    Which brands do you use/recommend.

    Is Apogee just another "re-badged" cable. Curious about these.

    I'm getting a DAC-1 in soon... what would be best way to connect to a MOTU 828 (upgrading this too, as soon as it sells) for the back-end of my studio?

    Well, I can tell you first hand, since I am Apogee's Technical support, that our cables are not "re-badged". They are hand made in house and do indeed have an amazing shielding to them.

    The cables are very solid in performance. If you were to do some Audio Scope measurements you will see a very solid eyed measurement...thus the "wide-eyed" label!

    OK Gary...here we go again with the acronym translation class for Double Helix:

    What the heck is "HTH"???

    "Hit the head"???
    "Hello to Henry"???
    "Hick to Hick"???
    "Homo to Homo"??? :p

    Hey DH...

    of course everyone knows that means "hope that hurt"... no wait... that's not quite right...

    "helps" that's what it means.... "hope that helps"...

    Hehe...thanks Brock! I should've known! Of course I always say that after I hear the translation! It seems so obvious once you know!

    What about "Comprehensive" brand? Any good?
    Is Monster Series 1000 cables worth the money?

    No, monster is not worth the money..it's over priced and over marketed....

    Plain and simple
