Fact is, the Arm wire guides the smallest signal in the whole System and for Manufacturers the cost saving is important. When Incognito Cable became available for Rega Arm modification, it was very successful. When I met an owner who did the change, everyone was positive about it (better than before).
If it's going to be anywhere, it's going to be the arm cable, isn't it?Given that it was decided in recent debates that cables don't / do make a difference, where do the Wam populace stand with this :sofa:
I had my RB300 rewired by AO. Definite improvement.In my experience it seems to make a dramatic difference (Technics and Rega arms).
I would have thought this is one of the few places where cables could definitely make a difference. You have a very weak signal in a wire that is actually part of the arm attempting to track the signal. The usual argument against silver cables is just to use a thicker copper one and you have the same conductivity but in a tonearm the heavier cable will affect the behaviour of the arm. Shielding the cable has to be worthwhile when the signal level is so low and making a continuous run and removing needless connectors is probably worthwhile as well. I am not claiming it will be hugely audible but it could make a positive difference.I would be grateful if you would explain why and how cost affects the conductivity of the cable.S
I will come right off the fence and say that there was a dramatic improvement when AO rewired my RB300, I had the cart tags to phono straight through wire. Brilliant service from one of the good guys in HiFi.Given that it was decided in recent debates that cables don't / do make a difference, where do the Wam populace stand with this :sofa:
