I'm buying new component, HDMI and other cables soon, and was curious what people thought about the differences in Monoprice cables. I'm not sure there is much besides the cable ends. Monoprice customers, what do you think?

I always buy the Premium. They're not that much more and they do seem to use better materials than the standard ones.  
"Everyday room": Panasonic 58" Plasma, Dish HD DVR, Pioneer Elite vsx-23, BDP-23 BR, dv58avi universal dvd player, Paradigm Studio 20 V1, CC-450, Dayton HSU-10 subwoofer.

"Movie/Music room": Toshiba 65" DLP, Dish HD receiver, Marantz 7005, CC-4003, BD-7006, Polk LSI25's-LSi7's-LSiC, 2 original Dayton 10" "Mighty-Mites" subwoofers. (subject to change without notice).
Also have  MB Quart Vera VS05 +.....too much to list. Help me.

I also generally buy the premium, though most of the regular ones seem quite good as well in most cases.  They are so incredibly cheap. Which cables were you looking to go standard?

The Music Part: Emotiva XSP-1, Thiel CS 3.6, Emotiva XPA-2, Marantz SA8004, Emotiva ERC-3, SVS PB-12 Plus 2
