Due to my ever expanding hifi collection im going to have to split up my gear onto different hifi racks.
unfortunatley my processor is now going to to be about 1.5meters away from my cd player. Will having an interconnect of this length have any real negative effect on anything?
The reason im wondering is because my local dealer keeps telling me the interconnects should be short as possible.
Thanks
 
Doubt there would be a massive difference certinley not audible I would think.
Just use a better cable than you do now to make up for any loss!
 
Just outta piece of mind at what length would there start being a degrade in performance in this instance?
Thanks
 
If you were running balanced interconnects,length really sint too much of an issue.

With single ended interconnects,above a few metres,you may start to run into problems with interference,but even then,attention to placing of cable runs will minimise this to a degree.

Using good quality interconnects as mentioned above,and avoiding sources of interference nearby(power cables etc) should enable you to have runs of several metres without too much signal degradation.
