question about Monster brand

is Monster Cable branded stuff actually any good?
any time i go to princess auto, it's all roughly the same price as dirt and as a result, most of my stuff is monster

4guage power kit was $20ish, 12guage speaker wire was about $10 for 50'
and 4ch rca's were $5

it's cheaper than any really cheap looking stuff i see everywhere else

Definately decent stuff, i got some things at xs cargo as well, i guess they just like to unload old stock to the "cheap" discount stores? Or perhaps a "trailer" went missing in the past? lol

monster makes good cables but most people don't need anything more than their entry level stuff. some of their products are stupid expensive and may be top quality, but for the imperfect human ear, they are absolutely overkill.
