Cable Management

I'm looking for a way to organize my cables behind my system neatly, Has anyone solved this clutter? I have more cables behind my system then Kellogg's has cornflakes. There's gotta be a better way,
Hi JMO, My cables are so stiff and big, I have to pull my rack out to fit them. There really is no way to organize them if you have ones like mine. I try to place them nicely so they dont pull out or interfere with anything. Take a look at my system for my organized mess. Each one is carefully placed. Really...
Cable management, i.e. making them neat and tidy one next to the other, is actually not conducive to good sound. Basically you don't want any cable running parallel to any other. You expecially want to separate power cables from anything carrying a signal. If you have to cross cables, then do so at right angles.

In this case, messy is best.

Hi Joey,

We have the same cables and I'm using a Salamander twin 40 rack so I have double the trouble. I have cables coming from my right & left it's actually cable madness. :O)

Bob, I may have to use the right angle theory. Thanks guys.
Hey guys, I made some headway last night, neat & tidy will never happen. I now have a well setup organized mess...
Synergistic cables do not need to be crossed at 90 degree angles because the active shield protects the cables from these kinds of interference. I surely dont hear any interference! In addition, I've had many sytems and never noticed a difference with this 90 degree rule. So if you dont have any interference I would not worry about it.
JMO, I know what you mean by the cables looking like a can of worms. I ended up putting my amps and cdp on amp stands. This way I can run the cables not only behind the stands but also underneath. Also try some cable lifters if any cables come close or contacting with eachother. BTW, the system does sound better with the equipment near the floor than a 42" rack between the speakers.
i solved the problem by placing all components on the floor, resting on anti-resonant devices and then maple.
By all means follow the advice given by Mr PTM! That wisdom has been around for as long as I've been in audio/sound reproduction(over 30 years). NOT ALL NOISE IS CONSCIOUSLY AUDIBLE. That's why the differences power conditioners make are sometimes hard to describe: They've removed things that you weren't even aware of. Hum and other noises are are only part of the potential problems. There are magnetic fields around any cable conducting AC signals that can induce voltages/fluctations/distortions in any other cable in close proximity. The various shielding and braiding techniques are good, but none are 100% cures for the possible problems.

My Ridge Street Audio cable risers arrived on Friday they help out a great deal and also improved my entire sound stage. I decided to get control of that can worms I removed all of the cables and reinstalled them again. This time I had a plan I took my time and laid things out nice and neat without the worms.

I hope everyone has a safe holiday weekend.

Enjoy your music Mr J!

Thank you. :>)
Do you group 12vdc Trigger Cables with the power cords, or with the ICs?
