Ethernet cables

Hello everybody!

I would like to have your opinions about Ethernet cables. I recently saw some silly expensive Ethernet cables! Do you think it is worth spending a huge amount for a cable which transfers data? Your thoughts please! 
Thank you!


@audphile1 I like boats are we Trawling now? There are no silly questions regarding Audiophile salvation!😎

I believe we are running a purse seiner….. sorry - couldn’t resist. 

on topic…. great sturdy connectors and verified quality assurance matter, and shielding….

My experience albeit somewhat dated is 50% DOA on Bluejeans

Suggested for APEX dCS streamer/dac ($32k), I have tried for 2 weeks with resounding success: Nordost QNet network switch & QSource Linear Power Supply and premium QSource DC Umbilical interface cables, all $6.3k.  This upgrade is really justified -although expensive-  .

+1 @ghdprentice

purchase cables to the level of your audio system - under and your cabling bottlenecks sonics, over and your money is quickly wasted. So be prudent.

Do you think it is worth spending a huge amount....

In this hobby, "yes" is what we often tell ourselves.....
