Joe Cornwall of Impact Acoustics and Cables to Go discusses why
cables do indeed matter when considering your wiring needs for a whole
house audio installation or home theater. When generating a cable list
for your home theater it's important to consider not only what your
devices are, but length, signal type and intended use - both now and
future. Failure to consider all options can result in a
misconfiguration and lots of work down the road.
