Anyone make Jon Risch's conector cables?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I'm going to try making my own interconnects using Jon Risch's "balanced connectors" type cables. Has anyone here made this cable?
It would seem a very high quality cable at a modest price. I for one am unable and unwilling to spend $$$$$ for interconnects.

I have made both the "skinny" 89259 cables and the "fat" 89259/89248 cables as well as the cross-connected 89259 speaker cables. The "fat" IC's are pretty good and I did not replace them until I acquired HT truthlinks. DIY Cable has unassembled cable kits and I may know someone that has some 89259 cable left

I have made the 89259/89248 twisted pair cables. I found them to have a better soundstage than the Cardas 300b's (about as high on the interconnect foodchain as I wanted to go) that I was using before at about half the price. I bought the kit from DIY Cable for my first set to learn how to make them and then did the rest from scratch.

Thank you.

Thanks for the help. I'll try a kit from DIY cable. If it works out for me I can make more on my own. The twisted pair cable seems like the best one.
I like what I saw on the DIY cable web pages. Nice speakers too.
