What I was pointing out is that you haven't auditioned the $100k system with stock cables and a $1000 system with $50k power cables to see what the real differences are in terms of sound quality.
The cables in the wall aren't even rated at that grade, and even if they were it still wouldn't make sense.
It would make some sense, and it wouldn't hurt to have better quality wiring in the wall and around your house, but we shouldn't worry about that too much unless there is a major power issues with your power line in the house. What matters is the last several feet in the power cables that rejects noise, that depends on the manufacturer / models though. YMMV.
It's the same logic when it comes to speaker wire. For most setups there's no difference after 16 gauge speaker wire. Some people go with 10-14 gauge wire just because it's not much more, and it's better for distant runs.
I wasn't talking about signal loss due to long distance wiring. I wasn't speaking of 1's and 0's, open and close. It's the analog side (almost everything is analog in the audio system) where the sound changes depending on your equipment (including cabling).
This guy has taken monster cables to a whole new level. I don't really understand how delusional a person has to be to buy into this stuff.
It's the Monster cable manufacturer that gives bad names to all other aftermarket cable manufacturers. Monster is just one of the many examples.
