+1 for monoprice. I bought a 100-foot roll. I think there is a thread around here that shows how to make some really cool cables.

As someone once told me, if you want to eat at the best restaurant, look for the long line. Same with Monoprice. Can't beat dependable.

Big fan of that thread. Never post but I like the vibe and what's been done. Carry on.

from anything ever made by Kimber, AudioQuest, or any similar company.
There's absolutely nothing new in those wires -- neither materials,
engineering, nor magic -- to justify their price.

Made-to-order, custom cables of nearly any size, color, and finish are
available in Pure-Evil's thread. I'd expect to pay at least 95% less than
those prices.

$726? and it was suggested as cost-effective? That's funny! Maybe it was meant as a joke?

I don't sell my cables on here. I just teach others how to make their own ;-)

I think his point was not to spend big $$$ on cables actually

No... m4bama actually suggested them. Did he mean it as a joke?

Didn't seem like a joke to me.

Of course, he also started a thread asking people for advice on speakers, and then at the same time on another thread said he already bought 3 B&W 802 D and was asking if he should buy some Outlaw amps, but then decided he would get Classe amps.
