Hey, ain't no one trying to say that $16k cables SUCK - nope. They're almost (almost!) certainly somewhat better than your average $5 fare... Fact of the matter is, though, that unless your floors are marble slab built straight into the foundation (and don't even bother trying to live above ground floor), your walls are perfect (don't even think about paintings, wallpaper, etc.), your window's a fricking bulletproof airlock, your door weighs a whole lot more than you do and has a slide/lock down mechanism, and you don't have any - let me reiterate that - ANY furniture in the room - it's not gonna MATTER. Cuz there are lots more significant sources of loss and distortion, such as those listed above.
...oh, and PS, who cares when you can get 100% lossless fibre optic digital connections for hundreds of times less?
As to getting kickass sound in your average household, nothing - NOTHING - will beat a good ol' 1970s MiJ rig you can get for $100 on ebay. And if you hook up those $16k cables to that, well, still not gonna get perceptibly better.
