Cable legnth
« on: June 13, 2021, 11:42:56 AM »
 Need a phono pre. Looking at a Reduction 1.1 with Integration.
 In my set up, the phono cables are 10' into a Onkyo TX-TZ3100, CD jacks.
 Would the Reduction overcome the long cable length?
 Shure M91ED
Thanks for any help.
Joe

It's marginal. To retain 20kHz response at 1dB down or less, you'd need cables of less than 60pF per foot, i.e. a total capacitance of 600pF. Half that would be better. Many cables, but not all, meet that requirement.
