I know I don’t need to explain this to any of you, but for any lurkers who want to believe, I’m in the “biz” and this is snake oil. If I shopped the idea of fancy Ethernet cables giving better performance around the office, I’d be rightly laughed out of a job.
"I must say though, artists like Kurt or Thelonious Monk who people think have something to say of the highest importance but are really just suicidal or insane sort of freak me out. Why? Well, everyone thought Monk was really "out there" but they followed his lead and jazz changed. Turns out he really was insane and was finally locked up. Does that mean that the jazzers were wrong to follow him? No, but still." - STeVE

But I do very clearly hear differences in Ethernet cables on my system. I recently installed some Belden Cat 6e cable into my digital streaming front-end on a recommendation, and the sound of it literally drove me out of the room. It was absolutely ghastly. My Audioquest Cinnamon sounds quite a bit better; more on the specifics later as I gather a set of observations.
