Most enthusiasts know that Monster Cables are usually a Monster Rip-off, but Mr. Bob Dean, over an audiophile at Audioholics, have put them to the Pepsi Challenge..get this…against a coat hanger. Great stuff.
Keeping us blind folded, my brother switched out the Belden wire (are you ready for this) with simple coat hanger wire! 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.
