That is a bit incomplete. Although the claims of premium cable
companies such as Monster are mostly fairy tails, lamp cord in many
applications would be too small a gauge to carry the signal properly,
especially as the length of the run increases. I would agree that any
generic wire of the same size would be fine. Monster tends to be in
larger gauges than lamp cord. Size (and good connections) is what
matters most. Advertising and marketing hype... not so much.
Really? digital bits should have no phase jitters to maintain signal
quality. Any how, how many people in the world can hear/see the
difference if we believe Monster's claim. There are better things to
spend my hard earned money on. All HDMI cables I use is from eBay
sellers in H.K. None of them gave me any sign of trouble. Maybe my eyes
and ears are inferior to detect the poor quality cable. I am an advanced
amateur musician all my life. I have pretty good set of ears, LOL!

They can have any phase shift you want, even larger than the bit interval
(satellite TV has a almost an astronomical phase shift ;-). Phase *jitter* is
another animal. Cables don't introduce phase jitter, though.
