    Pete do you think that's the right direction of plugging it in?
    The end is plugged into the Stello CDT.

    I don't think it matters with these particular cables.

    I use these also, they have quite a following here and it's growing all the time.

    Performance is way above what is expected at the price point :smoke:

    My best sounding RCAs were built by an audiophile named Tom Stitz. They use aircraft control cable with 22 awg silver plated OFC copper and Tara Labs plugs.

    Here's the specs on the cable:

    They sound phenomenal, and appear to be bullet proof. The only drawback is that they are quite stiff.

    Those pictures are five years old, the_nines..

    There is still a butt load of cables back there, but it`s "a little better" organized now.
    Surprisingly, there is not any hum or noise in that master living room system, or the other 6 room A/V systems that that master rack feeds !!

    I guess I must have wired it up right or got lucky as heck.. :dunno:

    Job well done. There's a method to the madness, it's all good.

    If my wife saw that, I would probably have to make a jaw-sling for her.

    Thanks, But if you ever show her the pics, and if she was/is ever inclined to complain about your system/s cables/wires, she might reconsider herself lucky that you don`t have a "snake farm" like mine !!! :eek:
    No wife ever here to be concerned about, just pretty much a whole house man cave with my nonstop CD ripped music playing all day in a shuffle mode !! :music:

    Thanks for your interest, the_nines..

    Take care Sir. and enjoy your Sunday as best you can.. :thumbsup:

    Kind regards, OKB

  18. red 111, every time I see the brand name "Peachtree" in audio, the first thing that pops to mind are the company's incredibly well-designed/priced Nova series of integrated amplifiers (e.g. models 150, 300). What is the small component by Peachtree sitting atop what I presume is the NAD C 316BEE?
