Honestly, I don't know why people bother to prop up the rating of this trash by giving it an average or above average mark. Is it because monster or its distributors feel compelled to salvage whatever reputation they have on this piece of disappointment? Trust me they suck. Threw them away on the 2nd month after I used them to tie-up stuff in my system :-) just kidding but they do stunk

Back when i first got into the hobby i went into Best Buy, and saw a $10 Monster Cable, i bought it, i figured, hey, what could i loose? well, after my whole system has now been upgraded, it comes back to the cables (which i just won a auction on eBay for new Monster Cable interlink 400 MKII) I use the 100 to go from my cdp, and i bought some Radio Shack Gold Series cables to go from tuner (like the FM sounds great to begin with)

well, i can't say much for the 100 over patch cords, i noticed alittle better highs, but thats about it, i think i also bought it, just to say i have brand name IC's, (well, thats not the case this time with the new 400)

IMO the Radio Shack Gold Seires are $2-$3 cheaper (yippie) and "look" better, if your just going for looks, get those, i have nothing good, or bad to say about the 100, it does its job, gold-plated, and sheilding, and for $10 i am not about to say its cheap, because that would be cheap of me!!!

heres my rig (i am a vintage freak)

amp= Sony TA-2650 (soon to be Kenwood KR-8010)
tuner= Sony ST-3950
cdp= Nakamichi CD Player2 Limited
speakers= JBL L100a

This review is for the most basic Monster Cable Interlink 100 interconnect. This cable is terrific for the price. It is a massive upgrade over patch cords, and I have no reservations about recommending it for mid-fi home theatre usage.

For HT, it is fairly balanced and retains a satisfactory amount of bass information and detail. If your HT speakers are set up properly, you don't need to worry about the compressed soundstage.

For music, the soundstage is compressed and details that you can hear with better cable are not present. They sound neither warm nor cool. Even still, these cables are sufficiently musical for non-critical listening. Bass, if your equipment is capable, sounds rich and powerful; mids and highs are inoffensive though nothing to write home about.

An excellent value if your still using patch cords and are skeptical that cables matter (they do), look elsewhere for an audiophile experience.

Its been a while since I visited this site and I just couldn't help but notice one of the reviews below. I completely agree with the notion that one should not expect a "fillet mignon" if one pays for a cheeseburger, but one should at least expect.... well, a cheeseburger(!), and nothing less. The fact that a less-than-a-dollar cable is able to outperform a higher priced product should be obvious to everybody that this is a poorly designed and/or manufactured product. Simply because one can still find some use for this hardware also doesn't mean that people should buy them. True, people like us are "too cheap" to buy more expensive equipment partly because we could not justify paying for something that is supposed to be worth at less than a tenth of its retail price. Moreover, I believe we could discern the difference between a value-for-money product and virtual scam. Just because a manufacturer retails a product so cheaply doesn't mean it is licensed to rip people off. Nor that simply because something is so cheap means that it should not be compared to other similar products.

But curiously, it is people like us that justifies the existence of shops like radio shack. Or hamburger outlets in every other corner instead of steak restaurants. The point is we are a market segment which have specific demands (ie. low price) but which nonetheless have performance requirements. I am not quite certain though if there really is another market segment that doesn't mind paying the price of a "fillet mignon" steak for a beef jerky. Well, we do!! :-)
