A Question about Splicing and Interconnects

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I had someone (not a head-fi member) make an interconnect for me, with pricey branded cables and Switchcraft plugs. After about a year, the plug needed retermination, so I had to remove a part of the insulator and discovered that the pricey cable inside was actually made from 3 strands of the cable, spliced together using solder and then shrink wrapped. I'm guessing the IC was made from leftovers from other projects. I was wondering if this is considered unethical by other people who sell DIY interconnects, and if you think it might have a negative impact on sound quality. Basically, should I bother complaining about it?

They should have stated that the cable was actually separate lengths of cable soldered together.
