I prefer not to pay the 1,000 % markups for exotic cables.

As long as the person who owns it is happy, that is the bottom line.

Is there a good "Monster cable" pre-fab alternative that is cheaper and of equal or better quality? After reading all of the posts, I've decided that I'm not going to spend mega $$ on cables. But neither do I want #12 lamp cord from WalMart.

My thought was this - I'm spending close to $10k on my system, what was another couple of hundred for decent cables to go with my system?
|A few months later I needed to buy a digital coax cable for my digital cable box - this time I ran to Radio Shack and got one for somewhere less than $20. It did sound like crap - very tinny - almost tiring to listen to. My $70 IXOS digital coax sounded warm and clean from the very day I bought it - I swapped it from my DVD player to my cable box and the sound was ENTIRELY different. This wasn't just my imagination - anyone with half an ear could have easily discerned an A/B comparison here.
