I read in the FAQ that Chris Tsutsui commented that he noticed small differences between several brands of speaker wire. Does this mean, then, that there is really no justification for the tremendous price of, for instance, Monster's speaker wire? I would really like to know if anybody has ever noticed any difference that would warrant the extra cost. Finally, is the same true (little noticeable difference) for interconnects? Sure, there may be a lifespan difference but with the money one saves surely one would be able to replace the wiring/cabling and still end up paying less. Basic question: for an average HT setup, will I really benefit from the cost? Will a casual listener be able to tell the difference, assuming high-quality source and output? Any answers are appreciated. Thanks.
