    Default Unterminated cable

    I want to make up a couple of interconnects possibly 2 pairs at 1m each. Any recommendations or sources, had a look on the interne5 auction site but didnít really see anything. Nothing at ridiculous prices

    Ridiculously high (expensive), or ridiculously low (cheap)?
    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?

    1. RG316/u Use 2 lengths per side, just use the core rather than the screen.
    2. Klotz MC5000
    3. Klotz AC110

    Why? True you will halve the capacitance per unit length, but the screen is silver plated copper, whereas the core is plated steel.

    To the other cables you have suggested that are available 'off the drum', I would add (amongst others)

    RG 58C/U, or RG 58C/U-01
    RG 59C/U (particularly for digital interconnects)
    RG 174
    RG 223
    URM70 (also for digital)
    Gotham GAC-1
    Gotham GAC-2 (for balanced interconnects)
    Van Damme XKE

    and

    Sommer 'Carbcable'

    Well not ridiculously high just a source or recommendation for general good cable at say £5. - £15 or miore if it’s something really spe@cial. But I am not a believer that expensive means good. I just make an opinion once it’s in place, but not been doing diy for a while and looking for good suppliers or products

    All of the cables suggested above shouldn't cost more than £2/metre.
