(Relatively inexpensive) RCA cable recommendations?


Recommended Posts

Does anyone have any recommendations as to interconnect cables to run between my (Wavelength Cosecant) DAC and my (Arcanm) receiver that are a particularly good value for the money? I'd like to spend less than $200 for a 3–6 foot run. Hell, I wish I could get them for free, but …

 

Thanks,

 

Bill

On a related note, did anyone see this? (Scroll to read the actual forum post in gray.)

Hi Bill - I have heard really good things about Blue Jeans Cable. In fact a few people in the industry swear by them and use BJC as their go-to cable. An awesome value indeed.

 

I did see the coat hanger thing a while ago. Scientific by no means, but I did get a kick out of the whole thing.

Hi Bill,

 

Are you a dab-hand at soldering ?

If so, save yourself a lot of money by making up your own cables.

 

I firmly believe that a good quality RF cable is what you need, with low capacitance, PTFE dielectric, and tightly woven braided screen. This will be transparent at audio, but also give excellent RFI immunity.

 

I use such a cable, designated URM-76 (here in the UK), which sells for about £1/m, along with a pair of good quality gold plated phono plugs. Total cost for 2 x 1m lengths is ~ £10 !!

 

Regards,

Chris.
