DIY Interconnect - Rega 'Couple' clone

Discussion in 'reference' started by Robert, Feb 7, 2007.

    Might be useful to anyone interested in making a good interconnect for about £22 a go.

    Rega Couple Interconnect clone (these are identical in every way right down to the way they are soldered) using Neutric Profi plugs and Klotz 'La Grange' cable.

    They sound just as good as mega buck audiophool cables for a fraction of the cost and have nice low capacitance at 70pf mtre.

    Cable can be purchased off the reel here: GUITAR CABLE mtr.htm

    Neutrik Profi plugs available at good prices here:

    Just thought i'd add this for the new style plugs in addition to Roberts guide though i'm guessing it's much the same thing: [​IMG]

    Not sure when, but Klotz appear to have since jumped into the blister pack audiophile interconnect market with AC110 shod with Neutrik ProFi RCAs.

    our audiophile high end RCA cable
    • High End Connection Cable
    • Professional RCA connector without disturbing noise while connecting
    • extreme low capacitance 65 pF/m, resp. 19 pF/ft
    • outstanding signalflow and groundbreaking fidelity
    • double screening with conductive layer and copper spiral shield
    • minimum compression
    Not exactly cheap at €161.10 for a 0.9m pair (with an unusual jump to 1.5m at €164.24). By way of comparison, Rega's Couple 3 1m Interconnect is £99.00 a pair and has Neutrik Rean RF2C 'Finger Groove' series plugs on.

    Studio Spares is showing AC110 off the reel at £2.39/m and Farnell has Neutrik NF2CB/2 (pairs) listed at £16.95. Regardless, the Neutrik Rean brand NYS373-2 plugs at £1.82 each (RS Components) are equally well made and wouldn't make a jot of difference unless one were actually hot-swapping connections.

    For the none DIY'er, @Amber Audio has pointed out that 1m pairs of ProFi shod AC110 can be had from a company in Liverpool called Studiocare Professional Audio Ltd. for £36. inc. vat (£30. ex. vat). They also offer free UK shipping on orders over £50. making 2+ pair purchases even more of a bargain.

    I notice that they currently have a 'Please contact us for availability' note on these which appears to indicate that they may not have stock at present.
