Paul1, I'm afraid you do need 'all those extensions' as you put it. The Kandid has captive flying leads ending in female sockets and the ARO has precisely the same. Naim provide female to female adaptor pins for precisely that reason and they are being used here in the manner intended. Personally I would have dressed the cables in a slightly different way, but it is correct in essence.

This is more how I would do it. In this case a Troika but the same problem:

It was, of course, the same with the Troika, for which I believe the Aro was originally designed.
I only used my Troika in an Ekos 2 - before I saw the light 8)

Both the red and the black Troikas pictured are mine and I still use rebuilt versions - really outstanding results are achievable.

Suddenly I'm minded to play a Todd Rundgren album!
