How bad could these cables be?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I was looking for some short RCAs to connect my incoming Schiit Magni and Modi DAC/AMP, to be used with a pair of AKG K550s at work, being fed about 70% 256kbps AACs from iTunes Match, and 30% local ALAC files.   To be sure, my work environment is not a critical listening setup, but even with 256kbps files and NO DAC/AMP, the AKGs sound pretty awesome.  

 

I ordered the PYST cables from Schiit, but last night I saw these on eBay, which are probably nothing special, but again, the source music isn't perfect.  And they're not red like the PYST, which I find kinda ugly.  I've also seen that the PYST need to be tied together to prevent the top unit from tipping up.  Not ideal. 

 

For $10 shipped, they can't be great, but given the source and the setup, how bad can they really be?  Any guesses?

if they work, they are great as far as I'm concerned. Cables don't tend to move much and they're not easily damaged when placed on a desk.

They look pretty decent to me. And they do say "premium" in the title. wink.gif

Those connectors remind me of a style that Monster used to use - they're kind of a pain to attach/remove (once they're on, they're ON), but like parall3l and matt said - if they work, they work. smily_headphones1.gif
