Can Ethernet cables effect sound quality?
Chord took extensive efforts to demonstrate the influence on sound quality that different Ethernet cables can have in the listening room. What they learned is that different cables influence sound quality and that this difference can be heard in entry level and high end equipment.
In the same way a good quality USB cable can have a significant effect on the sound quality you experience, a high quality Ethernet cable can also offer sonic improvements.
