"But these things are so darn expensive. Yes I know that is true, but I am going to let you in on a little secret, I used to work for a large retail company, and since I was a manager I could look up items that come in and see exactly how much markup was taken by the store. Now first off, games and DVDs don't make a store all that much money, honestly, at the store I worked for, our cost on a $50 game was around $46 bucks. Not that great, so anyone out there who thinks that retail people are getting rich off of video games, then let me be the first to tell you that is simply not the case.

Because it's technically hardware, and they know that anything that can make your system look or sound better is something they want to exploit. So in order to combat this, I do a couple of things when I need cables."
