HDMI Carry Audio?

Hi Guys

I recently purchased a 1080i Sharp LCD and When I purchased a HDMI cable at the same time (From Richersounds) I was told that only more expensive cables carry audio as well as video (over £50 or so) and cheaper cables don't carry any audio just video.

Is that right? I was pretty sure all HDMI cables carried audio as well as video no matter what price.

Any help appreciated :)

Never heard that one before - I have a very cheap HDMI cable connectin a PS3 to an HD set - and it carries audio.

Think that may be "Salesman-talking-bobbins" syndrome.
