"As per my reaction/ assessment to my new Elite Grand Reference phono cables, I am a little lost for words. I’m more that a little stunned! But I don’t mean this in a negative way, it’s just that the sound that I was used to hearing and expected, has gone. My ears don't believe the difference, and I am in a "state of shock". Voice; Human! Bass; More but real! Percussion; more info and detail! Highs and lows; extended! Soundstage; enlarged and much more! "Well what do you expect?", I hear you say. I just did not expect such a dramatic change. I now have to "retune’ my room and re-program my brain," - Rob
The Elite Phono Cables contain specially constructed shielded SSI Technology runs of wire. As you move up the line, more runs are introduced, providing higher and higher resolution.
The Elite phono cables are excellent for any turntable/ cartridge application. Moving magnet, moving coil and magnetic cartridges all work very well. Their application is also excellent between a SUT (step up transformer) and phono preamp. For any application form the output side of the phono preamp, please use our MA Series Interconnects. The cable is flexible and easy to manage as well as having a low noise floor with excellent RFI rejection.

SSI Technology stands for "Solid core, Small gauge, Individually insulated" wires, which is at the heart of our design.
Morrow Audio cables differ in three major areas of design from other popular cables. Our proprietary technology removes major distortions that are common in most other cable designs. Learn More
The termination options are the excellent high end Furutech RCA, Furutech angled DIN and Furutech straight DIN. You can order them in any configuration through the drop downs provided. The DIN selection comes standard with an attached spade ground wire.
GROUND WIRE NOTE: The RCA version does not come with a ground wire. It is not necessarily needed. Many tables do not require a ground wire, instead they connect that internally where the ground travels through the shield of the phono cables. If a separate ground wire is needed, you can order ours or use the one that came with your table, or some other wire that you might have around. The signal does not pass through the ground wire, so quality is not an issue.
You will find great enjoyment and improvements right out of the box. Our cables however take around 400 hours to fully break in. You can speed this process up with our optional break-in service.
If you decide to do this yourself, a cable owners manual is always provided with your order which explains what you will hear during the breakin process.
A great way to break in RCA phono cables is to hook them to a CD player and preamp, playing a CD on repeat to break in the cables. This saves wear and tear on your turntable and cartridge while at the same time provide a higher level signal to break them in.
Capacitance: 980pf/ meter.
A word about capacitance... Capacitance in a phono cable does not matter when you are using a moving coil cartridge. We have many customers who even use our phono cables with a magnetic cartridge with no ill effects or high frequency roll off.
The return period begins when you receive the cables. See Policy
