    Works great but pricey

    This cable works flawlessly even for as long a run as it is. I bought it for the length as I am setting up a home theater and I am still re-arranging speaker locations for a room that is not optimal for sound. This cable performs perfectly and gives me the flexibility to move my subwoofer around until I find its permanent placement. There were potentially less quality cables available I could have used and might have been fine and I felt that this cable was pretty pricey... got my surround speakers (new) for a great price and felt a little stung that this cable retailed for more than one of those speakers but I needed it and paid extra for the piece of mind that this would not be a flaw in my system. Nevertheless, right or wrong, I took a star off for the price. It works great, for those who don't have to worry about money it's a 5 star cable.

    Decent if in a bind

    This cable is highly overpriced. The main reason I bought this cable was because I was in a bind and needed a temporary cable to get my subwoofer running while I awaited my main cables to arrive. At first the build quality seems sturdy, but I found out quickly that it is not very good at all at shielding from "noise". I would notice a slight, low-frequency hum that wasn't too audible, but I was able to detect it, especially when in close proximity. After some quick troubleshooting, I isolated to this cable. Replaced the cable with a much higher quality (and less expensive) interconnect and the hum is completely gone. I would not recommend this cable, not only based on the insanely high price tag for such a cable, but also for the poor performance and introduction of noise into the subwoofer.

    I use this to connect to a subwoofer a few feet away. Functionally speaking, it does what it's supposed to do with 100% accuracy. However, my favorite aspect is that it blends in much better with my room color than any black or white cable would. Unfortunately, my family room wasn't designed for a large, full-sized surround sound system. Rather than spending big bucks running a cable through the walls and ceiling, the gray Rocketfish sits inconspicuously on the border between the tan carpet and multicolored fireplace bricks, and isn't too noticeable from a few feet away. Sub connected, speaker sounds great, done!

    Upgraded from Home theater in a box

    I recently upgraded from an Onkyo home theater in a box to the newest model Onkyo receiver with a 4K pass though to maximize the use of my LG 4K TV. I didn't realize that I would need to purchase additional cable for the speakers from the home theater in a box that I currenly had until I got the new 4K receiver home and noticed the home thater in a box subwoofer I had didn't have an RCA connection to connect it to the new 4K receiver. I quickly went back to Best Buy and picked up a n open box 10" Polk Audio subwoofer for $120 and this cable to complete the upgrade to my system. I've been pleased with the cable since it does what it is suppose to and it is the perfect length for my application since I placed the sub a fair distance from the receiver.

    Decent Cable - Works as Expected

    I purchased this cable when I added a second subwoofer to my system. Although my speaker cables are all in-wall, I didn't feel like taking the time or effort to run yet another cable through the walls. Instead, I purchased this cable which although it can be used in-wall, I'm simply running it along the outside wall base and it works fine. It's connecting my Yamaha RX-A3030 to a Klipsch subwoofer, which is about 16 feet away. Connectors seem to be sturdy and the cable is well insulated. Not much more you can say about an audio cable. For most folks, this will perform just as well as the ultra-high-end cables.

    Expensive but does the job

    I have never reviewed but also never really searched for a review that provides evidence that 24k gold plated cables really perform any better or differently than basic less expensive ones. Even if they do perhaps the difference would only be recognizable on very high end equipment. This is the cable I was directed to in order to connect my 100w subwoofer to my receiver. It works great. Would a cheaper one work great too? I really don't know but think the answer is probably so. For the difference of a few dollars either way, I figured I might as well just go with the "better" cable and not have to worry about it later if my assumption was in fact incorrect.

    Giving it a 4-Perfect cable but too expensive

    This cable is really a Fabtastically well made and performing cable. Due to timing I paid full price for it at $44. From a quality and performance aspect I have absolutelly no complaints. Its a 5 star cable in tgat regard but for those of us that maybe building as economical a home theater as possible I have to deduct a star for a cable that almost cost as much as a speaker in my 5.1 setup. Those of you are unconcerned with money may not think that is an issue... for you, don't hesitate to buy this quality product.

    Average rating, but gets the job done perfectly

    When it comes to speaker cable and wire, I admit I sometimes get fixated on brand names. But every review I read said don't do that. I trusted it and found it to be true. This cable works perfect and accomplishes what it has to at an economic price. Unless you're attaching equipment that's tens of thousands of dollars, there's no difference in quality. All the hype about gold plated stuff, name brand, etc. is not worth the extra money. My home theater setup is around $5000, and I trust my receiver/sub setup with it.
