Lots of things to do with cables and their positioning makes a difference.
I haven't tried locking the SNAIC Din on the 552 to 552PS, but it does run as close to the Burndy as possible.
Thank you Adam (Roy) for that explanation - interesting.
All I know, is that my "let them hang loose and hang free" approach as mentioned in several other threads, thus far has always seemed to sound best. The only two cables I run close together (as practical without restraints) are the preamp Burndey and it's power only SNAIC which I tighten*. This is the only SNAIC I tighten.
FYI, When cabling a populated Fraim, I start with the Burndies first, then the SNAICS then any Geddon or Lingo feeds etc, then the speaker cables. Then finally the mains, keeping it well away from all other cables. If there is to be contact between cable to cable or cable to Fraim, I minimise this as much as is possible (With the one exception of * above). It is just about possible to have everything hanging there if spacing and layout is planned. However given a choice, depending on box count, I find a two Fram set up the easiest to achive good cable dressing. A single can be tricky and with a three, sometimes it's a real balancing act allowing for the cable lengths.....All good fun though, but time consuming. Definately worth it in the end though
One other thing.......I've had a few customers tie wrap their speaker cables together for neatness...Bi-wires, bi-amped active, tri-amp active etc. DON'T PLEASE!....if you cut the wraps and part the cable a little, sit back and listen, you'll hear what I mean! (they don't need to be parted by much to hear a big improvement. You may find greater parting is better but at the expense of WAF
So up to the individual on this!
Hope the above reads ok, as hurridly written whilst getting the kids breakfast
I'll clarify points if anyone requires it.
