RCA cable question

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
What type of difference will it make if i upgrade the stock rca cables that came with my cd player? right now my system is:

sony scd-c222es -> rca cable-> mg head otl -> beyer dt831

just wondering if anybody has a similar setup and would be curious to hear how upgrading the rca cables has changed the sound. the rca cable i have right now isn't very long so i wouldn't imagine that it would adversly affect the sound all that much.

Hi tone, and welcome to Head-Fi. You have a great system there with the interconnects being your weak link, if you're using the stock ICs. There is a great thread in the Cables Forum regarding budget interconnects, check it out here: Best $100 interconnects

In fact, I am moving your thread into that forum. Hope this helps.

You would be surprised by how much of a difference cabling makes. I went from Monster Cable --> Radioshack Gold ---> Kimber ---> DIY Silver Shark w/ WBT plugs, and each step made a large difference in transparency, blackness/noisefloor, and tonality. The DIY Silver Sharks just had a tonal rightness that the other cables couldn't match. It was like all the instruments were not properly tuned with the other cables in comparison.

thanks for the response guys,

from the thread JMT pointed me to it looks like the outlaw cables are a good bang fer your buck cable (i'll have to check out the silver sharks next).

i know when i switched from the cheapo guitar plug cable to a monster guitar to amp cable it made a world of difference in the quality of the sound. i guess its time to replace those rca cables now. my poor wallet!
