Chord Cobra Plus vs Van den Hul "The Name" RCA Interconnects and some speaker cables
Hi there everyone!
I have a pair of wonderful REGA RS3 connected to an AUDIOLAB 8000A and a BERESFORD CAIMAN DAC and I need some interconnects for the DAC. I am currently using some cheap generic professional studio RCA cables, not very good I'm affraid. The sound is very good but I feel I am losing some detail, specially in the mids. I think it can better it as it feels theres something missing. I am going to try changing the cables in my system, before trying recap the AUDIOLAB, as it's getting a bit old.
1. Has anyone ever compared the CHORD COBRA PLUS (or 3) to the VAN DEN HUL "THE NAME", or which should be better or for the price what else should I be looking for?
2.Should I try and look for a step above these, like the CHAMELEON or the D-102 III or "THE WAVE"?
3. Also, I can get AUDIOQUEST's COPPERHEAD for around £40 and the DIAMONDBACK for around the same price as the COBRA, should any of these be a better option? I read somewhere they are a bit fragile.
4.Or maybe should I try and make a DIY clone of the REGA COUPLE cable, using some KLOTZ cable and NEUTRIK connectors for under £30?
5. Has anyone tried any TELLURIUM Q BLUE series of speaker cable and interconnects, and how should they compare to the above?
6.Finally, I am using the QED 79 strand cable to connect the speakers, I am thinking of changing these later too. Do you think I should change these to the CHORD ODYSSEY 2 or the VAN DEN HUL D-352 or CS-122, has anyone compared any of these, or should I try to get some VAN DAMME BLUE 4mm for cheap? Will I get much of a difference in sound to be worth the £100 plus?
