Short or long?

Prev Next

There's talk again on the forums about long vs. short connecting cables. It's an age old question, like the chicken and egg.

Long interconnects and short speaker cables? Perhaps the opposite. Arguments in both directions abound.

For years I remained in the long speaker cable, short interconnect camp. It was logical and made great engineering sense to me. After all, at the end of the day I am an engineer first, an audio nutjob second (though many would argue the point).

Power amplifiers have far better ability to drive complex loads than a preamp or DAC. End of story. Only, for some reason I have to admit I might have been wrong. No, let me correct that. I was wrong, but I don't understand why.

It wouldn't be the first time, it's certainly not going to be the last.

Starting with tomorrow's post I thought we'd open up one of those long winded discussions on the subject. You know, the ones some of you love and others hate?

Onward into the blackness of the cable morass.
