Wire is not wire?????

Post by kingman » Sat Sep 07, 2013 12:45 pm

OK...week till the fest for me. Starting to pull the old Phase Linear stuff out and make sure it works. First piece the 4000 pre. Hooked it up and .....nothing???? It worked 2 years ago???? WTF???? Disconnected everything 5 times, switched out amps, etc. Culprit.....high quality interconnects!!!!!! This pre wasn't designed to accept interconnects that have been made in the recent 10 years!!!! Got cheap $1 interconnects in it and works fine! Guess I'll be the laugh of Carverfest this year for these dime store interconnects....GEEZ!!!! ](*,)

No Doug...your high quality interconnects would not fit into the receptacles of the 4000 pre with good contact....a design flaw/feature as they are recessed a bit.... :(
