Bottom Line:   
I had been using monster cable for my projector when I decided I would like to try an up-grade. I thought it would be informative if I compared a high priced one and a moderately priced one. I chose to try the Kimber DV75 three-wire version at $540.00 for one meter, borrowed from a dealer, against the LAT International VI-6 three-wire version at $149.00 for one meter. The difference that I saw immediately was the much better color depth and color purity with the LAT. Colors were more realistic especially skin tones. Detail was much sharper with the LAT; more like a photograph when using a good DVD. As far as appearance and, physical comparisons is concerned, the construction of the Kimber was flimsy compared to the LAT. The Kimber is made up of three of their standard single DV75 composite wires stuffed into a nylon mesh covering. The LAT in comparison looks really impressive in its construction. There are three wires; each one is colored either red green or blue. Since each one is a particular color, I am guessing that each one is custom engineered to do what it is supposed to do to get the best results for its color. But then, I am not an engineer so it is just a guess. There is also a heavy-duty sheath around the three wires that lay parallel to each other. In the instruction sheet that comes packaged with the cable, it says that that this sheath is impregnated with particles of a shielding material that blocks out any outside interference’s like CB operators and other RF junk. It seems to work. I have always had some very, very, faint horizontal lines appear on the screen with some DVDs. While evaluating the Kimber, that had only the fish net covering, the lines did not go away. They did, however, go away completely with the LAT.

Conclusion? The Monster Cable is not even in the same league with Kimber and certainly not with LAT. I won’t even bother to comment on its performance. Then too, in my experience I have never been impressed with any Monster Cables whether they be video or audio. They have a big name but don’t come through on a price to performance basis. I own other LAT International cables throughout my system all of which are moderately priced yet give excellent performance. If you are curious and don’t know about LAT, check them out at their web address latinternational.com

This comparison of the high priced Kimber to the LAT concludes with LAT being the easy winner and, proved to me again that with LAT (and maybe some other brands out there that I don’t know about), you don’t have to pay big bucks for cables like the Kimber to get great results.
