Hi, I just did that to mine about 2 weeks ago. The original was soldered in place. Not a real nice job either. I put RCA jacks and a banana plug in the small housing so I could use any cables I wanted. Right now it is Alpha Snakes. When I examined the original cables they were of better quality than I expected. Double shielded with what appeared to be plated copper wiring. I did not measure the capacitance of the originals nor the AS ones, but on the preamp I had to add 100pf for everything to sound proper.
