I just put my order in for a K702, and i've been looking at this thread to gather info on how to get a replacement cable. Now if i understood you all correctly, these are the best parts to use:
Neutrik NYS231L Male 1/8" TRS stereo plug (has a larger opening for the cable)
Mogami W2534 4 Conductor 24awg Cable
Switchcraft TA3F Female 3 pin mini-Xlr connector (the TA3FL might be a better option, but i'm not sure which part of this is actually larger)
All of those are available from Performance Audio
, will run you about $10 for the connectors and less than $1 a foot for the cable.
And this is a great place to find Braided Sleeving or Heatshrink Rubber to make your cable look more professional:CableOrganizer.comExpandable Sleeving, Fiberglass Sleeving, Braided Sleeving, Cable Sleeving, ThermashieldHeat Shrink Tubing, Heat Shrink Bands, High Temperature shrinkable Sleeves and heat guns
Now i've gathered all this info, but i can't solder at all (which is why i'm going to practice this weekend) so i thought i'd shoot the people Redco Audio
an email, to get it custom made from them with slightly different parts. Their custom cable service is very cheap, so it was worth a short. When i asked for a custom cable with these parts:
Cable Type: W2534 Mogami Quad Mic
Connector 1: F12 Canare Male Stereo Mini(1)
Connector 2: Redco Mini 3 pin Female XLR
I got a reply from Redco saying the Mogami W2534 cable will not fit in their 3pin Female XLR connector, nor will it fit in the TA3F connector.
Now i don't know who to trust. I'm at the point where i just want to order the parts from Performance Audio and try to put it together myself, but seeing i live in Europe and the shipping is going to run me almost as much as the parts, i want to be sure i order the correct ones.
Could someone who's actually made a cable with a W2534 and a TA3F weigh in?
