Well, many years ago my step-father told me quality speaker wire is the only way to go "you can hear the difference"
Being the smart a$$ I was, when they went on vacation I swapped out his "quality" speaker wire with plain old lamp cord.
6 months later I asked him how his stereo was sounding, he told me it was as good as ever....That's when I told him what I had done, and gave him back his wire...
He didn't bother to change it back.
As far as HDMI goes, it's digital, nothing but 1's & 0's....How is wire going to change that?
Is it going to change them to 1's & 0's?
Give me a break.....
I will admit tho, I am willing to pay a little more for better construction....
