Is that inches, feet or meters?
Ah cables, with this being AVS, cable discussions either turn into a s&^t fight as more people start commenting or the mods shut things down or remove posts so I don't want your thread to get shut down
Personally I have never heard/used either Audio Quest or Cardas as my local dealers are not distributers. I personally have a mish mash of stuff from super cheap Radio Shack analog and video cables for my VCR and dual cassette deck, to Ixos speaker cables, a Monster digital coax, an Audio Research subwoofer cable plus a few Audio Research toslink cables, and some of Kimber Kable's products like Tonics and PBJs, a Cadence subwoofer cable, a couple HD19 HDMI cables and a PK10 Gold power cable.
In the end it all coms down to what camp you fall into, i.e. cables don't make much if any difference or cables are another valuable component in the system and then how much you are willing to spend.
Since I'm in the latter category with my dealer being a Kimber and Siltech distributer I have access to some high quality stuff so when/if I ever stop buying speakers, amps etc.
it would probably be something from the Kimber Select lineup or some of Siltech offerings, the ones that wouldn't require mortgage type money
I also have access to a WireWorld dealer and their products get a lot of very positive feedback.
