Interconnects, speaker wire, power cords. Ask the Cable Guys.

RE: ATTN: Moderator!

Duster those are all just different types of Interconnects and as such belong in one category i.e., the Interconnects area! But when I'm looking for a digital wire, which just like the different types of ICs you mentioned in your post, they also come in numerous versions such as: S/PDIF, COAX, TOSLINK, AES/EBU, USB, Is2 to name the ones I can think of, I don't want to have to peruse through the 98 different ICs listed. I want to just see the digital wires listed, period. It wouldn't take much to add a separate spot for Digital Wire in the Cables/Interconnects category and I'm curious why they don't.

By your logic all amplifiers be they Solid State, Tube, Integrated Solid State, Integrated Tube or Receiver should be listed under just one category, amplifiers! But if you'll check you'll notice they don't do that! Why? Because someone looking for a tube amp doesn't care to see the solid-state amps listed for sale. So each amp listed above has a separate listing area you can post your amp for sale or purchase an amp.

It's the same thing with digital wires! People looking for a digital wire aren't interested in the ICs listed for sale. Why? Because they're not interconnects and as such should have a separate area you can list them and purchase just digital wires in. Doing that is just common sense....
