  7. Hi all. I have a weird room that doesn't lend itself to the usual "gear between 2 speakers" layout, but rather would be much better with my gear on a sideboard to the sided the room. Bigger is that this would take speaker cable across a door, however luckily I have made some allowances in the walls, so I should be able to run cable in conduit under the floor and bring it out through the wall. What I'm wondering is whether a different cable length for each speaker would matter? I have one side that would reach (a 2.5m pair is currently in use - Osborn Silverlink cables to Osborn Epitomes), but the other would need to be at least 5.5m! I scared about the potential price of a matched 6m pair of cables! Ouch! Also, are there cable types (copper vs silver for example) which lend themselves to longer lengths in terms of sound quality? Cheers, Mat
  8. Hello has anyone experience with the cables of Achtung Audio, they make solid silver cables for a reasonable price. And if not do you have experience with pure silver cables? I would like to know more. Cheers

  19. Hi again everyone, and hope you're enjoying the day! On my current setup journey, I've now got my turntable going in my new system, and it's already sounding great! It certainly needs some tweaking, and I reckon I could improve things greatly with a few small changes (not to mention getting some record cleaner! Suggestions welcome on that topic!). So, I have: Pro-ject 6.1 turntable with Ortofon MC10 cart > Creek Audio OBH-9SE phono stage > Wyred4Sound STP-SE pre I was wondering about experiences with cabling for starters? I had a look here, but I'm interested in silver vs copper, long vs short, RCA vs XLR - that sort of thing. http://www.stereo.net.au/forums/index.php/topic/58011-great-cheap-phono-interconects-have-to-let-you-guys-know/?hl=interconnects I will likely soon get some of these (silver interconnects) to go dac>pre and cd>pre http://stagersound.com/silver/order.htm So perhaps I should get some for the phono too? I have also started a thread about the "balanced" nature of phono signals. In my setup, I could: 1. Go RCA phono >phono stage> pre 2. RCA phono>phono stage> then RCA to XLR pre 3. Have the tone arm reward and go fully balanced (but would need a new phono stage.... Lastly, as can be seen in pics, I have cheapo cabling with "inbuilt" ground wire. Once a setup is decided upon, what's the best way to do a new ground? Awesome! Mat

  21. Oh harro there! I've been itching to fiddle around with DIY interconnect cables for some time now, having heard how good the Aurealis cables sound when assembled using quality components and some experimentation with geometry. @@gmdb (Geoff @ Aurealis) was very kind in providing loads of advice, suggestions and encouragement and I subsequently purchased four pairs of Aurealis star RCAs featuring gold plated tellurium copper conductors, and two pairs of KLE Copper Harmony RCAs featuring silver plated copper conductors. No brass here baby! I think the Aurealis RCAs are fantastic for $30 per set of four for a well engineered RCA connector. I've heard these up against the ETI copper bullets and couldn't tell the difference, so I was happy to buy some of them for my DIY cables. For the sake of consistency and to simplify the construction process, I sourced some Milspec silver plated solid core copper from Aurealis, and some pure silver and pure copper from A&E Metals in Sydney. No, it's not Neotech UPOCC wire, but it will suffice. All of the wire is 24AWG. The Milspec copper is teflon coated already, but the copper and silver are bare. Accordingly, I purchased some teflon tubing from Element14 to suit. This means that teflon is the only dielectric used on all of these cables. I also had some silver solder from a previous Aurealis order, and a bunch of Techflex and generic expanding sheathing from Element14 to dress things up a bit. Construction-wise, I went very simple - only two conductors with a light twist, and no shielding. The teflon tubing provides a nice consistent spacing between the wires when you lightly twist it. Due to the thin diameter of the completed cable, I used some surplus black silicon tubing to fabricate some 'bungs' to keep the wire nice and snug in the exit of the RCAs, and to provide some meat for the grub screws to compress into. This worked out neatly enough for DIY cables. The KLE Copper Harmony RCAs were used with solid silver wire, whilst the Aurealis copper RCAs were used with the pure copper and silver plated copper. This resulted in three different types of RCA cable which have the exact same construction method, but different materials and different different RCA connectors. Importantly, I haven't used any heatshrink on the interconnects, so they can easily be disassembled if I wish to experiment with different geometries (three wire braid with drain wire, 4 wire braid etc). The KLE/silver interconnects sound lovely so far - I've been using them for about two weeks now. Very clean, detailed and plenty of body. I don't perceive any nasty 'silver' harshness to the sound. I'm looking forward to trying the others soon! I also made up a basic USB A to USB B cable with no +5V line (only data + and - and the ground wire). This sits between the SB Touch and audio-gd DI V3 which is acting as an asynchronous USB converter. The data and earth wires are separated (although it probably doesn't make any difference as there is no +5V line to isolate the data wires from). The data wires are silver and the earth wire is copper, and the USB connectors are gold plated items which were scavenged from a poor innocent USB cable of decent quality. I'm not expecting to hear any difference compared to a basic USB cable, but you never know, especially after I've heard the differences between AudioQuest Cat7 ethernet cables (I kid you NOT!!!) At least they now look 'audiophile spec'. Heck... what can I say, I was bored! All in all, they look clean and tidy, and I'm certainly a fan of simple solid core interconnects with copper conductor RCAs, so I can't wait to compare them all and to tinker with different geometries in future.
  22. I was reading all about Keith Eichmann's new plugs and ICs and such a few days ago and it got me to thinking. I can't argue against anything I've read on his site (check the link below for details) http://kleinnovations.com/kle-innovations-klei-products/klei-harmony-plug/ but I can ask the question "What does it mean to me?". A bit of knowledge is all well and good but if it isn't used for something then it might as well have never been learned in the first place. Now I could buy some of KLEI's products and give them a shot but I don't exactly have any spare cash floating about (and the pic of the copper plug looks like it's silver coated to me so I don't like it) so is there anything else I can do? The answer seems to be "yes" (I say seems to be because I haven't tried it out yet). I can take this 'knowledge' that all copper, or silver, is good and brass/rhodium/gold is not-as-good and reverse it to see if I can DIY an interconnect that sounds significantly worse than a control interconnect. I've still got my old CCI (Cafads Crappy Interconnect) pair, manufactured from thin speaker wire using some old don't-really-know-where-they-came-from RCA plugs that were given to me in a box of old cables by an ex work college. So, after not a particularly large amount of thought, I've left one as standard and cut the other one up into sections and joined those sections again with some big old lumps of brass (actually they're banana plugs from Jaycar, I was going to solder in some brass speaker jumpers at first, but the use of banana plugs requires far less burning of fingers, and I had a few spares lying about, so I settled on them instead) So the signal will have to jump from copper to brass and back 3 times in between components, if this is going to be a significantly bad thing then I should be able to hear the difference between these two interconnects, yes? And if I can't, well, I may just have to try harder.
