Interconnect RCA Cables between Preamp to Poweramp


Does it matter what kind of RCA cables connect between preamp to poweramp?
I tried it with Andioquest Golden gate and my older cables like XLO Signature 3. They both sound pretty much the same. I wonder if I use a pure solid silver cable will hear a difference?

Anyone heard of zavfino cables from Canada?

What you are hearing is the cable. What component is at either end is irrelevant. As is what the cable is made of. Look for reviews that talk about how a wire sounds in terms of what you would like to have. Because when you buy that, that is what you will have, regardless of what you use it with.
What would you recommend to connect the McIntosh C52 preamp to a tube power amp using RCA?
Let me guess Synergistic?
Verion Triaxials! I still have five pairs!
So from your experience, does it matter using a regular basic rca cables like those cheap audioquest compare to a mid grade cables since this is just a connection from the preamp to poweramp
there is no thing as “ just a connection “....

Tim @boxer12 on this board makes a well reviewed yet affordable cable. Give those a critical listen. Oh, ya....they measure well,also...
When I needed to add some new ICs I bought 5 pairs of AQ Silver Extreme from HCM. $90 a pair. They originally listed at $400 a pair! 
I had Chris @VH  Audio make me a 1.5meter pair of cables to go from my preamp to power amp.  Nothing I heard came close to what I bought from Chris.  I believe it was a CU Twist cable with KLI RCA plugs on both ends.  My cost shipped was $399 
What about using pure solid silver cable for the connection?  
Get a real cable look at PURIST NEPTUNE or other less expensive PURIST cables.Solid silver can be thin and bright depends on the company.

Chris, great guy, awesome products.

And there is a budget model of the liquid metal audio cables and it can be purchased for just less than that $399. 

So one can try out liquid metal to see if there really is something there or not. And it’s fully refundable.

In my opinion and the experience of many (meaning, the people who have tried them in their systems) in one critical easily heard respect or way... it will exceed ’wire’ at any price (including $25k 1m ’wire’ cables) and will exceed most any cable priced anywhere near it, in the rest of it’s attributes.

It is the most hand made cable in the world with the deepest most unique physics, science, and lore involved. This is 21ft century technology where the science is still arriving..it is still being discovered across multiple disciplines in physics.....and the others, all the wire...is pretty well wholly 19th century in comparison, technologically speaking. Literally. Locked in, peaked out.

It was priced the way it is... as a gateway drug.

First dose is nearly free...with the 30 day right of return trial. And full value toward upgrades in the case of return in the 30 day window.

I’m always surprised that more people don’t try it out. What’s not to like?
Where can I order one and try it out ?  Can you send me info please.
The performance of audio cables is more about the time-domain dependency of the signal through the audio band than on the factors of simple attenuation, resistance, or the concept that we just need to achieve low resistance, capacitance and inductance to design a good cable.
Solid copper for more a more warm sound, silver for more high end extension...generally speaking.
+1 for Teo Audio liquid metal cable.

No risk to try them out and hear how they sound in *your* system.

No affiliation, just a satisfied customer.
Does anyone heard of this brand name Zavfino based in Canada?

great product, all kinds of reasons to look at their cables.
Also Steve, at audio sensibility. I like to mention that his familiarity with OCC is actually familial....
So, I come to your house with $100,000 worth of cables, give you the spiel of how great they are, backed up by all the “white papers” all presented in exotic hardwood boxes, you are impressed.  While I’m there, I’ll disparage all the cables you currently own.  I’ll install these impressive cables while waxing poetically about how the emotions of the artist are freed for the first time ever.  Then before we listen, I divulge all the famous people who have dumped their cables for my brand.

Now, I have you all primed for the best listening experience of your life.

Here is the fun part.  The music sounds like crap.  I know it, and you know it.  However, neither of us is willing to admit to it.  Because of the exorbitant price and my eloquent presentation you are likely to express a very positive response to my demonstration even though you are not emotionally involved in the music.  You then try to rationalize the disconnect between what you are hearing and the pedigree of my cables.  This could be the “accuracy “ axiom.  For the first time ever, you are hearing exactly what is in the recording.  But ???

The reality comes down to this, my cables really are the best but only in my system and for my ears.  
Very few questions such as yours, have ever or will ever have a consistent consensus of OPINION.  Therefore, research those products within your budget and try as many as you can.

Remember, different is different, not necessarily better.  Give the Zafino a try and listen.  My opinion or anyone else’s is ultimately irrelevant to your question regarding a cable brand.  
I hope this short analogy helps with your question.

ps I’m not a cable manufacturer.




I like Silnote cables.Well made and reasonably priced. Silver will emphasize the leading edges and highs and copper is warmer. I think Silnote achieves both without leaning too far either way.
As a matter of personal taste since I have mostly tubed components, I have a mixture of silver and copper throughout.ZenWave ribbon are my favorite silver cables.
@rhljazz,   I just placed the order last night.  They shipped it out today.  Once I get it next week,  I will test it out and report.
I’m looking to upgrade my rca I/C. Read the raves about Teos here. Sounded too good to be true for the price - and it was in my system, My xlo sig 3 are significantly better than the Teo. The Teos were closer to the MIT sl 26 I use in a second system. Just one listener’s experience.
