Your viewpoint of why "most people" buy high end cable seems misinformed at best. Neither myself nor any of my audio friends have ever bought high end cable or audio gear with the, "it cost more, so it must be better", train of thought. We buy it because it sounds better and therefore makes the listening experience that much more enjoyable. I have tried cables that cost much more than my already pricey ones that didn't sound good in my rig. I didn't keep them because they cost more I can tell you that!
I've heard RdaioShack cables, they sound like crap and $400 Monstercable cables are not high end. In fact, to my ears they sound like crap too.
You have to trust your ears, not what some dimwit naysayer posted on the internet. Hell, don't trust what I've said either, try some for yourself. It's the only way to truly know.
A doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.
