brschmid's photos in this thread show them on the mini-RCA IC he built. They look great!

Right now I am looking at making Mini->Mini and Mini->RCA. Maybe making some RCAs down the line for my SACD player.

might as well get it all from markertek then, just make sure to order enough because there is a 5.00 handling charge on every order.

pacific radio would be a good choice for supplies too if you want Canare stuff.

Few more silly questions:

1) How is it to use that techflex tubing for running the Homegrown silver cabling?

2) What do you use with the heatshrink? Does a hairdryer get hot enough?

Depends on the hairdryer, mine doesn't work very well but my mom's which has several heat settings works decently. Still, I prefer to use a butane mini-torch, it's a lot faster as long as you're careful and don't burn anything. A heatgun is likely the best solution since it heats more evenly than a mini-torch and it doesn't blow stuff all over the place like a hairdryer.
