I'd like to make phono interconnects for my MM cart turntable. I need your advice on the wire and RCA plugs. Candidate for the wire: Cardas 1x21.5 coax or Canare
RCA plugs (affordable and compact) the problem is the Eichman bullet plugs I tried are too large and too tight. I am wondering if the plug is important in this application, at all. If so, I can choose from: Switchcraft 3502 Rean Neutrik profi
or maybe you can recommend....
And finally, how important is gold plating on the plug?
If we're talking phono cables, silver over copper or silver (fragile) all the way. Depends how bright you want it to sound. Connex is a great connector for the money. I personally like gold plated, I've also had silver plated rca's.
