    Default Proposed Upgrades - Whole System

    Afternoon guys.

    I’m putting a list together for the system ancillaries and wondered if I could get some input and steering in the right direction (if needed) on the below items. For the older gear I am trying to make sure the “upgrades” are more in keeping with the original design, hence the reason for wanting to go with rhodium plated over gold.


    Furutech FI-1363 (Cu) Copper Mains Plug
    Furutech FI-11 (Cu) IEC Connector
    Furutech FP-TCS21 Mains Power Cable


    Trio KA-6000: Furutech FP-901
    Pioneer M-90: Furutech FP-900

    Graphic Equaliser

    Technics SH- 8055: Furutech FP-900

    CD Player

    Nakamichi MB-1: Furutech FP-900


    Trio KT-8005: Furutech FP-901

    Interconnect/Phono/RCA Cable

    Van Damme Shotgun Audio Twin Interconnect (Sapphire Blue)
    WBT-0152 Cu Nextgen RCA Plug


    Celestion Ditton 44: Cardas CCBP
    Monitor Audio PMC 705: WBT-0705 Cu

    Speaker Cable

    Van Damme UP-LCOFC (6mm)
    WBT-0610 Cu Banana Plugs
    WBT-0661/-0681 Cu Sandwich Spade

    I never quite understand using rhodium which costs so much and does not conduct as well as copper

    Are you talking about the choice of using the Furutech FP-901 with the Trio amp and tuner? If you are, it’s not because of the coating, it’s down to what would look appropriate.

    It’s the same reason I don’t like seeing gold binding posts on vintage cabinets and want to use the Cardas CCBP on my Celestion Ditton 44.
