I'm looking for inexpensive interconnect and speaker cables to use with Cambridge Audio integrated amp and CD player. Also, will connect DVD and TV to amp for two channle audio. Any suggestions? Thank you.
Try the Linn Analogue Interconnects; it seems they come free with Linn equipment. They're nicely made, 1.2 metres standard length and directional. The black ones list for $80 but sell online new and used for $40 or less.
I have a Cambridge Audio D500SE CD player connected via JPS Labs Superconductor FX to a JoLida 502B. The change from factory interconnects (simultaneous with changing speaker cable to JPS Labs Ultraconductor) really made a big difference.
I agree with Dlanselm. Higher end Linn gear is perhaps guilty of being outrageously priced (like much in the audio world) but their cables are some of the best deals on the market. If you can't afford Silvers, which are around $160 used (never buy them new), then Rockvirgo's suggestion of Linn black interconnects is a very good one.
Thanks everyone for your suggestions. I have spent over a week surfing through the different cable sites including Blue Jeans Cables, Homegrown, Speltz, Better Cables, Zu Audio, Audio Art, Anti Cable, etc. I may be more confued now then when I started out. Anyway, I kind of like Zu Audio although Linn has been favorably recommended. I remember years ago using the Linn speaker cable (grey) and thought it was a great cable.
Emarcano: The Zu Mobius replacement cable I had for my Sennheiser HD 650's was excellent. I am not familiar with anything else in their line, but these guys definitely seem to know what they are doing.
Try the Esoteric interconnects sold at Parts Express (part # 186-002). At $24.46 a 1m pair they provide some pretty amazing performance. As far as speaker cables go the Dayton 10 ga. (part # 100-028) is very hard to beat for the price ($38.18 for 50 feet).
