I never heard a difference, but it's not always all about sound.
I made a good living for a long time with a set of well trained ears, some said "Golden", and despite the obvious quality of the connectors, and the shielding and grounding, which did cut back somewhat on RF/EM interference/hum, especially with instrument cables plugged into amps, I could never hear any difference in sound with Monster cable that they, and others claim.
... and they were way too expensive for the amount of cabling we needed in the recording studio.
That said, I have one of the first Monster instrument (Bass) cables that, although it doesn't sound any better, has stood up better to rigorous road than most other instrument cables I've owned the past 50 years.
And there has been noticeably less of a problem with RF/EM hum than with cheaper cables, always a problem on stage.
Add the better build quality, the better shielding from RF/EM, and a lifetime warranty, and I don't regret the premium $20 I paid it for over ten years ago.

Sure, I use 16Ga "zip" cord for speaker cables, too. The point is that *power* cables don't affect sound quality and $60 HDMI cables don't work any better than $2 ones. Either they work or they don't.

Depends on the cable. The ones from the stereo store are pretty much the same, but not the one I have. About 40 years ago a crate of Monster cables sunk in a swamp and it was recently recovered. They have a much denser sound that anyone not needing a hearing aid can easily discern. Sure, I paid a premium but I have a Certificate of Authenticity too.

I think Monster came up with a method of insulating their wires so that the wires look 3 time larger than they actually are, inside the insulation.

And a very nice and flexible insulation it is.
But back to the Stradivarius, someone did a high power look at the wood, a lot of the binding resins seems to have been removed. The wood also used had grown during the Monder minimum. Treatment by soaking the tight grain of the wood are thought to be part of the secret, the varnish that hardens but not really that is a mystery.

I bought a 25' RCA cable at cablewholesale.com in 2006 for 11.44. The cable has super nice heavy, flexable insulation, and is overall an excellent cable. A 4' monster would cost like $30. Interesting, my cable costs less today than when I bought it 10 years ago. I've bought a number of cables, including HDMI cables there, and all have been good quality at super prices.

I think they discovered the secret is they sound about the same as any top quality violin. Just like some people listening to a monster cable think the sound is better when it isn't. Proving something happened as a result of a false premise can be difficult, even though a lot of so called "scientists" make a good living at it, and our educational system is polluted with their efforts.

Have you ever dealt with Monoprice?
http://www.monoprice.com/
I have dealt with them exclusively for cables, not for anything else listed on their home page. However, while grabbing their URL today I noticed that they have done a *major* redesign of their website. It used to be not much more than a on-line catalog and you kind of needed to know what you were looking for to find it.
Now I see speakers, musical instruments, etc. I hope this isn't an indication of a change in philosophy, which used be (IMO) quality cables at great prices.
I looked up the cable you linked to and their equivalent (?) cable is priced at $7.33, but I did not look at shipping costs. Theirs is 22AWG vs. 26AWG.

Never dealt with Monoprice. They appear to have good prices as well. Consider what you would pay for a 25' Monster cable?
This past year, I bought a new PC and my old video cable needed an hdmi connection for the new pc. Went online and Staples had one for like $6-7. Went to Staples, and they would have to order it. Went to Best Buy in the same mall and they wanted like $20 or $30 for the same one. I sprang the price match on him, and he said you can't match the price because their cable was a BestBuy cable and no one else sells that brand. I instinctively went off on the dude, later apologized, told him I should have yelled at his boss, but he could pass on my opinion. Of course BB is on my S-list for now... yes, I bought the piece of crap cause I wanted it NOW. I hate when that happens...

Most likely then the result of more sophisticated measuring equipment. The cool thing is a lot of folks will swear there is a big difference, just like those that think they can differentiate the sound of a Strad vs a modern, super high end violin.
On the other hand, it is easy to determine the difference between quality and junk, at least in most things. A $3 HF clamp vs a $50 Irwin is not difficult to asses, even in the dark:-) I own some HF clamps, and they were worth every penny...

When you refer to "monster cable bs" and say that the article is like "monster cable bs", you are pretty much admitting that the article is right because monster cable is BS.
