Having a high level system and a cabling capable of highlighting its merits is certainly the basis from which any audiophile worthy of the name should start. It is equally important, however, not to get lost in a glass of water, ruining the performance of what has been purchased with years of commitment, investment and study. After having read, in a few minutes, this article on the blog Ricable, you will clearly know three fundamental cabling errors that should never be committed (or should be corrected immediately!) that degrade the sound.
1st mistake: using the same socket for everything
The first thing to know is that wall sockets with multiple in series should be avoided, as should poor quality multisockets. The main problems that arise when using them are overloads, interference from different appliances and bottlenecks. It would be optimal to have two or three separate lines direct from the meter, but this is often difficult to achieve.
Therefore, a valid and at the same time more easily realisable alternative is to buy a quality multi-socket or better still a mains conditioner. Be careful, however: in some cases customers have reported to us that these reduce the listening dynamics, as do filtered multisockets.
2nd mistake: having coiled cables and tangles
The second problem is that cables, when coiled in a circular fashion, suffer from the antenna effect. This means that cable tangles encourage interference between devices. The same thing happens when we find, in our system, too much proximity between the same components.
Thesolution, in this case, is to use shielded cables and to carefully position them. Also, if possible, it would be better to use cable ties to keep the INTERCONNECT, Speaker and power cables separate.
3rd mistake: not giving importance to all types of cable
Poor quality cables create signal bottlenecks that cannot be overcome by better cables. As we have already written, in fact , the cable doesn't improve the signal, but makes it worse. Lower quality cables, among other things, are more prone to external interference. Ultimately it is not very practical, for example, to have a good cable Speaker and INTERCONNECT and then use standard power cables. It defeats the purpose of what the first two can do.
The solution is to give importance to the quality of all cables in the system, especially INTERCONNECT (both analogue and digital), Speaker and power cables, which are the ones that determine the result the most.
Ricable offers definitive solutions for every type of problem listed. All cabling errors that degrade sound have their solution. All cables feature high-quality raw materials, traditionally optimised geometries for sound transmission and special technologies resulting from unconventional research and development.
