Thanks for the thorough information...
(I got to find some hdmi to dvi connector, currently using hdmi to hdmi cable for my samsung LED, and during wake up, i could see my other monitor with dvi to dvi wake up 1-2 seconds faster than HDMI....)
Anyway, i'm always wondering if a cable could make big difference in video or audio equipment...when i research more about cable, and get to know more on those elite that fetch >USD10000 for a single 2m cable...
It just make you curious if they really deliver the godlike quality...the kind of quality that could give you eargasm, or cry....most of the time, people who review these stuff are either those who get paid for or those who have been affected by veblen effect
With digital, the bit error rate is so low, that it's impossible to notice with the human eye(just get the cheapest HDMI/DVI cable, they work perfectly). Analog can be a different story, but even then you can't really tell the difference between a low-end and a high-end cable.
Same is true for audio cables.
Also, your range of hearing and seeing is very limited. This is what makes things like animation, FM radio and low-bitrate compression(a 16kb/s mp3 is more than enough for speech) possible.
