i have never seen "high quality" A-A cables but i'm currently using a 10
foot, thin, non-gold-plated one that cost $3. the performance is just
fine. what do you hope to gain by buying an expensive
made-by-a-brand-name-you-can-trust instead of some generic cheap asian
knockoff? it's not like you're going to wind up with randomly scrambled
data in your files!

i mean i can vaguely sort of understand it for analog audio cables (but
still not enough to buy monster cables instead of just reasonable gauge
wires (ie: not the stuff that comes for free with the device)).
