He's funny and knows what he's talking about. He needs to try the decaf though.

If anyone is curious about the monster cable litigation that he is referring to, check out audioholics.com and do a search for monster cable. they have the entire letter from Blue Jeans Cable, as well as other instances of monster's assholery (such as suing a family-owned miniature golf course)

Here's the Monster vs Blue Jeans correspondence links on the BJC website:

I've read that previously but had forgotten about it. One more reason to not buy Monster Cable stuff.

He's good. He kept repeating himself, however, and was spastic. I'm guessing meth.?

Do you guys really think the monster BJC thing is real? Looks like a pretty funny april fool's day joke.

well anyway if its real, I hope monster fired that lawyer, what a dumb pos.

I also saw the vid, and the recent responses mare sort of indicative with a lot of the issues currently plaguing science and the whole cable issues. If you really believe in everything that science tells you, then cryogenic treatment actually does matter, high end digital cables really do matter. But even as someone who claims that they hear differences in cables, I've never heard a differences in high end digital cables. BUT Science tells us that there are difference. And as for cryogenic treatments, all you have to do is look at certain precious metals and stones. They vary in terms of quality, but what you have to realize is that they're quality depends on their "purity" in crystalline structures, in other words the fewer imperfections, the better. The crystaline structure in metal(wire) is the same. Cryogenic treatments lead to bigger crystals and fewer imperfections that cause noise. Science TELLS you that there are differences in what you should hear.

But the rub is, people ignore that part of science, and then go and cite the "part of science" like DBT's and other previous tests that head-fiers still say are scientific. And my issue with that is, they're half telling the truth. Now to the guy in the video's credit, the other side does the same thing, they also ignore certain parts of science to support their issue and omit some parts. Moral of the story -both sides aren't using science, or at least they are abusing to such an extent that we use phrases like "Cable believer" or "non-cable believer" to indicate that we are no longer speaking about scientific matters but rather matters of faith.. ah crap I'm treading over the rules... I'll stop now

are you kidding? Monster does this ALL TIME TIME! They have teams of lawyers who go after small companies, and intimidate them into signing a licensing deal for their patents and/or "trademark." they are a textbook corporate bully! those lawyers aren't fired... they're given huge bonus cheques!!!

most of the time, these little guys just sign on the dotted line, since these family operations cannot afford legal assistance for the prolonged battles that Monster forces them into.

fortunately, a few businesses do occasionally fight back. there is a miniature golf course called "Monster Mini Golf," which Monster Cable sued for trademark infringement (like anyone is going to confuse putt putt with hdmi). they expected to quickly close a royalty deal, per usual - thankfully Monster Mini Golf has taken the noble, difficult road of fighting back.

I figured it was real until I saw the first page of BJC's response, and quite frankly hilarious letter to Monster.

Look at the "Subject" line on the first page of BJC's response letter:
"RE: Your letter, received April Fool's Day"

Does he have a point or he dosen't know what he is talking about..?
