Someone posted this in a local forum today. http://consumerist.com/362926/do-coat-hangers-sound-as-good-monster-cables. It claims that a home-made coat hanger interconnect sounds as good as an aftermarket Monster cable. Although I am not a fan of Monster cable and the character it gives, I find the extreme claim a little preposterous. After reading the article, there were comments left by some readers that they agree interconnects or RCA cables make very little significance in both home or car audio. Are they seriously deaf or did God not give them ears?

Didn't read the article, but one obvious reason could be that the other components in the chain were not good enough to reveal the differences.

mikey,

these are the kind of irresponsible online comments/knowledge that i keep harping on. online commenters can get away from murder, because no one will be held responsible for such distorted info.

Online hi-fi crimes!! We should set up an online prison and summon them there (along with their coat hangers) *grin*

I wonder if those who say RM10,000 interconnects or cables sound better than RM500 ones are willing to stake their claim of having good ears by taking part in blind tests. Just curious.
