Turntable leads

Hi to all the vinyl experts out there. Heres hoping you can help me out. I have a systemdek IIX which I have just had serviced and set up by Audiofile in Cambridge - great guys by the way! It has a new 2m Blue Cart, new belt, bearing oil etc) and it sounds bloomin marvellous :dance: So whats the problem i hear you ask. Well, it will have to sit 3m away from the amp - I wont go into the whys etc but thats where it has to be. So my question is - do I replace the existing phonos wired into my deck with with 3m ones and connect directly to my amp Roksan Liii or do I buy the Rega phono mini and connect to one the auxilliary inputs on the amp. Which would be the best way to go for best sound quality - is 3m too much of a stretch for the signal direct from the deck? Would the Rega outshine the phono stage in the Roksan?

Thanks all

Yes it would be better to have the shortest distance between the phono stage and the TT.

+1. I am in a similar situation to yourself, having a long run straight from the deck is a definate no no. I've got my phono stage next to the deck. The Fono Mini as an excellent phono stage by the way.

Cheers, Ed
