THX Monster Cable?

No...the only MC I have is a run of 201XLN in the van going to the front amp.

i'm currently unemployed...my various summer jobs financed my dorm system, and i'm coming down to the end of it :) which is probably why my TC 15" won't have an amp until the end of the school year...sigh. My tube setup will have to wait until the summer, I don't have the $1k I need for the DIY MTM's, 12AX7 preamp, Rega 3 turntable, etc, etc...

anybody want to hire a broke audiophile? :)
