Hi Folks

Thinking of tinkering with interconnects. 

I have a tricked up LP12 playing through a Revelation M. 
Amp is an Arcam AVR850. 
Needs to be 1m long. 
Not ideal placement of components or power/interconnect cables. 
It’s an AV system so there’s centre speaker at the top of the rack
With a surge protected mains bar sat behind it. 
The TT PSU & Rev M are sat on top of the rack directly above the centre speaker & mains bar 😱
Above that is a wall shelf for the TT. 
I’d post a pic but not sure how to do it on this site. 

Sooo, my question is: which GS interconnect would be best from the Rev M to the amp, baring in mind it’s gonna have to cross a lot of mains power & big magnets. 

Currently using Chord Chorus twisted pair interconnects. 

Would be interested in trying out a loan pair. 

What do you reckon guys?

Contact Jon (aka Fatmangolf) and arrange to try some.
There's 3 different flavours in the cable section at the top of the web page, and he might be able to send all 3.

When you try the Lautus try and keep the "bulges" away from big magnets. It is 1.5m so should be sufficiently long enough to navigate the assault course Wink
Not simple enough for Google-Bot to understand...

What do you mean by the bulges in the cable Graham?

Gotta hope an AV speaker has some screening in there. 
Bet it hasn’t though. 
I may add some car type bitumen with thick foil sound deadening to the cabinet. 
Adds mass and to my mind gives it a bit of a Faraday Cage effect from the foil.  Dunno if it would have any effect on the magnetic fields though??

The bulges Graham referred to in the Lautus will be the ferrite filters.Smile
I use a 1.5m Lautus analogue interconnect crossing mains cables etc & have no noise problem.
Nor with the CuSat50 either.

Elevator, Accession, Majestic, Reflex M, Solo ULDE, CuSat & Lautus.

If your interconnects must cross power cables, try to do so at right angles or increase the air gap using a bath sponge or something similar to give a few inches of clearance.
Aside from speakers (and I doubt bitumen & foil will help) transformers in CD/DVD players and amplifiers are also sources of magnetic fields.
Again, air gaps are your friend in reducing their effects.

Hmm. Guess I’m screwed then. 
Got a huge 7 channel amp, BLU-RAY, CD, TiVo, TT PSU & Rev M 
With PSU1. 
Magnets & power EVERYWHERE! All cables platted & squished together behind the cabinet. 

May be trying to polish a 💩 here. 

That being said, I don’t notice any noise. 
None of my interconnects are cheapies. Mostly Chord mid to high end.
