perform the same.

Yes.

This may not in fact be wrong, but do you not understand the fundamental difference between a USB cable and speaker cable?

i understand, but what i cannot understand is why some usb cable cost 10$ and other 1000$, they should have differences. If they don't have any differences this maybe the biggest fraud of all time!!!!!

Maybe not the *biggest*. And they do tend to look prettier.

They cost different amounts because clever and very sneaky people are able to word advertising in a way as not to upset the standards agencies, and more importantly convince ignorant people that they will perform differently, when in fact the free grey or black one you probably have will do an identical job to one that costs a mint.

Speaker cable is different as it is electrical, although the differences to be gained between good £2 a metre and £1000 a metre are at best, slight. So much so that a million dollar offer from James Randi has never been taken up.

I wonder why?

I heard a difference after I sneezed once. But I'm easily blocked up.

Awkward.

Yes. Badly phrased on my part. USB is indeed electrical. But the electrical properties are not important so long as the USB cable is to spec (ie can deliver a USB signal)

Yep, 'fraid so. And it damages your credibility in relation to analogue cables also.
