    And the Gauge on this is what?

    Monster has a great marketing team. What they make up for in amazing verbiage and visuals they lack in substantial specifications. I picked up this spool simply because the sales person offered to discount it with the purchase of my rather expensive home theater system that I was buying. I later returned the wire after I discovered that I couldn't find any information about what gauge this wire was. I wanted 12 gauge wire for my setup and Monster, or anyone else who has written a review on this stuff, could come up with a proper gauge on this wire. So I returned this stuff to Best Buy and picked up twice the length 12/2 in wall speaker wire at half the cost. If Monster cannot simply be honest with me about why their speaker wire really is better than everyone else's without resorting to marketing voodoo then they don't deserve my business. I'm giving this three stars because I'm sure their copper will transmit a signal like everyone else's copper will but until their superiority can be proven in a real independent test against equally qualified speaker wire then I simply don't want it in my home.

    Bought this to replace some Platinum Monster Cable speaker wire I've had for about 20 years for my surround speakers. Product information on BestBuy.com was quite lacking, but because of the Deal Of The Day sale price, I bought it. Was very surprised to see the that the upgrade to Black Platinum utilizes wrapping strands of wire around itself to help eliminate interference, similar to the Kimber Kable I use for my main speakers. Considering how so much audio equipment sold today can't even hit the HI-FI standards from the 1950s, and so many people only utilize their MP3 players, it's doubtful that those users would be able to get a benefit from this. But if you've got quality equipment, the best way to improve it's sound quality is by using quality wiring. After all, your system will only sound as good as the lowest performing component.

    You may think your speaker wire does not matter. I can tell you the quality of the wire you use changes the sound of your system completely. If you know what you're listening for you can hear it without a doubt. I have used this wire for several projects over the years. Including car stereo installation and home audio installations. I do not choose to use any other speaker wire for my projects.

    It is a decent quality product. A bit difficult to strip without cutting the wire because outer shield is thick which requires a moderate amount of cutting force, but the inner shields are very thin and easy to cut into accidentally. I would buy it again on sale for infrequent work, but most speaker wire is easer to manage and a unless you are really doing in wall or a higher traffic/harsh environment area, I would say it is overkill.

    Superb low-loss speaker cable, one of the most important components of any system is the speaker cable's ability to deliver lifelike sound, if the speaker cable is too thin the Amplifier has to work harder to 'deliver the goods,' especially over a distance of over ten feet from the amp. Ideally all cables should be of the same length, this ensure, e.g, the front speaker don't get the signal before the rear speakers,one of the best out there.

    I'm no audiophile, but I can certainly see the quality and durability in this stuff! Seriously killer enormous speaker wire. I don't know that it sounds any different than the cheap stuff; but I can guarantee that your speakers will look bad as (expletive) with this wire hanging from the post! Good stuff! If you have the means, I wouldn't buy anything else! Get it!!

    Not worth the regular sale price, but for the Deal of the Day, WHY NOT!? The DOTD price makes it equal to "lesser" (sarcasm) brands for the same length. I wish Monster was honest about their cable and listed gauges, etc. so we could actually compare apples to apples. Using two of these spools to run surround cable to the back of my dads room.

    Purchased this Monster Cable to install my sound system and Home Theater in the walls verses having wires nailed, stapled (whatever) to the walls; and the Deal of The Day that I purchased these on was a great deal. I bought 4 rolls (400 ft) & spent less than $300! Can't wait to listen to great sound, and not see all those wires.
