My current phono cable is a bit damaged. So in the comming 6 months I would like to replace it. I need and RCA to RCA phono cable. Right now I have a Cardas Hexlink series golden five.
Taking budget into account I think I have narrowed it down to these 3 cables.
Nordost Blue Heaven Leif or Heimdall 2 but that one might be out of budget. Kimber TAK-Cu Harmonic Technology Crystal Copper
These are all more or less within budget. I am a bit weary that the Kimber might be to much like the Cardas not bad but it smothers the dynamics a tad. The Nordost might be a bit clinical. I used to have Reddawn II speaker cables and I traded them for NBS active IV since these were IMHo more natural sounding. But I heard the new Nordost are a bit less analytical. About the Harmonic Technology, I knew someone whose system was not unlike mine and he used a Harmonic Technology phono cable.
