Monster Cable Products, Inc is the world's leading manufacturer of high end cables that connect audio/video components for home, car and professional use. Monster's audio cables have high performance sound characteristics that increase the clarity, dynamics and power of the audio signals. The video cables give improved picture quality to television and home theatre systems.
Monster Cable Products, Inc. was started in 1979 by Noel Lee, who was then a laser-fusion design engineer at Lawrence-Livermore Laboratory, as well as an audiophile and drummer/musician, found that wires of different constructions produced varying degrees of audio performance when hooked up to loudspeakers.
From this discovery, he crafted a high performance cable. He named it Monster Cable, and founded an industry that has since exploded. The creation of Monster Cable started a new product category of high performance audio cables that revolutionised the audio market.
Lee chose the name "Monster" for two reasons. It sounded strong and powerful, and the size of the cable was "monstrous" compared to ordinary loudspeaker cable. The name was a hit straightaway and now is sometimes misused to mean any high performance cable.
Monster offers more than 1000 products, and has become an indispensable accessory for music lovers, audiophiles, recording studios, sound professionals, musicians, custom installers and home theatre enthusiasts.
More than 2,000 different CDs have given Monster Cable credit on the jacket of their recordings and hundreds of feature film sound tracks and Foley sound effects have been recorded with Monster Cable.
