Cables are very important. They have to be sturdy. They have to have the proper connector at both ends. They have to have some insulation. Some situations call for some shielding in the cable. But once they have all that, they are all the same. Video and audio signals, and indeed, all communication along any wire, is either analog or digital. In analog, the electrical signal actually resembles the original. It is an “analog” of the original. If you look at the signal with an oscilloscope, you would see something that looked like soundwaves. With analog signals, all cables degrade the signal somewhat. It is inherent in the nature of cables. But it is almost certainly it is imperceptible. Especially in audio, for a cable to create a perceptible change in the sound, the cable would have to be very, very odd (and miles long, most likely.) However, analog is susceptible to interference from radio waves, etc., and in certain situations, a shielded cable might be useful. Low level signals lik
