Monster cables and higher-end cables have been around for a few years. The marketing for these high end cables seem to indicate you'll get better audio from your speakers by buying these pricey items. In fact, these very expensive cables don't make a significant difference. When you are purchasing a TV set or a stereo system, retailers will try to convince you that Monster cables are a must-have. Furthermore, the cables have been selling extremely well as an accessory item. However, Monster cables are very expensive and--a few feet can put you back a few hundred bucks.
