long phono cable lengths

Can someone tell why that I see all sorts of lengths of rca phono cable with ground, When most recommend just the one meter. Is this good or bad. Dean.

For CD or other sources long rca are not really a problem. For turntable though especially with mm the kind rca will have higher capacitance which will mess with the frequency curve, this is why mm carts specify a capacitance value
