Audiophile MIDI!??!?

So I went to my local music store looking for a cheap MIDI cable. At said music store, they told me they only carry the expensive cables from their supplier because the people who buy MIDI cables demand audiophile quality sound reproduction. WHAT?!?!?!?! Wait....WHAT?!?!?!?

Ok, let's back up for a second. We're talking about MIDI; only control signals go over the wire. There is no audio signal transmitted, period. The MIDI notes either get there, or they don't. The punk behind the counter is just another moron, and I wasn't about to pay $20 each for a cable.

Needless to say, I'm never going back there again.
