Just completed the Chord Music full loom with a set of Speaker Links for the Kudos Titan 808.
Anyone with these speaker links? There is no direction-arrow on them. So I get it, it doesn’t matter how you put them in place (red and black of course as on the binding posts…)?
For the amount of money you paid for a full loom…you should not have to post on this forum imo. The dealer should install at the very least advise. I would give them a call, or call Chord…ine would hope they would expect better.
Well, if these cables do in your system what they do in my system, you will be delighted.
Funny with cables…they never did it for me until 552, 500, Kudos Titan 808. Now they make sense, they take the presentation of music to another level. Expensive, yes, but the full loom delivers for the asked price, imho.
On all cables, always, the direction is marked by the writing on the cables, always running in direction of the signal; if they also have arrows, they always point in the same direction as the writing.
Also for Naim cables. My (Superlumina) rca to DiN cable has the Naim (name) running in the ‘wrong’ direction. I checked with Naim’s technical help desk and they advised that they take a sample of each new delivery and then decide which direction sounds best,
Hey Richard ,.why did you delete my other information.
It is an official task here in Sweden,.which comes from Sweden’s largest Linn-retailer.
It’s good that those who have Linn-products here know this,.then they can go to their Linn-retailer and get help turning these cables right.
Not all cables are directional. On non-directional cables, initially direction doen’t matter for SQ, but it is a good measure equally to follow the rule of writing on the cables running in direction of the signal, because once placed one way or another the electrons do align and the cables start to experience directionality, so in this way, you can never go wrong.
They check all cables irrespective of range, afaik, but I’m not aware of any other cable company that has someone who takes each cable into a listening room and plays real music through it to make sure it sounds as it should, i.e. not just pass current. I was gratified to hear that Alan Gibb, their MD, had listened to and approved my speaker cables.
