Audio Blast: The Schroeder Method of Interconnect Placement

By | June 18th, 2018|Categories: Dagogo|Tags: , , , |

Introduction

Recently I stumbled upon a method of connecting audio components I had never encountered, and it centers on the use of interconnects. I’ll not spend time discussing the efficacy of cabling; the reader will either be convinced of the merits of aftermarket cables, or will not. I do not intend to debate what I am about to discuss. It is up to the reader to draw conclusions about its efficacy. Likely responses to what I am about to share will parallel the hobbyist’s opinion about aftermarket audio cabling.

Audio Blast: Three new cables from two cable makers

Over the past two years my go-to cables have been from Clarity Cable and TEO Audio, makers of the Liquid Cables. I have put together literally dozens of systems using these brands, from full looms of one brand to mixtures of both. Most of the time I use them in combination to improve the performance synergy of a particular combination of electronics and speakers.

I came to each of these cable manufacturers through independent paths, yet I have learned that Chris and Melissa Owen of Clarity Cable and Taras Kowalszyszyn of TEO have great respect for each other’s cables.

Audio Blast: Ethernet Cables and XLR “Y” Adapters Survey

Ethernet: a family of computer networking technologies commonly used in local area networks (LAN), metropolitan area networks (MAN) and wide area networks (WAN). It was commercially introduced in 1980 and first standardized in 1983 as IEEE 802.3, and has since been refined to support higher bit rates and longer link distances. Over time, Ethernet has largely replaced competing wired LAN technologies such as token ring, FDDI and ARCNET.
The original 10BASE5 Ethernet uses coaxial cable as a shared medium, while the newer Ethernet variants use twisted pair and fiber optic links in conjunction with hubs or switches.
