I'm currently using a 17 year old Furukawa interconnect between my pre and power amps. Would I benefit from buying a new one. The original retailed at about £100 I think. Any suggestions welcome as I'll ask for one for my birthday (within reason). Or would I be better getting a better mains conditioner as the one I have again is quite cheap, a Tacima something or other CS929 or whatever? What it all boils down to is trying to get the maximum out of my kit, and these ancilliaries will last for quite a while so will be a good investment at about 50p per week over 5 years.
