Please help me find a good interconnect?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I need a very short pair of phono RCA cables to connect my ODAC to my O2. These units are tiny and a cable no longer than 6 inches should be enough. I never see cables of that length though and I believe most are too stiff to be able to bend back on themselves with such a short length. Has anyone seen anything similar to what I'm looking for?

You could buy the ones that Schiit sells alongside their DAC and amp combos.

 

PYST RCA Cables (6 inches)

http://www.amazon.com/PYST-RCA-Cables-6-inches/dp/B00CICPTHC/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1396789468&sr=8-3&keywords=schiit

 

They're a little steep for 20USD but they're of very very high quality and built extremely solid and would be perfect for you.

Great find! Unfortunately I'm in the UK (unfortunate for all sorts of reasons) and they're not available from Amazon.co.uk. I can get them direct from Schiit but the price including shipping is three times as much. Still, if I can't find anything else it may well be Schiit who get my money.

Thanks again for finding something.

It seems like every time I talk to someone in the UK, they say that they're not able to buy a lot of equipment because it's more expensive there than in the US lol

Well Schiit is made in USA so I guess that's the reason. If I was looking for Linn interconnects things might be reversed. Although I imagine, being Scottish, Linn are sufficiently switched-on to have a distributor in the USA already.

You can also look at Mediabridge, Cables2Go, BlueRigger, Monoprice

Nope, none of those make such a thing either. Thanks for the suggestions though. I know Toxic Cables can probably come up with something but getting info from them is proving somewhat problematic.

That's a great find! They're in the EU too. The cable I'm specifically looking for only comes in 0.5m minimum but I'll drop them an email and see what they can do. Have you used them at all? I wonder what customers say.

Thanks again.

i haven't used them personally but only heard good. Had a few mail exchanged with the owner, very nice guy, but unfortunately i went broke so no cable for me at this time, then sold my universal etc etc....classic :wink_face:

 

But, Poland is the new audio Eldorado.....

Spiral Ears, The Custom Art, Lime Ears...Forza Audio....etc etc

That's good to know. As you can see above Kraken has located a UK supplier of the Pyst cable so that'll do for me. However Forza have a nice looking OTG USB cable I might check out.
