When it comes to buying cables, consumers are often surprised at the cost of high-powered cables for their home entertainment setup. We’ve seen customers come in for a cable, get sticker shock, then go buy a lower quality cable at a big box electronics store. What happens when home entertainment system owners opt for the cheaper cables, though? They end up compromising a huge amount of performance, ultimately limiting the potential of their AV system.
When you buy a higher quality cable, you’re paying for a durable, reliable piece of equipment that helps your entertainment system perform at its full capacity. Why spend several thousand dollars on a home entertainment system only to cripple it with low quality cable? Most shoppers should expect to spend about 10-20% of the cost of their AV system on cables.
Furthermore, low quality cables increase your risk of having to replace sooner. Especially with in-wall cables, rats and other vermin can get to them, chewing through and ruining the wiring system. The end result is that you will have to spend several thousand dollars to pull open your walls and rewire your house. Yikes!
