Music Lovers:


I splurged on a new mid-range CD player (Marantz SA8004).


If I have $50 to spend on a new set of RCA Interconnects, what should I get?


Thanks for your suggestions!

Order up some of these and you will have lots of money left over.

You can even get the 6ft version for less than 50 cents more. I have some of those $50 RCA's that you are thinking about getting. I got them for a huge discount. I use them along with the Monoprice RCA's for my dedicated amps and there is no difference in sound. The Monoprice cables have nice connectors and nice shielding. Just as nice as the more expensive ones that I own.

A bit overpriced, but they look nice, very flexable, connections aren't too tight, excellent quality, and they get them to me overnight. As far as the sound? Exactly like every other cable I have ever used. Perfect.

I agree, these are really nice cables. More than you need to spend, but they are quality and look nice.

Oops, I lied (sort of), I'm only using the MIT EXp1 interconnects for my Oppo BD player now. I upgraded the interconnects on the Luxman CD/SACD player to MIT Shotgun MA interconnects about a month ago.


BTW Lodef, I would be interested in what your reference system consist of. Send you a PM.

Step into a studio and you will Switchcraft or similar patch cables used in the effects racks etc and these cables average about 10.00 ea and are equipped with TSR plugs.


No cables found in a studio will be the audiophool esoteric WalletDrainer series. The reason is simple: the REAL engineers KNOW what the signals are and what affects them , and it AIN'T the cables.


If I was a dishonest person and relied on the gullibility of some folks to 100% false claims about mega buck cables, I could sell my own series and make an easy buck.


Don't forget the wooden knobs and cable lifters. Perhaps wrapping the cryogenically treated cables in a nice thick Egyptian cotton comforter will strike a balance between the super cold and the warm and cozy feel so the soundstage opens to a broadway size stage with the natural resonance of a limestone cavern.


I just KNOW you will hear a difference. I hear this can even change the key a song is played in if the wrapping is done juuuust right.

Yup, I have the old trusted Terminator 2 series. I have tried other brands over the years, some even more expensive but I always end up going back to them so now I don't even bother to replace them anymore.

I run those cables in my system. I also run the matching coax, optical and HDMI cables. They look very nice and are well made. As William stated, they sound like every other cable.

You absolutely should not. MIT is poor-quality overpriced crud.


If you want broadcast studio reference cabling, go with Belden or Canare sold by bluejeans.


Disregard the anti-science trolls.

If you try the MIT's, then it would be interesting to know what your impressions are. I would trust your own judgement, and not let anyone here discourage you from trying new things in your system.
