    I'm looking for some cables with single phono at one end, and 2 phono's at the other (for bi-amping).

    I've looked at the usual places, but not managed to find any ... can anyone point me in the right direction.

    THey need to either be v.short with a phono socket - 2x phono plugs, or 1m or so with single phono plug one end, and twin phono plugs at the other.

    Failing that I'm going to have to make my own ... so does anyone know where I might be able to get large bodied phono line sockets??

    Thanks

    The Velodyne HGS sub comes with a metal Y phono splitter- ask Eric.

    Those things are pennies at ARD Electronics. I've got a few and they're dead handy.

    EDIT: Four showing in stock. They come in pairs @ £1.62 (+ VAT & carriage though :(). But P&P free over £35 so it might pay to look around. I think Maplin carry these also. HTH.

    Not seen them in Maplins ... but can always find some bits to buy at Ard ... I'm thinking of buying 10 or so single sockets (unswitched) mounting them on a length of wood and using that instead of "normal" power strips.

    Can recomend their banana plugs also - got a whole load and work well even with 2x Silver Anniversary in each.

    Maplins do carry RCA splitters but i think you will need to buy the cables separately, for a better quality of connection maybe had from lektropacks, or nordorst or similar may do a specific one.

    Okay ... well found the splitters we need ... now just need to sell my RA-1060, and find an RB-985 MkII or 2x RA-970 (RA-971) at the right price ...

    That splitter did not come with my HGS18, it came with my Monster THX subwoofer cable. So Monster cable makes these.
