Quality of Monoprice cables

by PeterThrift / August 25, 2011 9:06 PM PDT

I have just purchased a Marantz CD player and integrated amplifier. Is the quality of Monoprice's RCA audio cables sufficient for my new equipment? Do I need to spend as much as $40 for a 1.5 foot analog cable?

I think it's fine.
But if you want to convince yourself, find a shop that will let you try and return the cable if you don't hear the difference.

Cnet editors often recommend Monoprice cables. They say they use Monoprice in their own labs and see no need to spend more.
