I'd be impressed, if you can pick out different pairs of "proper'" phono sockets in a blind test....

I hate to make this remark, but what you are doing here is thread jacking. The thread specifically asks: "Why do phono sockets sound different?", so everybody posting should concentrate on that question and possible answers.


Answer...... No they don't... And if they did than you had some siriously bad oxidated/ bad solder joins/contacts what never happen on first place... (and if it did , than you'd have to resolder all components in your system every year or so.. Just to be sure..) I think it's a lot of bull to talk about modern connectors and possible influance in sound..
I bet lot of you guy's never ever been to recording studio and saw stuff they are using. You are talking about few mm's while they use ten's of meters cables to mixing console.. And that ain't cable that costs 1500$ p.m. but more likeley 10$p.m. and now I think I gave them generous overprice.. (At our studio they are using 70c p.m. and recordings are great..) So that rules out all of your theories.. And now I'm talking about something little bigger than 2 cm's of connection between your pre and end amp or between your whatever and amp..
Wake up guy's and stop bulling your self's..

Maybe you just don't want to understand.. I can agree with look some devices have , and people chose to have nice looking device.. Nothing wrong with that.. I'm no better.. But sometimes people can look in completley wrong direction to get better sound..
I was in music bussines before most of you guy's were born.. I went trough all of the developement in audio industry, and bought lot of crap in my time.. Like that guy other day, set a test set and put holders under the speaker cable...
To make electrons make easier way to speakers... He was serious about it too..
When I hear thing like that, than I think to my self.. Is this guy now really crazy, or complete idiot??

That may explain your current approach. Anyway, I made this thread just for the guys like you, so you can enjoy it and talk over it for hours.

If your time was 30-40 years ago, I'm not surprised you didn't notice any difference between phono jacks.
