I've never bought any (tempted), but here is Calrad's list of distributors:
Calrad's Distributors
People on head-fi have bought from Santa Cruz Electronics (probably the 319F or 309F (can't remember number) inline mini females), and I believe Westlake. Both have online ordering, but probably not Paypal.

yea the yarbos look great! too bad they dont have a full set of both mono and stero... seems like i just see stereo yarbo plugs.....


and to respond to a previous post.. i thought about a wire thread.. but then that person was right... there isnt really much difference than brand and marketing hype and sleeving... so it wouldnt be as helpful and with so many different types and gauges it would just be insane....

i have resoldered mine so many times it has almost given me vietnam flashbacks.

just bought some heavy duty 1/4 female neutrik jacks though, and they were so well thought out it almost made me cry

To me the solder tabbs in a Canare plug mean high quality. Solid brass underneith.

You count on good soldering to hold the wire, and use the strain-relief to prevent any pressure on the solder joints. Yes the strain-relief is there for a reason


a 1/4" female Neutrik? you mean that hand-grenade looking thingey with a red locking tab? I agree it is built like a tank, probably use the exact same alloy as in a Bradley.

That Calrad looks exactly like a TecNec, totally...... well, I don't have anything nice to say, might as well don't say it.

then i guess its my solder that sucks, because every time i accidentally drop the cable on the floor, one of the solder joints break off

and yes, the neutrik plug is truly built like a tank, and could easily be used to beat wild animals into submission.

Can anyone help me to get some plugs from AudioAdapter.com? I've been mailing them about international orders, but they don't seem to respond

I've been searching for the longest time for a solid 3..5 male to male adapter so I made one out of two Paliccs.
Does anyone know where I can find something like this already made

Does anyone know any EBAY sellers for these adaptors. Please post links if you do!!!

Thanks!!!
post #43 of 438
I've recently benn admonished for posting eBay links as is can cause bidding wars. I suppose, that would not be problem with multiple stock eBay sellers but still, Be careful. Mostly eBay sellers sell generic DIY cables and connectors.

Where did you find the Paliccs? We've been looking for a source.

I traded a pair of Ultimate Ears Cables with a guy in Singapore. Apparently, they can just go down to Jaben or other electronics dealers in the area and buy them off the shelf. I have an email into Jaben asking about being a source but Uncle has not responded. ( He does take a while, usually)
