If you are still using that Van den Hul cable that came with your SME 309, IV, IV.V. or V you need the WyWires phono cable! The improvement over the Van den Hul copper or silver will be enormous with greater detail, vastly expanded soundstage, accurate timbre, elimination of fatigue and dead silence. Available in all configurations including DIN (right angle or straight)-RCA, DIN-XLR, RCA-RCA, RCA-XLR or anything else. The lead from the DIN is VERY flexible so to not affect the suspension on your turntable.
Here is what Mike Wechsberg of Positive Feedback Online had to say about the WyWires Phono Interconnect:
"The bass is big, bold and dynamic without being overblown. I think this low end is responsible for the excellent sense of pace I heard with these wires in my system.
The midrange is really sweet and clear and gave excellent rendition of male and female vocals. However, what stood out was the great way the Wywires handled piano music. The piano seemed to come up in the mix in just about every jazz, classical or pop piece I played that had a piano. Again I found the result very natural and appealing."
Here is a customer comment:
"I also noticed right off the bat that these cables carried more weight, even without burn in, than the Grover cables. I made a conscious decision in moving from the Eastern Electric Phono Preamp to the Nighthawk to sacrifice a little body in favor of a more nimble, and PRaTier presentation. The Wywires however restored much of my harmonic development and richness while maintaining the virtues of the NH. I would say the extra weight translated to a more textured presentation, equally nimble as before.
The Wywires are also pretty darn resolving cables and they accomplish this without being in your face. This is not something I noticed immediately, but as I listened to my vinyl with them in place, I experienced the cliché noticing things I never really registered before. The fun part was that this was not limited to musically insignificant things picked up in recordings, but often to things hiding in plain sight which were always there but not previously registered. A prime example of this came about listening to the first track towards the end of Miles Davis Sketches of Spain. Behind the bite of the very real and dynamic brass instruments is a soft and simple bass pizzicato holding the piece together which, I never stopped to focus on, always focusing on the horns. This is musically significant and helps build the drama of the work." Fred A, New York.
