    Shielded interconnect / RCA / cinch cables don't seem to matter

    Archimago tested various RCA cables for their noise performance, and came to the conclusion that it doesn't matter: https://archimago.blogspot.com/2013/05/measurements-analogue-rca-interconnects.html I somewhat had a hard time finding information via the search function here if shielded cables...

    Mogami 2549 vs 2534

    Hi all, I'm going to knock together some interconnects and just wanted to double check as to the reasons one would choose one of these cables over the other. I'm almost positive the real world differences especially in such a short length of cable will be practically nothing and I imagine even...

    Is there likely to be a difference in audio quality between these two balanced-to-unbalanced adapters?

    To use my Sony IER-Z1R with plain 3.5mm sources when I need to, for convenience, I am getting a 4.4mm female to 3.5mm male adapter. Between option 1 and option 2, is there likely to be any difference in audio quality? I obviously don't expect an adapter to add to the quality, but I am concerned...

    Introduction—and thanks for pointing me to Adam Audio (with questions)

    Hello! New member here, although I’ve been lurking long enough to have gained some valuable knowledge. One thing I learned about is the Adam Audio T5V. I was curious, so I bought a pair from my local Guitar Center, and I must say, I am VERY impressed. To me, one of their biggest virtues is that...

    Measured (!) speaker cable difference!?

    Hi Folks, Within the latest speaker-cables yack ("yet another kabels conversation") mostly filled with typical fluff, a rather intriguing piece of data was posted. An ASR member @Balle Clorin presented his old FR (frequency response) measurements of various commercial speaker cables. The...

    Please help with headphones "Balanced Cables"

    So I ended up buying an amp with two 1/4" audio jacks for headphones balanced connection. I have standard cables for HD6xx and K712 pro with the 1/8" jack plus 1/4" adapter. Kindly advice if there are separate "balanced cables" which I would need to buy separately for these two HP's, or would I...

    $1 Million Cable Challenge

    After James Randi passed away a few years ago, the idea of a $1 million cable challenge vanished with him. Until now! In what can only be surmised as amazing showmanship, Dr. Tist of First Run Copper cables has decided to bring the challenge back, but with a twist. Instead of challenging the...

    2.5mm PEEK (your friend for lead-free hotness) stereo connectors?

    My current short IEM cable is a DIY affair incorporating these 2-pin connectors by Eidolic (a new Shenzhen hifi mfg?) to re-terminate a stock cable whose IEM-side connectors failed. Turns out the polymer surrounding the pins (called PEEK) has a really high melting point. Usually soldering...

    Tarun's take on the most controversial subject in audio!

    Best hifi cable explanation I've seen. Finely a comprehensive and sane view on cables. This is definetly worth watching regardless of where you stand on this subject.

    Thing about cables and filters

    I know that the most of the members here laughs first when you hear about the golden cable and the miracle filters. But other than the box like this, most of the other products at least use something gold this and capacitor that. This came up to my mind and was thinking that the measurements...

    Danny Richie Audio Myths on “Electrical Burn In”

    I was going to post this video in “Speakers, Headphones, & Room Acoustics” but he goes into other audio myths midway through and towards the end of the video. A “flat earther” that calls others “flat earthers.”

    Would You Buy Speaker Cables If LCR Testing Was An Option, I Did

    One of my first introductions to ASR was Amir’s article/review titled “when 12 gauge wire isn’t 12gauge”. Ok, I knew that “Reduced Dislocation Density” was probably just cable marketing...but various 12 gauge wires having different measured properties. Yikes! A few months after reading this...

    What interconnects do you use in your systems? What do you think about Van Damme ones?

    Hi I've been reading this forum for around a year. What interconnects do you use in your systems? What do you think about Van Damme ones? I just ordered some ones based on Van Damme instrument cable. I'm hoping they'll be fit for purpose (i.e. long lasting and sufficiently shielded).

    Good/Nice looking cables that don’t break the bank?

    Just wondering what’s out there to boost asthetics. Speaker wire: I use GearIT’s 14awg braided speaker cables in white, think they were ~$30/pair for 15ft, and I’d say they are pretty good. HannLinte is also on Amazon and they look to have some good looking speaker cables. SVS’s SoundPath also...

    UK Advertising Standards Authority vs Chord Company Ruling

    In the UK if there is an advert that you think is false, misleading, offensive etc. you can complain the the ASA, who investigate it, ask for evidence from the company in question and then make a ruling. As you can see someone didn't believe that "magic internet cables" improve sound quality and...
