Interconnect Cables

I would very much like to upgrade my interconnect cables. The problem is that the number of available cables is almost infinite. It would be nice is MASSDROP would offer high quality 1 meter RCA interconnects

I wonder if experience placebo or not, but I have been able to tell the differences in cables for some time. usually its not a huge difference, but sometimes that little extra can bring a bit extra to the listening experience.

I did an experiment once with two friends. One into music like I am and the other couldnt give two bits and felt that we were being weird nerdy people. Used a modi 2 uber with a burson soloist sl and the oppo pm3.

long story short. even the friend who thought we were nerds couldnt believe her ears, because she heard differences and was actually describing the differences between then. and she had no idea which cable was which.

and the price was not a factor. the most expensive cable was actually seen by all three of us as the worst of the bunch. Blue Jeans cable was seen as the most well rounded cable, a cheaper cable was considered a great value for its performance.....

if you can audtion in your system and dont hear a difference then buy whatever is well constructed and meets your needs at a great price and be happy.
Hi there

Why do you feel you need to upgrade cables? Are you unhappy with your current sound? I would say cables are really last resort any shielded cable will be pretty much perfect. I would say just make sure the cables are the shortest you can manage and save the extra money on more important upgrades if you feel your system is lacking something.
Just buy the best looking cables to you. Cables do make a small difference, but not enough to spend any more than 5% of your total system worth.
Why do you need to upgrade? As far as quality goes in today's market as long as the shielding is adequate the audio difference should be pretty much imperceptible.
