    Can anyone recommend a good balanced cable (XLR connectors) to connect the Anthem to my Rotel RMB-1095? My experience has been solely with RCA's...

    Shoot a PM to forum member Vince Maskeeper. He made me custom balanced interconnects for my AVM-20 and they sound great and the pricing is perfect.

    What price range were you looking for? I personally looked at Catcables, Blue Jeans Cables, Signal Cable, Better Cables, Wicked Cables, and Cobalt Cable. In the end I decided on Cobalt Cable, they are very well constructed cable. They are made with a Belden cable, with Neutrik XLR connectors, and they have a very flexable and atractive braided exterior. The price for the Cobalts was also down to earth, with a 1 meter cable selling for $37. Their customer service was also first rate. Before I purchased the cables I e-mailed them, and asked some questions about the cables. I expected not to get a reply for at least a day, but was really surprised to find an e-mail response about 2 hours later(now that's service!). I'm very happy with my decision, although I don't think you'd go wrong with any of the cables mentioned.

    Below are links to all the cables that I mentioned. Hope this helps.

    Lee,

    You may want to check out AVCable.com. They have a $15 3' with Neutrik connectors and Gepco 5522M cable. Also come in many different sizes in case 3' (1m) won't do you. Trying to paste the link below. Good luck.

    I'll probably end up spending upwards to $300 for all five (if I can score an odd number)... I'm using Nordost Solar Winds currently between my HK520 (using as a prepro) and the Rotel amp...
