    The width of the cable makes no difference with digital, it's not the same set of rules as with analogue (and those rules aren't exactly as some audiophiles would have you believe). I used to DJ with a 2 quid USB cable, worked fine until I dropped a flight case on it.

    You are correct when it comes to transmitting data, but when you have tiny cabling, constantly wrapping cables up, bending them around objects, or in your case dropping something on the cable will lead to the the cable fraying and eventually seeing breaks throughout.

    To put it in perspective, I have dropped my coffin onto chroma cables and accidentally run the cable under the foot of the coffin a few times. Cable still works.
