    Default New Cables

    Hi All,

    Over the past few weeks I've been experimenting with assorted cable types and plugs. I've taken advice and recommendations from multiple people with varying results.

    By chance, I seem to have stumbled across a combination of cable and plug which, in my opinion, is the best I've heard yet.

    Change of plans, won't be going "commercial" with these.

    Information purposes only.

    Solid silver on the link but they do copper and silver plate.

    I have silver plated.

    Solid silver sounds potentially like a damn nice plug, and on something that appears very much like the excellent Eichmann silver bullet type plugs. The pins look the same too

    I'd totally recommend the silver plated plugs. They are a step above the MSAUDIO plugs in build quality and strain relief

    I agree Oli about silver plated plugs, I have them on all my cables and indeed my plug sockets are silver plated too! Makes a difference to be sure as will soon hear!

    The plugs look just like the MS Audio plugs, but with a slightly differently shaped housing.

    AECO make the star shaped connection for MS Audio. The body is metal in construction but has a metal reduction ring to provide much better strain relief. They are superior in feel and finish BUT I couldn't really tell any difference between the MS Audio and AECO in terms of sound. Probably because there is no difference in actual connection materials.

    Personally, I think that in a market flooded with so many cable choices you will struggle to be able to get yours out there on the open market.
