    I the link below, Jon Risch mentioned:
    "Finally, keeping all cables, but especially speaker cables, away from any metal, especially steel, is a good idea. Any conductive metal will tend to short out an electric field, and distort a magnetic one, while a ferrous metal will definitely affect and distort either type of field. A few inches to a 1/2 inch may be all that is needed to prevent the worst of any potential distortions. "

    I'm going to go out on a limb and suggest that it doesn't make any audible difference.

    hmm well our audio/video components that are connected by cables are mainly constructed of metals so I guess we are already screwed. I doubt this is a serious problem if any at all...
