1  Ultimate Audio Playback / Cables (Community induced) / Re: Blaxius Squared ! on: June 30, 2019, 05:23:14 pm

Because there's the rule that each 90 degree bend consumes 10cm of extra length, this adds 20 to the 20 cm to the vertical distance you already had. Take again 10 cm extra per end because of the plug's ends which are extra stiff.

Are we at 50cm now ?
Bzzz

Thanks Peter,
That sounds like 60cm, but if I really wanted to keep them on top of one another, I could add a couple more 90 bends (if the attached picture displays), 100cm should cover it.

Presumably it wouldn't exert much upward force on the upper unit and as you didn't comment on the shrillness, that presumably is not an issue.

Please tell me if I am missing something here (like kinks break the cable).

Best regards
Roger

I am looking for a BNC interconnect between a Chord M Scaler and Hugo TT2 and have read many wildly positive reviews about the Blaxius^2.

What length of cable would you recommend for units that sit on top of one another? The sockets are less than 5cm apart.

I've read that the Blaxius cable stiffness means it can make this position impractical, but it is unclear whether they meant it cannot curve through 180 over short lengths, lifts the upper unit or just that it sticks out the back horizontally, requiring clearance at the back.

There is also the issue of whether short lengths <1m sound shrill with the Blaxius as they do with some other cables.

Any advice?
Thanks
