    I have read that the performance of the NAD 320 amplifier can be improved by replacing the 'pre-amp metal links' with 'jumper cables'.

    The jumper cables mentioned were the Tara Labs "RSC Link" and the Audioquest "Preamp Jumpers", does anyone know of a stockist of these cables here in the UK?

    Or alternatively an American stockist who would ship to the UK.

    Cheers - Harryo

    I had considered doing that using Eichmann bullet plugs.

    Although it is possible that I can get a custom set made by a cable specialist cheaper than I could make them using the above mentioned plugs.

    Although in many ways I think cables can make a difference to a HiFi system, I would not spend more than a few quick on jumper cables. Can the amp accept bare cables?

    I have not examined the amplifier, only checked the manual but it would appear that the pre-amp would require RCA type connectors.

    If I can get an improvement in sound I do not mind paying a few quid out providing that I do not go too mad and start paying out vast sums of money on cables!
