ETHERNET CABLES


When using ethernet for hooking up streaming devices and dacs, what cat level of  ethernet cable should be used. Is there any sonic improvement by going to a  higher dollar cat 7 or 8 cable?

I find it amazing that someone thinks that their 10ft cable at home can clean up a stream from thousands of miles away.
 

But, hey, each to their own, doesn’t matter that empirical evidence shows Ethernet cables do absolutely nothing, and it is not even theoretically possible to improve streaming with a network cable once you have good functioning network transmission,

I became a believer in conditioners affecting SQ quite by accident-bout a monster device to deal with tv issues and noticed better sound thereafter.

So I am in the camp that isolation is a good thing.

I have no idea whatsover whether and ethernet cable cd injure sound transmission or not or even if it cd at one place but not another.

I wd suggest that unlike other audio things it doesnt cost much to experiment and again unlike other audio equipment changes a cable that doesnt work for the audio as one hoped can still be used for other networking connections so not much loss overall.
