Kiwi vs. Monster

Discussion in 'rec.audio.pro' started by Robert Higgins, Aug 25, 2003.

  1. Trying to get a small studio up and running. Anybody have thoughts on
    Kiwi vs. Monster cables for mic inputs? Will probably run to Avalon
    pre's. Any other prominent cable manufacturers worth a look?

    Thanks
  2. I honestly have tested both of these cables thoroughly. The result? Neither
    wins. Mogami is better.

    The wonderful thing about high grade balanced inputs and outputs is that
    cable effects mostly go away. Unless you're running thousands of feet,
    just go with something like the Canare Star-Quad.

    The Monster cables are decently made midrange cables, but they cost five
    to ten times what the other midrange cables cost. You're paying for their
    marketing not for the cables.
