Every manufacturer and sometimes reseller will make statements like that to cover any potential issues with thevuse of the product. That way if someone uses the wrong cables or cables that have not been tested, they can claim the product used wasnt approved my the manufacturer. In theory, if a product is spec’ed to use Cat5e or Cat6, it should work with any cable out in the market as long as it follows the Cat standards.
I have iLive systems installed with Home Depot cat5e and working just fine. However that was not by choice. I always go for quality wire from a reputable manufacturer and always recommend the same to others.
