    I am adding a DVD-Audio player to by set up and hence need to use the 6 analog interconnects for this. I have 2 pair of AudioQuest Torquoise interconnects that are 2M and one pair that's 1M long. Would using different legths cause any noticable delay in the signal? I'd rather not have to go buy another pair of cables if I don't have to.

    Thanks.

    The difference between the lenghts is (in my mind) so inconsequential as to be irrelevant.

    If we were talking 1m vs 10 or 15m that would be another story altogether.

    If it really bothers you, you could goto your dealer and have them reterminate a set of 2m cables into 2x1m and go with all 1m ICs.

    Regards,

    You'll likely have way more error from the distance settings on your rear speakers or from the fact that yor rear speakers aren't place the same as the fronts (and that assums they are identical speakers)...in other words don't fret about it[​IMG]
