Pretty cool post about speaker cables… Well worth the read, but the gist of it is this:
After 5 tests, none could determine which was the Monster 1000 cable or the coat hanger wire. Further, when music was played through the coat hanger wire, we were asked if what we heard sounded good to us. All agreed that what was heard sounded excellent
So you see; spending $1000 on speaker cables is just pure bullshit.
