+2 for the Audio Sensibility Impact SE. Recently bought one (also balanced) expecting a minor improvement over the Jelco 506 Balanced tonearm cable I was using and was shocked at how much better it was than the Jelco.
The Jelco had (like the Audio Sensibility) also been cryoed and burned in so it has more to do with the wire and/or connectors that Steve is using. And the Jelco was no slouch; it replaced and bettered a custom tonearm cable that Gene at Takefive Audio built for me using Cardas wire and a Cardas DIN and Vampire XLR's I believe.
The Audio Sensibility is ridiculously good for the price. I just ordered another one for the mono half of my setup.
To nycjlee and hdm,
I took both your recommendation and ordered the AS Impact SE phono cable with the burn-in time option Will let you all know how it works out.
It has to be better than the RCA phono cables that came with the U-Turn table which look like those antique IC's packed with 1970's era cassette decks
I just purchased an Audio Sensibility Impact SE Phono Cable and received it last week. It was a replacement for the stock cable that came with my Pro-Ject Debut Carbon Esprit DC SB. I paid extra for the break-in service. The AS cable was noticeably superior to the stock cable from the first listen. Just overall better sound. More articulate bass and treble as well as better spatial definition. I felt it was a GREAT value, especially with the favorable exchange rate right now.
