I;m looking for a phono cable that is better than the one supplied with the Dynavector DV507 mkII.

Any suggestions?

Furutech AG-12 perhaps?

You should really check out Wireworlds offerings. I have no experience with their tonearm cables, as none of my experience is with din connectors. But their other cables are amazing at noise rejection and preservation of signal, so their tonearm cables may be worth a look.

Someone once wrote that change is easy; better...not so much. A change for the better would be to ditch the DIN plug and rewire the arm with a continuous loom. I can see why some would hesitate to do this.... it's not a cheap Rega afterall...

Does anyone have first hand experience with the Furutech? if someone compared it to the Audio Sensibility, I'd be amazed.

BTW: Does anyuone know what the DV 507 mkii uses for it's phono cable/wire?

I heard that the wire is less than 37pF per foot, but for an MC cartridge, does that really matter? I have wire that is less than 37pF per foot capacitance but not 100% shielded. I don't see how one can achieve that low capacitance and still have good shielding -- unless the wire is very very thin I guess....

As for a continuous loom, the arm has a detachable headshell. You'd only save one connection point.

One of three that can be avoided, but I guess 30% is not enough to bother chasing, especially since it isn't the worst 30%.

I consider 37pF to be pretty high for wire these days, but probably not high enough to matter with MC. As for which brand is best I'd say it's a crapshoot. Pick a budget and design that appeals to you and roll the dice.

I've used the Cardas 34awg clear tonearm wire, the twisted quad version

It is a little tricky to work with, but the fiber jacket and the litz configuration are key features to reduce the effect of the wire on the signal.

That's very dear. I've got to send my kids to univ, and the pockets are no so deep.
