I have 91 vintage Monster cable M1 speaker connects - has time passed these by????????
Check the connectors for any sign of corrosion or oxydation at both the contact point and where the wire joins the connector. Cleaning them off with some Caig's DeOxIt wouldnT' do them any harm adn would probably make them sound a whole lot better. Actually, cleaning all contact points, jacks, plugs and connectors once or twice a year is a good idea.
A doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.
In a recent press conference, President Obama remarked, "If I had a city, it would look just like Detroit."
I have a set of the original Monster M1's (gray garden hose), and they were the ONLY Monster product that didn't sound like absolute crap in my rig...

RIP WIlliam B. Dibble, 1948-2012. I'll miss you my friend.
I emailed the guy i bought the C-1 from to see if he still has the TX-11a as a companion, if so, i will get that as well.
There was a definite improvement with the C-1 over the CT-7 though.
