Cable characteristics? - Page 2

post #16 of 24
Thread Starter 
Does anyone know of a cable that they have had good sucess at a non-exorbitant price ? My hope is that I can find a known good cable and from there I can see if its just my ears, setup or the cables I had been using. And going back to a prior post it does sound like a cable forum question but I am really trying to look at this as a science.

mogami cables have been reliably constructed and I have never had a change in sound characteristics when using them for interconnects or headphone cables. I typically build my own using mogami guts, and switchcraft or neutrik connectors - never had an issue.

I'm partial to Blue Jeans Cables.  No nonsense, good quality cable selection at reasonable prices.  Seems like very little snake oil there.


I'll recycle this link also, it's a good read about wiring.

+1 for Blue Jeans

I ordered a short AES/EBU cable from them last week and had it in Toronto two days later for less money than local dealers wanted

Monoprice is even cheaper for the same thing.

I always liked mono for hdmi and cat5-6 cables so I decided to buy 2 of their cheap audio cables for like $15 total. I don't expect much out of them but give me something else to judge.

I got 2 monoprice cable and I really should have looked more closely. I just assumed they were 4 conductors. The premium was only 2 conductor and the cheap one was 3. I decided to recable with some cat5 cable and they sound good, but the right ear seems to slightly fatigue me. Is there any ideas on that? Longer wire, ground/audio switched.. etc ? Keep in mind this is my first full re-cable ever. I got some 3% silver rosin core and it goes on like butter and super strong. Can anyone think of some cheap 4 conductor wire that you can easily split ?

This is the premium cable from monoprice. Something like this but 2 conductors per wire. You can easily cut down the middle and split them so it stays insulated.
