Correct, shorter is better, especially on the phono. On MC it is even more important. I have tried short and long with a ARC PH3SE and can always tell the difference.

I used to try and keep phono cable as short as possible (0,5m being sufficient in my system), I was surprised though to find a number of reputable manufacturers offer 1,25m as standard length. At the moment, I am awaiting delivery of a Synergistic Research Tricon for auditioning, Ted Denney actually advised me not to go shorter than 1m with this cable.
