Presenting my second good quality DIY cable. I call him Mikhael. Specs:  Milloit braid #26 AWG SPC teflon wire (navships) Heatshrinked y-split and terminations Sleaved in 325 gray paracord Cardas quad eutectic solder Terminated with Amphenol 3.5 mm and HifiMan SMC connectors   Things I learned making Sascha and Mikhael: DIY cables are not as easy as everyone makes them look and sound.

Would it work if i'm just sleeving the conductors; I'm not using the whole cable, just the wires. 4 up to the y split and then 2 and 2?
Looking to recable my HE-400s soon. Considering either navships SPC or stripped down mogami 2534. Don't know which braid to use, don't know what size techflex/paracord, and don't know which connectors to use. Any help?
