    Affordable high quality interconnects

    Post by ramon68 on Sun Jul 17, 2011 3:54 pm

    I thought this topic had been discussed, but my search on the forum didn't pull up anything. So, does anybody have a recommendation for rca or xlr interconnects?

    Hi,

    Check out both Signal Cable and Blue Jeans Cable. (links below) Both companies offer high quality cables for reasonable prices. I have cables here from both companies that I use every day.

    Blue Jeans Cable

    Also check out the Audioquest Black Mamba II interconnects. Very high quality RCA connectors on the ends. I use these on my ST-120 between my CD player and the amp using the stepped attenuator on the ST-120 to control volume.

    I use Kinber Timbers throughout. Also like the VH-Audio fine silver wire DIYs. Just finished 3 sets with slightly different construction. Further discussion here: http://dynacotubeaudio.forumotion.com/t815-interconnect-cables-passive-pre-st120-tube-amp

    I say make your own!

    For the price of Kimber Cables you can buy PURE silver wire to make DIY cables that will blow away consumer stuff.

    Here's a great project for DIY pure silver cables.

    Yep - Most cables are way overpriced and the hype associated with big $$$ cables just won't go away. Below is the link on the "Monster cable vs. cables made from coat hanger wire". Read it an have a good laugh ..

    Roy,
    Deep Surplus must have run out of the 5 foot cable, the 5 foot cables were about 30 cents each. I bought a bunch and use them without any problems. Deep Surplus will get them back in stock again.

    If they sold the 2 foot cables for 20 cents each, what did they pay for them? 5 cents... Very Happy
