boring turntable cable Q? Monitor Controllers

boring turntable cable Q?

Hello there.

Just been setting up my studio and managed to hook everything up to a monitor controller. This monitor controller already has a phono input with a grounding post for hooking up a turntable.

This is good as I was able to ditch a dodgy vestax mixer I bought from ebay which never worked properly.......I only use one 'table.

Problem I have is finding a long enough grounded rca/phono lead. The one I have is a bog standard one about a meter long and it is not quite long enough. I can't for the life of me find anywhere on the web that sells longer grounded cables. 2metres would be fine I think.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

What's the connection on your turntable? What turntable is it?

It's just a stereo RCA cable with a ground wire.

Its a ****ty soundlab turntable. Has phono outs and a grounding post. Previously it was going to a vestax mixer which also had a ground post.

I have now replaced the vestax with a mackie big knob and moved the turntable further away to make my studio workflow better but the cable I have - a bog standard phono 2 phono with ground wire is too short.

Basically I just need a longer version of the cable I already have.

I'll probably ditch the turntable in a few months and buy a better audiophile one.
