hi, if ripping from an external dvd drive using dbpoweramp to aiff and storing the ripped cds in an external hard drive, how important are cables from the drive to the pc and pc to the hard drive.I see a fair bit of discussion on the use of somewhat expensive cables in playback and I wouldnt be opposed to trying something a bit down to earth like the kimber usb or wireworld starlight but would these help at the ripping stage? any thoughts on this would be appreciated. thanks!

(IMO)

 

So long as the cables are to spec they'll be no difference.

...in my opinion / experience...

While I agree "Everything may matter" working out what actually affects the sound is a trickier thing.

And I agree "Trust your ears" but equally don't allow them to fool you - trust them with a bit of skepticism.

keep your mind open... But mind your brain doesn't fall out.

thank you Eloise for your view - I am using the stock cables that came with the burner and hard disk - safe to say that these would be up to spec I suppose?
