    Great Wire - Blends Well with Cream Carpet

    I had this 'wire' in the standard color (pinkish) hooked up in my old apartment for my home theatre system. I bought one 100' spool and wired it all up once and that was it. This 'wire' is such high quality it doesn't feel or behave like 'wire' at all, it's much more like rope or cable. It lays down flat and is pliable like a rope would be. Thinner, cheaper wires have minds of their own and get folds & kinks that make then stick up and look terrible. That's just how they look (not the most important part). You get what you pay for and MONSTER makes great products. The signal quality to my speakers couldn't be better, and the last spool I bought was almost 10 years old when I replaced it with the cream colored variant. My original cuts are still perfectly fine too. I just needed different lengths and a color option that goes better with my carpet. So quality is 100% A+. There is a lot of cheap alternatives out there, but like I say in a lot of my reviews... You get what you pay for. Half the price, half as nice!

    I hooked up two 10 inch sub speakers with a 500 watt amp with the same speaker wire that I had used on my smaller system.The sound/music quality sucked and it wasn't hitting hard enough like it should.I decided quickly that the problem was my amp was to big for the wire I was using,so off to Best Buy I went. I purchased the Monster- Platinum XP Clear Jacket Mkiii 20' Compact Speaker Cable and WOW what a great big difference it made. I finally have clear,pronounced mid's and high's with intense base that I was wanting. For anyone wanting to enhance their current system I highly recommend this speaker cable.

    I moved and had to set up my entertainment system. I used Monster for my other speaker connections and needed a longer length of cable for this room. I have always found the Monster cable to be good, but somewhat expensive. However, I thought it important to match the rest of my speaker connections. It has done the job well and it is easy to work with. The only thing I would like to see all speaker cable companies do is to label the red and black sides of the cable. It would save some aggravation during setup.

    I have Audioquest type 4 speaker cables for my two main towers and bought this for my center and surrounds. Ok, this is not truly "high end," but then again, it's not priced as such. What it IS, is a very HONEST speaker wire for the money and worth the extra price over some of the less expensive wires available. It appears to be 14 gauge and there was a noticeable improvement across the spectrum for my surrounds over my older 14 gauge wire. Be sure to use GOOD quality terminations too (banana plugs, forks, etc.)!

    This is a run of the mill speaker wire. Yes it's better quality then some but the price is outrageous I purchased this and a week later found speaker wire for a quarter of the price with the only different being the outer casing on the cheaper one was a bit thinner but the gauge of copper was identical. All in all I would not purchase this again seeing I just purchased 200 feet for the same price.

    Over-priced and under-sized

    This is very basic speaker wire. No specs, just the Monster name on it. Although I'm not a fan, in this case you can do better at Home Depot or Lowe's. You'll get better wire, know its gauge, and where it can be used (in-wall, direct bury, etc.) This is for running from your receiver across the floor to your speakers a short distance away.

    One can truly never tell if or which cable are actually great without being an expert in audio. Or having super expensive equipment, but what it boils down to is this. I never had a problem in the past with Monster products so I stayed with Monster products. So with that being said.... If you take the time to review and to add purchase great to excellent equipment! Then go the extra mile and get with in reason the high quality sidekicks.

    Great quality for home theater

    Upgraded my home theater speakers and after a day I was not sure of my purchase. I decided to try new wire as my existing speaker wire was an off brand and a few years old. What a difference this made. My highs and lows are crystal clear and it now sounds as if I am in an actual theater. Not all speaker wire is created equal and even though this may not be the best you can get your hands on, you sure can't beat it for the price.
