Re: Mogami Cables


Hi,
Ya have been getting up and rushing to work and just coming home and crashing as the markets are too much to handle. So music and related took a back seat Saikat.

Cardas is great but which one. All may not give u the desired sound. They are damn expensive too so its best to try and satisfy before buying. I have a very old Cardas IC and frankly in my current set up a cheap Supra sounds more detailed and natural while the cardas( as fat and inflexible like a gas pipe) sounds a bit lean.

Re: Mogami Cables

Dinyaar, I am still talking about RCA connectors/jacks only. The cables will be from Mogami (possibly the 2549).

Looking at 4 connectors @max ~$50. Is WBT worth it?

Here's a list of available ones, (http://www.partsconnexion.com/catalog/connectors.html)

VDH (Van den Hul: Advisory Retail Pricelist) is slightly more expensive though.

Edit: Objective 1) is to make an interconnect using decent cables + RCA connectors (and experiment, how much diff do connectors make).

Although, as a bonus, getting info on speaker cables as well...

Re: Mogami Cables

Hi
Actually Oyaide is probably the most respected manufacturer power cables/accessories. Apart from Mogami, Belden and Supra makes some great DIY stuff too. If you really want the ultimate in Japanese high end cables (or pretty much any high end cable) you will have to go to Acrolink. These are built with only high end performance in mind and ofcourse are priced that way too. We have used one for a high end project a while back.

On the RCAs, I dont have spare WBTs around, I do have some higher end Cardas RCAs and Eichammann though but they dont come at the $18 level For the females, the Vampires are better for the money, for the males, WBT, futuretech, cardas will all work. If you want the best go with Eichmann bullets. I will be getting Audio Art RCAs shortly, which are OEMs made by the same shop that makes one of the above (cant say which ) which are great value at roughly $10 or $11 each.

Reignofchaos, I think you heard the Mogami speaker wire right ? or was it only the IC that you heard?



cheers

I tried both... didn't like the interconnect but loved the speaker wire. The speaker wire is amazing value for money.

Re: Mogami Cables

I can vouch for both the WBT 0110s and the 0144s for the copper line. These are above your budget though.

Hi Reign,
I have not checked the interconnects. Only the speaker wire. Great sound. Musical and balanced without a grain of harshness. It is the same wire you mentioned.
Was the interconnect done with the same wire ?

Re: Mogami Cables

if you are asking to choose between one, its Eichmann, provided you can solder well (the gnd pin is very delicate) and you wont keep pulling out the plugs from the components - they need to be a bit warmed to be flexible enough to insert and then the fit is tight to keep experimenting.

cheers

Re: Mogami Cables

The W3103 is a mogami speaker cable (MOGAMI - Superflexible Studio Speaker Cables)

The 2549 I was talking about is being raved about as an interconnect cable (MOGAMI - High Quality Balanced Mic. Cable)

No the interconnect was some other wire. It neither had the tonality nor the resolution of the Usher Rapport. You are absolutely right about the speaker cable. It was absolutely top class. Far better than the Audioquest CV4 I was using.
