When You're Serious About Home Theatre You Need the Highest Performance Cable
Serious home theatre isn't just about watching movies-it's about experiencing them. Achieving the best possible picture and sound means using the most advanced, highest definition cable. For Monster Cable, that meant making our best even better. The main criteria was performance - to create the world's highest quality, most advanced line of home theatre cable. So, Monster joined forces with THX, the leader in audio/video quality assurance programs for select movie theatres, home theatre components, and DVDs. And a new breed of ultra performance home theatre cable was born.

For Those Who Want the Best: Monster Ultra Series THX-Certified Home Theatre Cable
Monster's Ultra Series is a result of hundreds of hours of critical listening, testing, re-evaluation, and engineering refinements. Only the most advanced Monster technologies, designs and materials were used. And of course, every cable had to meet the stringent certification standards set by THX. As you'll see and hear, the results are ultra impressive.

Dolby Digital and Other Surround Sound Formats Require Digital Audio Cables
Dolby Digital and DTS are ultra-high quality digital audio formats that provide incredible surround sound and superior performance. You must use a fiber optic or digital coax cable to take advantage of these exciting new technologies.

Introducing Monster Ultra Series THX-Certified Fiber Optic Cable
Monster's Ultra Series Fiber Optic 1000 cable features special high grade index optical fiber and an internal Isotec vibration isolation jacket which greatly reduces jitter for maximum sonic clarity and optimizes digital bitstream transmissions. Bandwidth is maximized, so all the dialogue, music and sound effects are delivered with precision, clarity and accuracy.

I got one of these for $16.97, on clearance at Radio Shack (from $69.99). At this price, it was worth it, but I could never pay $50 for one. Best bet is to get a used or open-box one from a place like Ebay, for much less.

I find no difference between this Monster Optical cable and the ones my wife picked up for me at Target (I think they were Sony). Point being it is an Optical cable made of fiber optics. For these short runs, a cable is a cable is a cable, if it passes light - it works. Unlike copper where conductivity matters and the many technologies behind wire twists, oxygen free copper, and so on, an Optical cable is simply a piece of silicon wrapped in fancy sheathing, good packaging and aesthetically pleasing colors. If it passes light - it works.

Point being is that this cable did what it was supposed to do - it passed light transmission from one piece of A/V gear to another and does its job well. One major issue I did have was the connector end stays in the unit if I unplug it, I have to reassemble the cable/connector before inserting it again, otherwise it works just fine.

Did not purchase this on Amazon, saw it on a electronics store website for $9.00 bucks plus shipping, thought what the heck.

Price is back up there, and I don't really know why they were so cheap, they came brand new/sealed etc. Quality seems great, the connectors is on some type of spring, as you can move it slightly back and forth, seems pretty high tech, even if it doesn't do anything, but I don't know.

The jacket material is a very firm mesh type, not sure what's it's called, but not your typical plenum or PVC. All in all construction seems really nice on this cable, connector tips look very nice.

Again, I wouldn't pay full price for this, and that's not to say they might not be worth it, but I know for a fact I do NOT have the hear to honestly say I can hear a difference between this and a regular old belkin/wirelogic/phillips etc Fiber Optic Cable. But this one looks much cooler, and construction IS top notch.

Here's the deal folks. You cannot make a digital signal "better." Either the signal gets through, or it doesn't. Either the cable works, or it doesn't. Monster Cable, purveyors of ludicrously overpriced audio/video accesories designed to capatilize upon the naivete of buyers and the rampant superstition in audio/videophile circles, apparently saw fit to create not just one line of overpriced digital optical cables, but to make two different versions: Monster "Standard" and Monster "Ultra." "Ultra" of course, costs more than twice as much as the "Standard," but the kicker is that THEY BOTH WORK EXACTLY THE SAME. You will not notice a difference between them.

Those 1s and 0s going through a digital cable either get through or not at all, contrary to what Monster Cable would have you believe. I can imagine Monster Cable telling us that the 1s, with their sharp, angular edges, have a harder time flowing through the cable than the rounded 0s, and that the only solution is their own, speciality brand cable. Buy your digital cable elsewhere and avoid these clowns.

This is one of many Monster brand cables I purchased over the course of my life and only recently realized that I paid about 10x what the product should actually cost. For many years (basically from the early 90's until the late 00's) Monster had a brilliant marketing scheme whereby they trained B&M electronics store employees to push their absurdly overpriced cables whenever anyone purchased an HDTV, Blu-Ray player, A/V receiver, etc. The employees would tell people things like "your new HDTV won't work without this gold-plated Monster HDMI cable" or "you won't get full 1080p resolution if you buy brand XYZ HDMI cable" and other nonsense. There was once a time when gold-tipped, ferrite-shielded, magic-imbued widgets actually had an impact on picture/sound quality, however, with the use of digital signals, all of that is obsolete. Digital signal quality is not boosted at all by any of Monster's technological mumbo-jumbo; as long as the 0's and 1's make it from point A to point B, everything else is irrelevant. Please do yourself a favor and Google all of this as it was a real eye-opener for me. I now try as hard as I can to dissuade family, friends and other consumers from feeding the coffers of the greedy Monster. Please look at excellent alternatives such as Monoprice, Blue Jeans Cable, Amazon Basics, etc and buy a product that is just as good or better than the Monster cables for a fraction of the price.

Not sure how much better it is sound wise than other monster cables but definitely more secure and feels much sturdier.

I purchased this to replace some basic analog audio cables running from my blu-ray player to my receiver. The difference in the fidelity of the sound was extreme. With my electronics background I can say this sounds pretty much like any other optical cable. However, I chose to spend a few extra bucks to get a product that has excellent overall build quality.

Sound quality is good, but the connector has too tight of a connection. Every time I pull this cable out of the back of my receiver, the plastic connector disconnects from the cable and stays in my receiver. Not worth the money unless you really like the sound of Monster cables and don't plan on disconnecting the cable regularly.
