    My turntable has a smaller ground post than my receiver. Can I find cables that have different ground diameters? Neutrik are top notch. All of my XLR cables and my snake are neutrik.

    RCA connectors can make a big difference. The KLE's are great (somebody mentioned them above), and I use them in my system (TT to pre, and pre-amp to power amp). Best sounding ones I've ever heard were Bocchino's, but they are very very expensive. I have some REAN's I'm going to try as several people seem to like them and they are inexpensive. I'll let you know what I think when I get a chance to try them.

    I have looked into the KLE, as well as another company called ETI Research. The KLE Copper Harmony RCA plug is a relative steal at the moment for an all-copper RCA plug.

    ETI's unique approach is that the ground on the plug is a single point, which has an effect similar to "star grounding" and supposedly reduces eddy currents. That explanation may be a little too "tin foil hat" for me but I can appreciate the idea behind it. ;)

    Both of these are listed here (no affil):

    Paired with some Cardas litz cable, these should sound great.
