Monster cables are a total waste of money especially for your type of audio application. Just look for a well manufactured cable, the spec stuff is a joke. I used a $150 monster DVI cable in a projection application and than compared it to a $40 cable I purchased on-line. There was no difference on my 10ft screen. Did the same with my Toshiba 62in DLP no difference. It certainly is not going to make any difference on a simple analog signal.
Well which one is it?
I agree with most of what you said its just when you spend $50 for a Monster 20Ft 1/4in keybd./guitar cable you can tell the difference between that and something around $25
"To say that there is NO performance difference (as if it's an objective reality any sane person would agree with) is a pretty extreme position to take"Yikes!!! Lighten up, were talking about cables not NK having a nuclear weapon.
So how far does the AVERAGE musician carry this logic. Spend $90 for a 20ft Klotz cable, how about $125 for a 20ft Zaolla? People say they hear the difference between a Monster and Zaolla cable. Where does it end for the average person.
How much is hype?? I don't know, I could not find a link from any of the high end mfg's that were able to prove it with actual measurements.
