Sell your Monster Cables on Ebay, and buy some Blue Jeans.

Yes, you can, but there is no good reason to do so.

Just my opinion, but I feel there is a LARGE difference in audio quality between standard CDs and Hi Rez discs (DVD-A and SACD, which stand for DVD-Audio, and Super Audio CDs, respectively). But, both formats are like standard CDs in that some discs are mixed and mastered better than others. A well mixed and mastered SACD or DVD-A, to me, is goosepimply amazing.

Have you ever noticed the difference between music on a CD and the way music in a movie soundtrack with Dolby Digital 5.1 or DTS 5.1 sounds? If so, that will give you a good idea of how much better a good DVD-A or SACD can sound.

Both are high quality cables. The Axiom cables are a bit prettier, and hence cost a bit more. To some people good looking cables are important. I believe Axiom's own Alan has referred to it as "audio jewelry". I personally don't care what they look like. In fact, the idea is that I don't want to see them at all! That being the case, I buy my cables from Blue Jeans. High quality stuff at very reasonable prices.

Certainly no knock on Axiom's cables. From everything I've read, they are very high quality cables as well. It's just not worth the extra money for me.
