Budget Balanced Interconnects


I'm looking for a pair of reasonably priced, balanced interconnects to run between a BAT VK30 pream and an ARC VT100mk2 amplifier. Probably need about 3m length. Used or new - doesn't matter, but don't really want to spend more than $300. I'm wondering about Innersound cables, which are really reasonable ($80 up to 10 feet). Anyone know these? In general, I do like the Harmonic Tech truthlink IC's. Can I reterminate a pair of speaker cables into balanced IC's (perhaps add shielding???). Thanks for your input!

will answer one of your questions. That's why the search function in Forums is here on A'gon.
Pardon all, but my search abilities were not up to snuff. It really helps when you choose to search on "match all words" rather than "match exactly". Anyhow, I found the answer I'm looking for at [this thread ]. I'm going to try out the Innersound cables - such a deal!
I tried a set of the Signal Cable "2" interconnect. It runs about 50.00 for 2 ft and 4 bucks for each extra foot. I was amazed at how good it is for that price. It easily blows away Homegrown Super Silver, which I thought was pretty good. It comes with a money back guarantee, so you can't loose. I did comare it to Acoustic Zen Silver Refrence, and it's not that good, but the Zen cables are 20x the price.

Unless you are really pushing for the absolute sound you would be very happy with Signal Cable.

Let us know how you like the Innersounds when you get them!
Canare mic cable (the better one) is amazingly good PRO stuff for peanuts. Doesn't do anything wrong, and is neutral and quite-high rez. Next up is Nordost for more top octave glitz.
I agree with looking at Pro Audio mic cables. Not fancy, but very effective.
The InnerSound XLR cables use professional studio cables, and you can't beat the price!
Hi Peter, small world this place called Audiogon. I just picked up a pair of Nordost Blue Heaven XLR's for about $115 to run between the VK-50SE and the VK-500. I want to see if there will be a significant difference without the adapters. I'll let you know how it sounds. Good luck on your search.
