Well Sammy Hagar is a big Monster Cable guy.Think Mon$ter is expensive?
have a look at these...
Monster is good quality at too high a price. You are correct to pay about 25% of retail.All the cables in my entertainment unit are Monster and Acoustic Research.
So one very simple question for you. Why do you suppose nobody states in their spec the HDMI version of the HDMI cable? Even the beloved Mon$ter cables fails mention this technological feat in their laughable spec sheet.all the cheap one are the 1.0 version
