    Default WTD: Decent Ethernet cable

    It seems that if I want to start streaming I need a better cable than the basic grey computer one I use. Has anyone got anything, or any recommendations?

    Nothing crazy priced please just a decent upgrade like my chord USB cable that was about 25.

    Cheers Grant that's my sort of price

    Now I need to think what length I need, I hadn't thought of that. I imagine the shorter the better...

    Within reason length isn't important.

    It looks like 2m or 3m both cost only a fiver. I'd always have the extra for free!

    You are better off with CAT 6a for audio. Blue Jeans Cable, arrives in a few days, uses Belden bonded pair conductors and the connections are properly tested with a test report. Three cables cost me just under $50 delivered.

    On the assumption that cables generally have a deleterious effect, and we are trying to minimise that by paying more for a better one, doesn't it also follow that shorter is better?

    I like the look of those but are they screened like Grant's?
