    I'm looking to upgrade the interconnects between my AV processor and amps; currently I have five Linn interconnects.

    I wonder if it's possible to beat the Linn interconnects using DIY recipies and materials?

    Recon I'll use Eichmann Bullet plugs for temination, although could be persuaded otherwise. Any suggestion for cable?

    The Linn standard interconnects are actually very good believe it or not. Open them up and check the cable relief clamps aren't crushing the cable as this affects their audio quality.

    I would guess that you could probably create better sounding analogue lead with them or from alternative cabling.

    Cheers Gordon, I will check this; fixing what one has is even cheaper than DIY!

    I am thinking of replacing them, as when I test them with CD player the mid-range is very subdued; perhaps this is caused by the problem you suggest?
