yeah, here is my 2 centavos-i'm talkin guitar now: high end
cable(monster,george ls, etc.) for me doesnt work for audio!(i know yer
talkin midi) there is noticable transients and added something that i dont
get w/ cheap,that is regular wire(hosa,whirlwind,etc).it is not a quality
issue-you hear it or you dont. i have a/b ed them forever and just have
never found a reason for those high priced thangs,except marketing
strategies(ya know, i payed for this high priced  stuff and after that you
just have to say "wow what a difference").fwiw
(hope i'm not steppin on any toes)
