Does anyone here know where to get phono cables for cheap? I just need some kind of Din to RCA. Nothing fancy, just want decent OFC conductor, maybe some gold plated connectors, so they won't corrode. Anyone have any recommendations... i'm talking under 30$ here.

come on! Anything? These turntable manufactures must offer replacement cables for there stuff. I'm not looking for an "upgrade cable" just a cable period, one that that transfers the signal, and that's it.

The DIN to RCA cables are usually upgrade parts for separate tonearms, as integrated tables almost always have a dedicated cable (that doesn't connect via DIN, so their replacement cables wouldn't work). There just simply isn't a market for a low cost cable like this. If the Rega arms use a DIN connector, you might see a Rega dealer about a replacement cable (Those arms, partcularly the RB250, sell for little enough that the cable might be reasonably priced).

If that doesn't work, about the only way I can think of to get one at $30 is to buy the cable, RCA plugs and DIN jack separately and make one.

You are gonna have to make one for yourself.All the parts including the cable are available from Markertek.I don't see it costing more than $25.00 dollars.

how does the ground wire work? I wouldn't know where to solder that. I've only DIY-ed some magnet wire interconnects.

Also, which wire would you recommend to do this with? I've heard low-capatence is the way to go with moving-magnet stuff.

Tim, if you're still looking, there's a set on eBay, ending in about two-and-a-half hours. Sitting at less than $35 now, though you'll have to pay shipping from the UK.

And here's another one, real short, made by B&O. Two available, ending in over a day.

And here's another, same as the first one I posted, ending in over two days.

And here's one from Naim, ending in about four days.

Whoa, okay, check out eBay user david**laine's auctions. He apparently is the phono RCA-DIN warehouse.
