I invite people to experience a real audiophile system. Yes, some people are nuts, and many products are overpriced placebos, but plenty aren't. Note that cables and other dubious tweaks are pushed heavily by the industry because they have high profit margins, and otherwise the stereo industry outside luxury Asia is doing poorly financially. Ignore them.

not sure if this actually falls under this thread or another, but the specs of some of these units..... Like in one stage, before Class D & G amps became popular, some manufacturers were citing their units to be like in 1000W (yet the PSU consited out of a transformer that gave out something like 12V @ 1A), and maybe 2x4700uf capacitors.... that always freaked me out, and I've always tried to find out exactly what they were measuring, but I always failed.

The main difference between cat3 and cat5 cable is the twists in the wire allowing bigger bandwidth. And we are talking 10 mb/s to 100 mb/s, and HDMI 1.0 was 4.something Gb/s with 1.3 being 10.2 Gb/s. Those are such a drastic difference there is really no comparison between them.
