Re: RCA cables matter?
I'll actually agree that is a rough way to ground them but gets the job done, I understand it not being the first thing to do and primarily relates to the Pioneer pico fuses, however I really dont see it harming anything at all and makes for a quick fix or quick check.

Otherwise, I get RCA cables on sonic-electronix usually for around ~$10 and they work fine, theres no reason to get the "super gold plated force field insulated diamond plated" $50 RCA cables, before you'd possibly notice any kind of gain from cables like that you'd have to have a setup on par with a recording studio IMO
IT is possible to have defective cables which can cause distortion and reduce sq =P But overall assuming cables are good, no point in spending more for RCA's, in my opinion
