Hello, I have Mu-so Qb connected to Samsung Tv (2012) via optical cable I bought from supermarket years ago. When I watched tv the sound, especially speech, had a kind of robotic tone in it. There was no dropout in signal. I got rid of the distorted sound when I separated the optical cable from other cables running wild behind the table my tv and Mu-so stands on.
My cable chaos includes power cables, extented chord and ethernet cables. All cables are low-cost.
Does high quality optical cable users suffer from the same kind of problem? I have learned that dust in connectors can cause optical cable signal dropouts. What about the tolerance against disruption caused by other cables f.eg. power cable?
