    I'll soon be getting my hands on a balanced preamp and power amp and need XLR cables to connect them. I've been offered a Chord Cobra 2 0.75m for £30 or I can go to my ususal supplier BlueJeansCable and get that for the same price. I have no idea about cables other than I can't tell the difference between them as long as they are well made so I turn to you for advice.

    Is the Chord Cobra 2 a good cable?

    I think BlueJeans use what I like, I would stick with them. Belden 1808?

    Thanks for the reply, BJC use Belden 1800F.

    I was wrong about the price, the guy wants £50, the £30 was for the RCA version.

    I bought both :)

    I can't find the Chord cable for under £115 new so if I prefer the BJC I shouldn't lose much money on it.
