Nice work!  So are you still liking this amp or have you found something better?
Would love to see a pic when you are able!
Thanks!
When building interconnects a common construction technique is to attach both the shield and neutral leg on one side while leaving the shield unconnected at the other end.  From what I understand, you are supposed to do this on the "source" side of the cable but I have always been a little unsure as to what constitutes the source side.  If you have an interconnect going from a preamp to amp, would the source side be the preamp? 
Mint condition.  2 1/2 feet long.  I used this cable when I wanted to listen to music when I went for my daily walk.  I didn't want a cable flapping all over the place hence the short length.  This is a really good sounding cable.  It sounded great with my Sennheiser HD25s.   Check user ID skaelin on eBay to check my feedback. Also check user ID skaelin on Audiogon.
Mint condition.  9 feet, 4  inches.  Works great. High quality Neutrik plug.  See pics!   For HD580/600/650   Check user ID skaelin on eBay to check my feedback. Also check user ID skaelin on Audiogon.
OK, so I think you are referencing the small rectangular metal tab (pin 4?) extending from the inside of the connector, right?   If that's correct, then I should connect both ends of the shield to this small metal tab on each end of the cable, right?
So are you saying that I should not connect the shield at pin 1 on both ends?
  I'm building my first set of balanced XLR interconnects and I want to know if I should attached the shield to both ends of the cable?  I saw the cable building schematics on the Rane website where both ends of the shield are connected but I remember reading that some people advocate attaching the shield at the source end only.  I'm a bit unsure as to which approach to take.  I don't want to experiment and try it both ways - I just want to build the cable and be done...
Thanks!
