Is there a right way to deal with excess cable?

Recommended Posts

As per the title, is there a right (or wrong) way to deal with excess power, analog and digital cables?

 

I've gone as short as I can without limiting myself for future upgrades but I still have 4-600mm of slack in each.

 

I'm curious to know if doing something over another can introduce noise or something else.

 

Thankyou

Not really!  :)

 

But do not coil  the excess length on power & spkr cables - as this introduces inductance.  Simply snake it from side to side.

 

Also a digital cable should not be shorter than 1m.

Sounds perfect, to me.  :thumb:

This thread is about dealing with excess cables. 

To continue the debate on cable lengths - I've split the off topic posts to The Great Audio Debate subforum.

Please try and stay on topic.

If the cables are bundled to tidy them up, keep the power and audio cables (eg interconnects) separate - never bundle them together.
