i lifted this post off another local board here in canada, jambands.ca
anyways, heres the linkhttp://consumerist.com/362926/do-coat-hangers-sound-as-good-monster-cables
i find this hilarious, and i know ive read some of you folks around here saying that monsters just arent worth all the extra $$, that a cable is a cable is a cable, for the most part, i do realize for home theatre app's its a little different, i just found this funny, thought someone here might get a kick out of it as well.
Unknown to me and our 12 audiophile buddies, prior to the ABX blind test, he took apart four coat hangers, reconnected them and twisted them into a pair of speaker cables. Connections were soldered. He stashed them in a closet within the testing room so we were not privy to what he was up to. This made for a pair of 2 meter cables, the exact length of the other wires. The test was conducted. After 5 tests, none could determine which was the Monster 1000 cable or the coat hanger wire.
cheers, now i have to go shovel a foot of snow off our steps, porch, etc etc
