I still think anyone who actually buys those cables is *less* stupid than someone who buys Monster cables.

Sadly, the legitimate audiophile approach gets swamped out by nonsense like this. Unfortunately, the legitimate audiophile approach is very simple: a large room, large efficient speakers, correct materials and placement. That's it. No amount of cables, digital/analog, tube/transistor crap will make up for low efficiency 6 inch woofers in ported enclosures badly placed in a resonant room. That room you go to that demos speakers? With the red brick walls, thickly carpeted floor and acoustic treatments in the corners and walls (that you can make yourself and last for the ages)? No one seems to want that at home.

I like the fact that in the "After viewing this product, people bought:" list is a $3.99 HDMI cable.

bemused outsider: Monster's old analog's were a real improvement when they first came out.
...then they went over the top a wee bit.


Confessions from a guy with silver/copper blend speaker cables at $20/ft, and $80 silver RCA pre-amp to power-amp interconnects in a "large" system...


You got hosed.

bemused outsider: Total BS.

HDMI is simple digital, and v1.3 has no trouble transferring data at speeds adequate for any currently used standard application.

This ain't your daddy's analog anymore, where the quality of the pipeline really did matter.


And that's why the reviews are so hilarious. Anyone who pays more than 15 $ for such a cable is in some sort of emergency or really gullible.
