I have a Luxman PD441 turntable with a Moerch DP-6 tonearm. My tonearm cable is a straight DIN Furutech AG-12, which is nicely made but I can't comment on its sound quality as I've never used any other tonearm cable with this deck.
The problem is, the Luxman's chassis sits quite low. The Furutech cable is not flexible enough to hang down from the chassis and out the back of the turntable without putting pressure on the surface that the turntable sits on. I DIY'd a solution with some aluminium pucks to go underneath the turntable's feet, which raise it up by about 6cm - enough for the inflexible cable to come out from the bottom of the turntable and not put pressure on the surface it sits on.
I'm not a fan of how this looks, and in hindsight, I should have just bought a right-angled DIN cable from the start. So now I'm wanting to change to a right-angled DIN cable but don't know where to start. I'm aware that there is a right-angled DIN version of the Furutech AG-12, but I can't afford to spend that much on a phono cable right now. I'm hoping that I can get a right-angled DIN cable for around the price that I might be able to sell the Furutech AG-12 for. One example is the well-reviewed and reasonably priced Audio Sensibility cables from Canada - does anyone have experience with these?
My dilemma is, I'm aware of how well regarded the AG-12 is, and I don't want to compromise sound quality by jumping down to a comparatively 'cheapo' cable. But at the same time, I do really want to change to a right-angled DIN cable for aesthetic reasons.
Would it maybe be feasible for a technician to change the straight DIN to a right-angled DIN? Or does anyone have any right-angled DIN phono cables in mind in the <$450 range that might suit my needs? Or any other solutions??
Thanks for reading!
