Howdy all -
Thought I'd introduce myself and post a few pics I just snapped in
my newly constructed lightbox. Attached you'll find a couple photogs
of random cables, as well as my two most recent projects and current
I am lucky enough to live and work in beautiful Jackson Hole Wyoming.
Mountain biking, backcountry skiing, fishing... its a tough life. Good food
Good wine - and good music!
I love music! Almost all genres on the regular. Heavy on the Reggae.
I prefer to listen to FLAC files but Pandora and podcasts daily also.
My current setup consists of:
Media Monkey -> Schiit Modi -> Nad C320BEE -> Axiom M3Ti bookshelves
Sansa (RockBox) -> Headroom The Little Version -> Grado SR225
Prone to obsessions... hi-fi has my attention again and I'm having
fun dusting off old gear and looking for some new.
In the search for some short interconnects, I discovered the DIY
cable building options out there and decided to dive in head first.
Project #1 - Cold Cloud Cu
My photography studio is called Cold Cloud Imaging so what better
way to synergize than to crank out some Cold Cloud Cables! Here's
my first attempt at an interconnect... DHC OCC Copper with Viablue
RCA's... turned out well! Unfortunately I got the label on one of them
backwards doh! Well at least they're solderless! Does anyone have any
tips on grounding these plugs? The set screw for the signal wire works
very well, creating a secure connection. But the slits on the plug body
for the ground wire are ... Help?
Project #2 - Grados reborn!
Had a pair of Sr-60's kicking around that have suffered YEARS of neglect...
decided a recable would breathe some life back into them. Also, this is
practice for upcoming project #3... recable my sr225s. First solder for me!
I'm just stoked it worked!
I like to explore the world of audio and ... get my head right!
