Cables: Do They Actually Matter?

more_vert
My thoughts on this, in no particular order:
  • Headphone cables absolutely make a difference. My ZMF Atmos S cable for my HD 6XX sounds brighter and slightly clearer than the stock cable. In that vein, material seems to make the single largest difference.
  • Interconnects (either for speakers or from DAC to amp) make a difference.
  • Digital cables (HDMI, USB, coax, toslink, etc) don't make any difference.
  • And most importantly, the difference between the quality of cables is subtle at best unless you're comparing to some trash cable that picks up EMI like an antenna.
What's YOUR experience?
