Everything in this hobby is built to its price point. And you will get out of it exactly what you paid for it full stop.

I used to think price paid had a direct correlation with sound quality. That is not the case. That is certainly not the case for wire/cable. Sometimes it does, sometimes it does not. Crap shoot and you have to let your own ears confirm or deny.
Best wire I have ever owned cost me $1.40 foot. Bettered wire costing me over $20 foot.
I really just want to determine if I can tell a difference sonically. This would be system dependent and subjective at best. I can perform a frequency response test but I suspect that any difference would be difficult to discern. I think I can set up an impulse response test that may reveal more.
