I have been thinking of getting the Van Den Hul D501, and have been in the the past like thinking that cheaper cables were not even worth looking at.
Recently i have used a few cheap van damme cables, despite the low cost
were not bad. I have read around here on the forum and Mogami seems
popular, and the best thing i can get the 2534 here in Australia online
for only 3.99/meter. There also is the 2549 which is good.
The quad star layout of the 2534 is a bit confusing in ways of
terminating. It could have lower noise than the 2549 or better suited
for a turntable interconnect.
I currently have a diy 30awg silver wire and (not the best shield - like
the thick spiral on the van damme and mogami cables. I am thinking also
copper is good all around since the arm and headshells are copper
Which Mogami would suit, sure i can find the 2549 here also
The Technics SU-V9 has 2 phono interconnects. I just use a MP110 cart so
its MM. Its by no means a bad cart. I also have other turntables one
with a Empire 2000Eiii. Its a diy cable also and headsells - i managed
to get a very thick sheild for that cable. I do like the sound of the
It would be more expensive to copy the empire phono interconnect vs the already made Mogami cables.
I cant recall but i think i did the shield on the turntable end (
straight wire from turntable no rca plugs) and also the rca end to the
amplifers rca sockets
The factory internal cable is shielded both ends with the wire attached at the input pcb and spiral to the rca sockets
