    well my phono leads are shagged on one my decks, so i may aswell replace both of them which im going to do following a youtube tutorial it seems easy enough!
    wondering if any1 has done this before and if you could link me towards some good cable which is roughly the right width?
    thanks

    Tbh i'm an electronic engineer and if these decks are only guna be used at home then aslong as the replacement cable is the same size or bigger then you'll have no problems. It doesnt make that much difference over a short cable, only would if your mixer was like 20foot away from your decks which in reality is never guna happen!

    Hope that helps :)

    Oh and i might add, you need to match the core of the cable, not the insulation of the cable.
