I noticed that in many electronics stores, there are two recognizable brand names that sell video or audio cables: AR (Acoustic Research) and Monster Cables. I often see their products side-by-side, each brand claiming the best in a video or audio cable. They both seem reputable, even though Monster Cables boast winning many awards for excellence. The AC cables cost less, while the Monster Cables products cost more. Now, with both brand boasting that their products represent quality, which one is better? Remember, that I am asking for an opinion, not a sales pitch.
