    Yes, they are a tad pricey, wonder if they are worth the extra expense?

    I think its worth having the quality where it counts but not in your whole network.

    Into the streamer is where it counts the most. Im using chord C stream , which is similarly priced but only cat 7 spec equivalent. Thinking of trying a short length of this from my network switch to the streamer , which in my case is actually the amp.

    6a goes up to 500mhz, 7 goes a bit higher. sure there are other differences too... for our needs i dont think there will be any improvement.

    Certainly cheap enough and works fine with the RPi.

    There's a difference between ethernet infrastructure cable and patch cable, and it's not trivial https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Patch_cable
