Thread: Phono Cable

  1. #1

    Phono Cable

    Now I have my integrated set, I'm thinking of upgrading my photo cable (Technics 1200GR). I switched from the cable that came with the TT to Blue Jeans (to have a shorter length) and there was no difference in sound (which I did not expect any...I just did not want any downgrade in sound). I'm not an exotic cable person. The ZU Audio EVENT phono cable set looks like a winner at about the price I would like to pay EVENT-Phono | Zu Audio | Hi-Fi audio speakers and cables hand built in the USA. Any other good suggestions? Shielding is very important due to the house I live in.

    I use Chord Company Epic cables on all my separates. They have great shielding that is needed these days with so much WiFi mush in the air.

    2nd choice would be Wireworld Silver Eclipse 8, not quite as resolving as the Chord but still excellent.

    I agree about all the wifi -electronics interference in the air. I'll check out the Chord Co cables which look fantastic.

    Thanks for the advice. Hopefully my latest editions look better since I'm using a new cable between my card reader and computer: www.arcpictures.com

    Are you using Chord speaker cables as well?

    No, I use Kimber Kable 4TC. I have never found anything to beat the sound of the Kimber speaker cables for the price.
