Conductivity
Amir, the RCA vs. balanced can be a huge difference, depending on the application, and the longer the runs, the greater the difference. But I was talking about the materials and construction of available connectors, which are primarily made the way they are not for conductivity or sound sound but to facilitate manufacturing and marketing. Look at a metals conductivity chart, and  - if you can even find out about it -  compare the metals used to make (and "plate") 99% of available connectors. Lots of room for improvement here, and even the most expensive cables  typically use crappy connectors.  I suppose its like everything else in hi-fi, there just isn't enough money in it to justify significant, thoroughgoing R&D.

Neutrik
Paul,

Do you have experience with Neutrik? What were your findings about their products?

Thanks.

Manufacturing vs. Assembly vs. Marketing
Alexandre, the web of hi-fi is all tangled up with "standard manufacturing practices".  The people who actually make the parts care more about costs and profits than sound. There are not very many companies that actually manufacture this sort of parts, and they put most of their efforts where they can make the most money.  The marketing at "our level" tries their best to convince us to buy, based on what they think we want, or what they think they can convince us to buy. Neutrik, Switchcraft, other "Big Boys" may still buy parts from baseline manufactures or "jobbers".  Many companies do not and will not give a clear, full account of all materials and processes used, and at the hi-fi level they are very prone to tell only the part they want you to think about.  Go back to the conductivity chart. I can tell you for certain that "other issues" are more important to baseline parts manufacturers, and conductivity and actual suitability for high demands hi-fi are casualties of standard industrial practices and priorities.  The "scale" of high demands hi-fi sales simply does not justify or sustain baseline manufacturers.

Best regards,
Paul S

Better keep with AN cables
Paul, thank you for your input. I think it is better to keep with AN UK cables then. :-)
