Specific Interconnect Recommendation

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

Hi Guys,

 

I am looking to change my DAC>Amp interconnect to something that will fit the space better. Basically, I currently have RCA>RCA interconnects of good quality and the cables are extremely hard and do not really bend nicely to fit the space behind my screen. Also, the connectors themselves are pretty big and it is hard to fit them between the amp andd the wall. 

 

What I am looking for is either angled RCA connectors with a good cable or something that woulld solve the problem in some other way. 

 

Here is a photo of how my desk is set up:

It looks like a cheap adapter can solve your problems and you don't even need a new cable!

That is a great idea. I have to have a look and see if anyone sells something of good quality. I do not want to couple the $80 cabe with a $2.26 adapter ;)

TBH, adapters don't make a difference as long as they work.

Still, I do not want to compromise a $3000 system by using a poor quality adapter.

True. An $80 cable is probably not good enough for a $3000 system though.

Not to pay more than $100 for an interconnect.

I believe in cables so in a $3000 system, maybe $500 would go into cables.

Good for you. I have 3 cables in my system - USB, optical and RCA, so spending $500 on them in a $3000 setup would be unwise, as there are still things that can be improved in other places.

I thought there should be someone making good quality adapters like this. Monster have them as well, but they are out of stock while ViaBlue was availablle in my country.
