When purchasing cables for your devices, one of the main driving factors is the price point for them. Some people wonder if it's worth spending extra money on an HDMI cable or a Speaker cable?
Jeff is building a house and he wants to know the best way to wire up the house. Leo says that if he has bare open walls, he should put in conduit. That will future proof his home for whatever comes down the line. Then he can run Cat6 Ethernet, if he can afford it. Cat 5e is just as good, and more affordable.
George wants to run Cat6 cable in his house, but it's difficult with the home design to do it. So he thought of using the coax cable and MoCA adapters to do it. Leo says that's a good idea, but it can get expensive since he'll have to buy a Moca adapter for each room and it's not as fast as Cat6. It's kind of like Powerline networking.
Mike is thinking of putting cable inside his house, but he's not sure what to wire it with. Leo recommends going the extra step and putting conduit in. That way he can rewire the house when the technology advances without yanking out the drywall again. These days, he'll want at least Cat6, maybe 6a for now. He shouldn't go for fiber now, though. It's pretty expensive.
Rob bought an old church and he's remodeling it. He wants to install Ethernet to create a network in home. Leo says that if Rob wants Internet everywhere, the ideal time to lay down ethernet cable is when the walls are open. However, pretty much everything we do now is wireless. For music, he'll want to do wirelessly. A simple Wi-Fi analysis will show him whether Wi-Fi in his home is crowded or not. If it is, then going back to wired connections is a great idea.
