    I bought 3 pairs of the Studio Reference interconnects which are directional to hook my power amp to the processor but I've never been sure which way the interconnects should go. I know an interconnect is supposed to be "Source to Amp" but with a pre/power setup what is considered the source and what is considered the amp?

    If the cable doesn´t have arrows, the signal must flow in the direction of the writing...

    i was about to post something, but then it occurs to me im missing some info! I presume that the end of the cable where the shielding is connected to the cable will always be at signal end, ie. pre-amp?
