Tonearm cables next league above Silver Breeze

Hello all,

I would like to know what would be an upgrade over the Silver Breeze tone arm cable with WBT's. I am looking at the Nordost TYR, Audience phono MC low, or kimber Kable 1234 silver.

Equipment is Aesthetix IO Signaturen and Benz LPS .34mv output.
Transrotor Apollon turntable.

I love the sound of the silver breeze, but I think I can reach another level of nirvana with something of even better performance characteristics? Not trying to break the bank, so the cables I listed are pretty much in the price range.

I notice that the WBT'S are very susceptible to improper connection issues, such as hum or channel imbalance when not fully seated and the collar not twisted down to tighten, whereas regular RCA is simply plug and generally plug and forget.

Any suggestions from you tone arm gurus? Thank you.
Hi you have a few options here. I'd suggest Purist Audio Proteus Provectus Praesto or Transparent Reference XL MM2. Here are some comments I have posted in the past:

All are DIN to RCA terminations off the tonearm...When I had my SME 20/2 SME IV.Vi arm, Lyra Skala Cartridge I tried the following cables:

1)Stock SME (think it was some sort of vandenhul
2)Graham IC50
3)Hovland Music Groove
4)Purist Venastas
5)Purist Proteus Provectus
6)Purist Proteus Provectus Praesto

This are in order of preferenence. As you moved through resolution, quietness goes up. The purist cables added some warmth also versus the sliver graham ic50, which I never quite (pardon this) warmed up to. The Hovland was a nice cable for the $$'s. But the Purist Venastas is a significant difference and improvement in nearly all areas. It's like a cartridge upgrade.

Since the SME table, I moved to a GrandPrix Monaco Table with a specially factory wired Tri Planar (current u ii version) that terminates in a DIN connector about 4-6 inches from the base of arm. Lyra Skala or Allaerts MC2 Finish cartridge. The only cables I've tried here are the Purist Proteus Provectus Praesto or a Transparent Reference XL mm2. Again both being din to rca cables.

I didn't mention this above, but the Purist PPP vs the Venastas is a big step up in resolution, beauty in the mids, wonderful clear extended top end, even more quiet...maybe looses just a touch in deep bass extension that the Purist Venastas possesses. The Transparent Ref XL MM2 is very similar to the Purist Proteus Provectus Praesto except it adds the deep bass extension back and it's even MORE quiet, allow more details, imaging clues, to emerge. Maybe a touch warmer also on top...matches a bit better with my Wilson Maxx 3's.

All have grounding wires. I do think it's important to match your cables up here. One less variable. But I am from the camp of using (signal) cable all from one manufacturer.

Hope this 2 cents at least!
My present tonearm(TW Acustic 10.5)has its own internal cable that runs directly to the phono input, however, I used a number of cables with my previous arm, the SME IV.Vi. I agree with Jfrech's comments on the Purist cables. The Proteus Provectus (non Presto version) was clearly the most musically satisfying tonearm cable I ever owned, including the Hovland Music Groove 2, Furutech AG-12, Cardas Golden Reference, Synergistic Research Trigon and Audio Horizons Dimension.
My Vote would be for the Hovland--Pity not made any more --but they do appear S/H

Worth the wait

Have to agree after trying many different DIN to RCA cables the Purist Proteus Provectus Praesto has been the best. An Ocellia DIN to RCA has also proved nice but have still preferred the PPP.
