Replacement tonearm cable
I'm no vinyl fan, but I've got a few LP's that's not available on file of CD, so I want to keep my old Rega in shape.
After 20+ years the insulation on the signal cable is starting to crack, and I want to replace it.
It's an awkward job to solder a new signal cable to the tonearm base; besides I suspect the tonearm wires might be as moth eaten as the external one. So I would like to replace the whole thing, from cartridge to RCAs, with one run of cable.
There's the Incognito/Cardas set, but it's too expensive when the only thing I use the Rega for is playing a few scratchy discs from the 70's and 80's. Buying tonearm wires and dress them in the proper shielding and insulation won't be much cheaper, and it's too much job in my opinion. So what I'm looking for is a 4 or 5 lead cable I can strip for the last foot to fit in the tonearm.
Will one of those microphone or 'multicables', made for use on stage or in studio, do?
