Is Belden a top brand for cabling?

Client is having an audio system installed in their house.  The AV company is recommending a cable manufacturer that is quite expensive.  They will be running 14/2 jacketed speaker wire, Category 6a UTP, and Coax.

I looked up Belden, which I remember as a quality company.  They were significantly cheaper.

Is Belden a top manufacturer?

Yes, Belkin make top quality products.  Make sure you are doing an apples to apples comparison. The cable specified may not have an exact Belkin match. Check that.

You got the name wrong, John.  Belden, not Belkin.  Belden has been a major international wire and cable manufacturer for as long as I can remember.  Note that AV companies often add their own profit margin to the price.

Belden not Belkin.  Belkin make products (generally good stuff), Belden make cables.

Belden is good.  See  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Belden_(electronics_company)

Thanks - just a typo on my part.  Belden is good
