After much searching and trialing I have finally found a cable which is both affordable and offers the audio characteristics I am looking for. I have now replaced all the interconnects in my system using this cable and the sound is now very clean and neutral. The cable also offers good shielding, and this has lowered the noise floor of the whole system.
The interconnect uses a coaxial type cable with a 7-strand silver plated copper internal core in PTFE dialectic. The cable is low capacitance at 64 pF/m and is ideally suited for phono interconnects, and systems using passive pre-amplifiers. However, it also sounds excellent when used with active pre-amps and other system components as well.
I am making a limited run of these interconnects sheathed in white mesh and terminated with Neutrik Rean phono plugs, as per the following photo. Interconnects are available in 1m and 0.5m lengths.
Prices are listed in the ´price list’ section of the site.
Cables can be made to order for any length, and terminated with a range of phono plugs. Pricing for custom cables will depend on cable length and termination hardware.
