Thanks for the info / tips guys.
I’ve only just started spending decent $ on CD/DVD Player and surround sound system / receiver so this is really the first time I dealt with these audio digital coaxial cables…
I get the idea Monster Cables are known to be expensive !?, which is a bit of a pain, because basically it seems they’re really the only audio digital coaxial cable my 3 local stores are selling (apart from very cheap ones which might be too cheap ?, they’re only half the price of the Monster cable).
So am I being recommended to stay away from Monster Cables because of the expensive price ?, or is there also something not good about the quality I’ll get out of them ?
Another thing that confuses me is the particular model of Monster audio digital coaxial cable my 3 local stores are selling is the Monster THX “STANDARD” cable.
On the packaging and website this model only mentions Dolby Digital Surround Sound and does NOT mention DTS, this “STANDARD” model cable can be seen here on the Monster website, it is the bottom one out of the 2 shown:
But the audio digital coaxial one above it “ULTRA SERIES” does mention DTS.
Does this mean only the top one “ULTRA SERIES” will play DTS, but the “STANDARD” one which is the only one my local stores are selling will NOT even play DTS ?
Seems like a bit of a bastard act !, the stores are giving me the option of buying something too cheap, or buying the overpriced one to get decent quality…
I really want to go with quality so I might have to buy the Monster cable, which is why I also asked the DTS question in this post.
I’ve been setting my new system up for weeks, all I need is the digital coaxial cable and I’m done !, the things is I can buy the Monster Cable just 5 mins around the corner, so to order a cable which is a bit cheaper off the internet from America and have it sent to Australia (paying for packaging / posting etc) might not even make it worth it, yes, these Monster people do seem like bastards !
