    Looking for a website that sells cheap cables but forgot the name =[.

    I'm looking for a website that sells generic cables in bulk (10+ ft) for very cheap. I remember that they were like Monster's but at half the price if not less. They had 10+ ft RCA's, HDMI's, etc etc. If you guys can come up with it, that would be great. Thanks.

Does the sound really improve...
