Digital is 1 and 0. Gold plated, titanium flux capacitors, diamond coated cables will not make 1s and 0s look any better. Stick with the cheap HDMIs

I was a Magnolia Home Theater Pro 4 at Bestbuy and I can tell you that digital is digital. Now at the same time you want to get a cable of good quality when it comes to wear and tear but no you will not see a difference in picture. Either you get signal to the tv or you don't.

When it comes to 4K you need a High speed HDMI cable. I bought my cables (for my LG OLED 4k and Xbox One S among other 4k devices) from amazon. They are amazon basic cables and they work great. I left a link below.

this is the only hdmi cable that actually backs up what it claims, and even then it's not worth it.

If it is long you will need an Active Monster High-Speed 18Gb/s HDMI Cable. Anything over 3-4 feet basically needs a Monster cable like this for True 4K.

Is the X coming with its own? I'd imagine they'd include what was needed.

Unless you’ve got a really old cable or you need an extremely long run like 50-100ft, any hdmi cable is absolutely fine.

Not true
4K and HDR needs newer cables.
