I ‘ll try and get Chord to lend me a pair of 3m cables. They are only just up the road from where I live.

If successful will report my listening observations.

The Crestron cable meets cat 6/7 standards but is not flat.

Hi all. Thanks for all your feedback.

I have managed to borrow a pair of Chord Epic & Signature streaming cables to try, with the intention to buy either if the improvements (if any) justify the outlay.

My friends at Martin's HiFi have offered their assistance with this issue, Big thanks to them, I've never come across a better team to deal with, I await the arrival of the cables and will post my findings in the near future.

To add to Steve’s comment, I have been in contact with Chord who recommend their Signature or Sarum T cables. The latter are rather expensive!! The former are a tad expensive!!!

Perhaps more interesting to anyone following this thread, is that the chap at Chord advises me that they need to know whether any streaming cables they are building are to be used in lieu of Speakerlink, as “they are wired depending on what is being sent from each pin, for example data, power, etc”. This applies to their “higher ranges of cables”. Read into this what you may.

I will follow up with a local supplier, but also look forward to Steve’s opinions.

Cheers
