So you are saying that there is no difference between Home Depot wire, and other cables, without testing other wires?
Fine, you are basing this on things you have read. Others have read where cables do make a difference. So which writings does one believe. It I were to read selectively, then Bill clinton did not have sex with that woman.
Personally, I did the test myself so I would KNOW for myself. I suggest you do the same so when you state something as fact, there is some basis for it.
I did some test when I had a low-mid level system, and could not tell a difference. At that time, I would have agreed with the tests you mention. My system did not provide the clarity required to hear cable differences.
Later, when I had better equipment, and a better sounding room, I did more testing and I could easily tell differences between cables. Trust me, I didn't want to hear a difference for my wallet's sake.
Why try to guess about cables with so many differse opinions going around the net? The tests are easy. Have your local dealer lend you some cables, and give it a try.
