Merlin interconnect conundrum
Background: I have a couple of of sets of Chord Crimson Plus cables, Merlin Chopin.
When I fitted a Sky box there was a heavy hum out of one channel. Finally narrowed it down to a faulty Crimson. Found spare pair of Chord Chrysalis cables in the cupboard, but they are also knackered.
Spotted a pair of Chopins on the auction site. Chord Crimson are about £53.00 a set now, but for around £40.00 I could have the Merlins. Question is are there better interconnects I should be considering (use with either Sky box or DVD player) other than the Merlins?
