We always have threads about "which cable to buy", and "are Monster cables worth it", etc. and those are entertaining, but it's hard to find consistent, reliable recommendations in those threads. You don't know if the person saying "I love my XYZ cable" actually has much experience with a range of cables; and you don't know if they even know what's actually so great about XYZ. Some people are convinced that because they paid more, they got a better cable. They'll swear on Elvis's grave that they hear tone improvements--but often it's either imaginary, or a misunderstanding. They may be comparing a new 10' cable with a corroded old 20' cable, for example. They may just have a preference for higher or lower capacitance (which matters with a passive bass). Some cables look amazingly good, and way too often that fools people into believing (really believing) they sound amazing too. Anyway, here's my attempt at a more balanced and useful set of comparisons: Analysis of Audio Cables Of course these are just my opinions, and YMMV.
