Monster Cables face off against Coat Hangers
"I always make sure I don’t cheap out, which sometimes means buying the more expensive cables and higher gauge speaker wires. All this leads me to a very interesting impromptu case study to determine if the hefty exaggerated cost of the MONSTER brand cables is really worth it. The test set a small group of self-confessed audiophiles to listen to a selection of “smooth trio easy listening jazz” on a Martin Logan SL-3 speaker set at 75db and 1000KHz. The Monster 1000 audio cables (retailing at around $180 for a 12ft cable) connected one set of speakers and were facing off against another connection made from coat hangers!" - Me from Bookmarklet
I don't care what kind of quality, loss-rate, etc. etc. Monster claim for their analogue cables, given the whole thing with the HDMI cables. In fact, how do the company even still exist? - Slippy
Slippy, because they only have to sell a small fraction of what their competitors do, when they're making 20-30x more than costs, easily. - NOT THE CRICKET
Simple. It's the Kansas City Shuffle. - Adrian
Why isn't The Internet doing something? Isn't that what we do now? You know, making memes until someone goes out of business. - Slippy
Also if you EVER need any sort of cables, best place to go is http://www.monoprice.com/. They know what's up and their quality cables are less expensive than even the cheapo cables at say Radio Shack. - Adrian
