Default Monster or AR.

I am currently using 16 gauge Acustic Research speaker cables. I want to swithch to Monster THX certified speaker cable. However I am wondering if it will make a difference. Is monster cable better than AR brand? Has anyone even heard of Acoustic Reasearch? Please help.

Go to Home Depot and get the amount of 14 ga speaker wire. Speaker wire is speaker wire. No need to spend hundreds when you can spend about $30 on 100ft and get the same quality.

If you can hear the difference between thousand dollar speaker cable and normal lamp cord zip wire consider yourself unique. No one on this planet has ever been able to prove they can hear a difference.
