I like to understand the how and why of things. This way I can tell if making a change is going to make a difference. Id like someone to clarify a few things on guitar cables. 1.[FONT="] [/FONT]Is a chain of cables only as strong as its weakest link, or does each cable degrade the signal a little more? Lets say you have a chain of 10 cables between your guitar and you amp (with pedals in between). Is statement A or B true? A.[FONT="] [/FONT]A signal chain is only as strong as its weakest link. i.e. if 9 of the cables are super high quality, with 1 low quality cable, the low quality will completely ruin the end signal, rendering all of the other high quality cables pointless. B.[FONT="] [/FONT]The chain signal quality is based on factoring in each and every cables quality. So having 9 cables with 0% loss (not possible, but lets consider it for mathematical purposes) and 1 cable with 10% quality loss will yield a signal chain with 90% quality (1.00 * 1.00 *, , * 1.00 * 0.90). Likewise, using 10 cables in the chain, each with 10% quality will yield 0.90 * 0.90 * 0.90, etc (0.90 to the 10th power) = 34.8% quality in the end. (Thus proving the use of at least some high quality cables purposeful.) To put it another way, does having one bad link in your chain make all of the good links irrelevant? Lets say my signal chain goes through nothing but high quality pedals and cables, but I start out with a wireless system. Ive heard people argue good and bad things about my wireless (Samson Airline), but it obviously has to introduce some sort of degradation into the signal. By using wireless (obviously the weakest link) did I just ruin everything and make it pointless to use high quality cables, or am I benefitting from the high quality cables because at least after the wireless, I know my signal wont really suffer much more degradation? So basically Im asking does one so-so quality cable or a wireless system blow the whole signal chain even if everything else is high quality?
