2m Phono connection.

Recommended Posts

Hey all, 

 

I’m looking to move my TT away from my speakers/HiFi gear And place on its own rack... Is a 2m shielded phono interconnect too far? Am I better just placing the phono amp close to the TT and run a longer shielded stereo interconnect from phono amp to the stereo amp? Or is it going to make FA difference which ever I choose. 

*context = I’m not looking for audiophile/purist sound, just wondering if I can practically avoid degradation of signal by choosing one of the above cable run options*

 

Thanks,

TCG

The 2 metre phono interconnect can work for MM cartridges.  Make sure it's good quality shielded, and you need to factor in the capacitance for the cartridge loading.  The cartridge loading is probably key to keeping the sound quality.  

 

That said, putting the phono preamp near the TT and running the a longer interconnect to the amp is probably better.  The signal runs you should keep short are the lowest level signals.

Thank you, exactly the guidance I was looking for.

I've done this and it worked very well.
