So I've had my run of cables. Monster never really worked out for me. I understand that you can bring them back to GC or whatever and get a new one but I'm looking for something that will last. Anyway, I found Lava cables a few years back. At the time they seemed very nice, lasted a while, and weren't too crazy priced but this is the 2nd one that's broken now. Going back to their site Lava cables seem kinda gimmicky now. They have a wireless cable that goes for about $60 and an "ultimate" AC power cord. So I'm not really sure if I'm going to go that route again. I used to just make my own cables using Mogami cable and neutrik plugs so I might go that route again. What do you guys use?
