I'm certain that some of you here must be into higher-end denim (unless you're spending all your money on headphones :) ). Anyone here collect blue gold? Participate in DWC (Denim World Championship)? Document the fades of Japanese selvage? If so, tell us about it, share your photos, let us know your favorite brands.    I personally have tried a little bit of everything: True Religion, PRPS, G-Star RAW, Diesel, Samurai. There really is nothing like the wash of PRPS...
Yup, there are plenty of DIY options out there. Amphenol makes a nice value 3.5mm mini, and Switchcraft are pretty well made. 
Perhaps the Fyssion Audio Chair? Four 3-inch drivers (two behind the head and two on the armrests) and an integrated tactile transducer. Think it's a bit more than $1K though ;)
The only time I go with unbranded connectors is if the plug simply does not exist from a legitimate brand. The quality varies quite a bit, if you order from 3-4 sources, you might get a decent one, but it's a roll of the dice. Even if you find a decent one, they quality can be inconsistent over time. So bottom line, you're probably not going to save any money, just go with Amphenol or Switchcraft ;) 
Sure, there are speaker builders lurking here, although you might have better luck on Audiocircle if you have a complex question. 
Absolutely beautiful. Really love the table, it has a nice vintage flair with the angled legs. Did you use any plans for the cabinets with the Mark Audio drivers or is it a bass reflex design built to spec? Very nice figuring in the veneer. Now all you need is some wooden speaker cables 
Getting that 3 pin XLR out of the AKG sometimes requires some patience. Sometimes they come right out, but most of the time you have to slowly extract with a dremel.  
I've tried various power conditioners, surge protectors, EMI/RFI reducers, ferrite cores, etc. They can definitely sck the life out of the sound. I found PSAudio's more simple offerings didn't harm the sound the way more mainstream line conditioners did, and they had surge protection. I've also had good luck with the Emotiva unit reducing transformer hum if you are dealing with that annoyance. 
This may not be the ideal board/forum for this question. I'd recommend checking out Partsexpress.com, they have a lot of this type of equipment and could likely help you assemble a system if you called them... or you could copy and paste your question in their forum techtalk.parts-express.com
Note the original cable is inserted into the cup, knotted, and then an adhesive is used to prevent any strain of the soldered connection to the drivers. You'll want to do something similar. If you have a glue gun that can handle quick drying adhesive/epoxy, that's the best bet.
