Dear Friends, @atomicbob and I exchanged a few messages about cables lately, and some idea spawned from that. Bob would like to get some feedback on some interconnects cables he has been using and measuring. He offered to loan a pair of those, to test in my system. As I am located in EU, this loaner is open to EU Friends and contributors, but maybe Bob will want to open a separate loaner in NA for additional feedback. A few things are still in the air though : A. What would be the preferred length for the cables ? 1 ft / 2 ft / 3 ft ? The package will include 4 cables : 2 ft XLR and RCA 3 ft XLR and RCA B. What would be the right amount of time to test the cables ? In any case, cables would first reach my place before being dispatched to people in the loaner. Once this is concluded, cables would have to come back to my place, before being shipped back to Bob. Since I'm using balanced connection in my system, the preferred plug is XLR. No idea if there is a possibility to include both XLR and RCA. Please keep in mind this will require some sort of organized feedback posting. List of participants : 1. Fenchbat, 2/3ft XLR / Package shipped on July 12 to @m17xr2b 2. @m17xr2b UK, 2/3ft RCA preferred, XLR ok. 3. @Serious DE, 2/3ft XLR (package received on august 19th) 4. @jayeshrc NL, 2/3ft EDIT July 12th : Please insure the package for the equivalent of 250€ when you ship it. Thanks. EDIT July 22nd : as per Bob's indication, insurance level is now set at 40€.
