RE: ethernet cable and sound

"Wow, you have it all organized!"

These are all things that someone must do if they want to get to the bottom of why "bits aren't just bits".

Alternatively, one can select and set up one's system in such a matter that one is unconcerned about this level of detail. It's pretty clear that any wires or electronic components in the vicinity of audio equipment can affect sound quality, something that I've noted for a long time. Of course, since the advent of computers and other digital devices the EMI situation has gotten much worse than back in the day of tube based phonographs, tape machines and radios. Most radio hams, as I was 50 years ago, had direct experience with high power radio transmitters causing obvious interference with phonographs and radios, but there were also subtle effects that weren't so obvious, and these could happen with lower power signals.
