Welcome to Peak HiFi

Peak HiFi is a well established business and was formed in 2004 as audio consultants specialising in high quality audio equipment, with a particular fondness for stereo and analogue equipment, we are particularly enthusiastic for classic turntables such as the Garrard 301 and the Garrard 401. Peak HiFi offers a select range of new and approved used equipment, accessories and services. Reconditioned Garrard 301 and 401 units are available as well as beautifully engineered plinths for these decks. We welcome you to visit us at our premises in the Peak District and to take advantage of our relaxed surroundings and two demonstration rooms where we can demonstrate all of the equipment and assist you with your selection. Please call us to fix an appointment.

Rothwell River Interconnect
In stock

The River 1 metre interconnect

A high-quality cable with low capacitance and good screening and truly audiophile performance. It has silver plated copper conductors, FEP outer insulation, PTFE for the dielectric between core and screen and a capacitance of only 64pF per metre. This makes the River an ideal interconnect to use between step-up transformers and phonostages, between turntables and phonostages, or in any location where low capacitance high noise-immunity are critical. Line-level sources too can benefit from employing the properties of River interconnects. CD players, DACs, streamers etc. can benefit from a low capacitance cable to maximise bandwidth and minimise the chances of instability in circuits which are sensitive to capacitance loads. Passive pre-amps in particular should be used with low capacitance cable and the Rivers are ideal for use with both resistive passive pre-amps and transformer passive pre-amps.

 The River interconnect is also unusual in being much thinner than many “audiophile” cables. The truth is that many cables have a cheap outer insulation material such as PVC which may bulk up the overall diameter and look impressively thick but don’t actually perform particularly well - and why would a thick cable perform any better than a thin cable anyway?

The Rivers are different in using FEP as an insulator which can be made much thinner than other materials whilst being more robust and performing better.

The result is a neutral, revealing and detailed interconnect which will compete with cables at much higher prices and will out-perform many of them.


“This is a competitively priced interconnect that turns in sophisticated performance across a wide range of music, what’s not to like about that?"
