I know some musicphiles who pay hundreds of dollars for cables because they tell me they can hear the difference. I actually bought pure silver speaker wires for my system once. I can't really tell if they sounded any better than the cheap copper speaker cables that I was using. I did end up selling them for the same price I bought them because of the value of the silver. As far as the prices of video hdmi cables go, I think it's a good idea to have your satellite receiver and blu-ray and other video devices close to the TV so you don't end up paying for every foot that the TV is away from the devices. I was just looking at the HDMI cables at hh gregg and like I said, the longer the cable you need the more expensive it will be. That's the lesson I've learned from seeing all those prices.
